# SessionStorage

SessionStorage (opens new window).

# Parameters

import { useSessionStorage } from "vue-composable";

const SessionStorage = useSessionStorage(key, defaultValue?, sync?);
Parameters Type Required Default Description
key string, ref<string> true Key that will be used to store in SessionStorage
defaultValue object false undefined default value stored in the SessionStorage
sync Boolean false true sets the storage to sync automatically between tabs

# State

The useSessionStorage function exposes the following reactive state:

import { useSessionStorage } from "vue-composable";

const { supported, storage } = useSessionStorage(key);
State Type Description
supported boolean returns true is SessionStorage is available
storage Ref<any> handler with SessionStorage value

# Methods

The useSessionStorage function exposes the following methods:

import { useSessionStorage } from "vue-composable";

const { remove, clear, setSync } = useSessionStorage(key);
Signature Description
remove() Removes key from the SessionStorage, equivalent as storage.value = undefined
clear() Clears all used SessionStorage used so far
setSync(boolean) Does nothing, since the session is only available on the tab, this is here to allow the same API as useLocalStorage. Returns false

# Example

sessionStorage: 1

supported: false

Check the value in the dev tools: `__vue_sessionStorage_example`

# Code

    sessionStorage: {{ storage }}
      <b :class="{ green: supported, red: !supported }">{{ supported }}</b>
      <b>Check the value in the dev tools: `{{ key }}`</b>
    <label for="storage">
      <input name="storage" v-model="storage" />

      <button @click="remove">Remove</button>

import { useSessionStorage } from "vue-composable";
import { ref, watch } from "@vue/composition-api";
export default {
  name: "session-storage-example",

  setup() {
    const key = "__vue_sessionStorage_example";
    const tabSync = ref(false);
    const { supported, storage, remove } = useSessionStorage(key, 1);

    return {

.red {
  color: red;
.green {
  color: green;

# Notes

This uses WebStorage, if access to the internal store is required, use useWebStorage('sessionStorage').store to access it.
