Use Getters and Setters to Modify Data
To execute logic each time a public property is set, write a custom setter.
If you write a setter for a public property, you must also write a getter. Annotate either the getter or the setter with
@api, but not both.
For consistency, the examples in this guide and in the lwc-recipes repo annotate the getter and present the getter before the setter.
To hold the property value inside the getter and setter, use a field. This example uses the
_uppercaseItemName property, which is prefixed with an underscore to indicate that the property is private.
<c-todo-item> component converts a string to uppercase.
The property value is provided to the template via the getter.
You can also handle errors in your getter with a try-catch block.
For another example of using a getter and setter, see the
todoList components in the lwc-recipes sample repo.
