Make sure to add the given code in the public/index.html file:

<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@5.3.1/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

Create Component File

Head over to components/ folder, here you have to create Home.vue file with given code.

<template>
    <div>
        
    </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
    data() {
        return {
        }
    }
}
</script>

Update Data with Axios POST Method

The updateReq() method encapsulates all the logic that communicates with the server in relation to update the data in Vue through Axios HTTP Put method.

Add the below code in the components/Home.vue file:

<template>
    <div>
        <h2 class="mb-4">Vue 3 Axios HTTP Put Request Example</h2>
        <input v-model="updateName" class="form-control mb-3" placeholder="Name">
        <button @click="updateReq" class="btn btn-primary">Update</button>
    </div>
</template>
  
<script>
import axios from 'axios';

export default {
    data() {
        return {
            userId: 1,
            updateName: ''
        };
    },
    methods: {
        updateReq() {
            const updatedUserData = {
                name: this.updateName
            };

            axios.put(`https://api.example.com/resources/${this.userId}`, updatedUserData)
                .then(res => {
                    console.log('Update successful:', res.data);
                })
                .catch(error => {
                    console.error('Error:', error);
                });
        }
    }
};
</script>

Register New Component

You have to open the App.vue file, and make sure to import the component that you want to register and see in action on the browser.

<template>
  <div class="container mt-5">
    <Home />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import Home from './components/Home.vue';

export default {
  components: {
    Home
  }
}
</script>
