Vue.js v-on:click.ctrl Directive

The v-on:click.ctrl directive is a Vue.js directive used to add a click event listener to an element. While click directive triggers the event for all kinds of clicks, this directive only triggers the event when the ctrl key is pressed along with the click. First, we will create a div element with id as an app, and let’s apply the v-on:click.ctrl directive to an element. Further, we can execute a function when click even occurs.



Parameters: This directive accepts a function that will be executed when the Ctrl + click event occurs.

Example: This example uses VueJS to toggle the visibility of an element with v-on:click.ctrl.






<!DOCTYPE html>
        VueJS v-on:click.ctrl directive
    <!-- Load Vuejs -->
    <script src=
    <div style="text-align: center;width: 600px;">
        <h1 style="color: green;">
            VueJS | v-on:click.ctrl directive
    <div id="canvas" style=
            "border:1px solid #000000;
            width: 600px;height: 200px;">
        <div id="app" style=
            "text-align: center; 
            padding-top: 40px;">
            <button v-on:click.ctrl=
                "data = !data">Show
            <h1 v-if="data">
                Ctrl + Click is pressed
        var app = new Vue({
            el: '#app',
            data: {
                data: false
