NavigationDuplicated Navigating to current location (“/search”) is not allowed [vuejs]

When I want to do a search multiple times it shows me the NavigationDuplicated error. My search is in the navbar and the way I have configured the search is to take the value using a model and then pass the value as a parameter to the ContentSearched component, and then receive the value of the search in that components.

I know the right way is to use a emitter, but I still don’t know how to learn to use it. To access the emit is context.emit('', someValue)

Answer

This happened to me when I had a router-link pointing to the same route. e.g. /products/1.

The user is able to click on the products, but if a product was already clicked (and the component view was already loaded) and the user attempts to click it again, the error/warning shows in the console.

You can learn more on the github issue..

Posva, one of the main contributors of vue-router suggests:

router.push(‘your-path’).catch(err => {})

However, if you don’t want to have a catch block which does nothing, in order to solve the issue you can compare the router navigation with the current route and only navigate if they differ:

const path = `/products/${id}`
if (this.$route.path !== path) this.$router.push(path)

Note: $route is an object provided by vue-router to every component. See The Route Object for more info.
