"TypeError: Cannot call a class as a function" in Vue

This issue has been tracked since 2021-09-06.

I'm getting the following error message when trying to implement simple keyboard into my page:

TypeError: Cannot call a class as a function

The stack trace is:

Based on your (broken) Vue example (https://hodgef.com/simple-keyboard/editor/?d=hodgef/vue-simple-keyboard/tree/master), my implementation looks as follows (reduced example):

    <CModal id="on-screen-keyboard"

      <Keyboard @onChange="onChange" @onKeyPress="onKeyPress" :input="input" />


import Keyboard from 'simple-keyboard';

export default {
  components: {Keyboard},
  data() {
    input: ''
  methods: {
            onChange(input) {
                this.input = input;
            onKeyPress(button) {
                console.log("button", button);
            onInputChange(input) {
                this.input = input.target.value;

Any idea, why this doesn't work?

Hello @AnReZa, could you provide a test github repo showing your issue?

The sandbox in question hasn't been updated recently, therefore I suspect a breaking change in CodeSandbox. I have filed the issue codesandbox/codesandbox-client#6105 with their team. Edit: The Codesandbox team fixed the issue and the Vue demos should be accessible now.

I will reopen this as soon as I get a repro regarding your error above.
