How to fix Vue.js data-bind style background image not working with JavaScript?

When using Vue.js to bind the style attribute with a background image, you need to ensure that you are correctly formatting the URL within the template.

To do this, we write:

  <div :style="{ backgroundImage: 'url(' + imageUrl + ')' }">
    <!-- Other content here -->

export default {
  data() {
    return {
      imageUrl: 'path/to/your/image.jpg'

/* Additional styles for the div */

In this example, we’re using the :style directive to bind an object to the style attribute of the <div>.

Within the object, we specify backgroundImage as the property name and concatenate the imageUrl variable with the 'url(' + imageUrl + ')' string to form the URL.

Make sure to replace 'path/to/your/image.jpg' with the actual path to your image.

If this approach doesn’t work, ensure that the imageUrl variable is correctly set in the data of your Vue component.

You can check it by outputting the value in the template or using Vue DevTools.

If the problem persists, there might be issues with the path to your image file or the CSS being overridden by other styles.

You can inspect the element in the browser’s developer tools to see if the style is correctly applied and troubleshoot any CSS conflicts.
