[VUE] TypeError: Cannot convert a Symbol value to a string

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3436efce20> #<Tag:0x00007f3436efccb8>

I was using Handsontable pro version and today I have updated to latest version 7.2.2
then onwards I get this error whenever the Handsontable gets initialized in our Vue.js component.
If I comment out the part where the Handsontable is imported then this issue don’t occur
Not sure why this happens
Is there anything that I miss?

TypeError: Cannot convert a Symbol value to a string at getCustomRefDetails (backend.js:464)

Thanks in advance!

Hi @subashdbc

the issue has been mentioned here After set ref attribute in table - shows error and we are waiting for the Vue team to merge this fix https://github.com/vuejs/vue/pull/10529

Hi @aleksandra_budnik,
Thanks for the reply, and waiting for the merge

Since we’re still waiting for this, are there any potential work arounds? I was thinking maybe getting the element by id or something, but I’m not sure if that’s feasible or the best way. Makes it kinda hard to debug when I can’t access dev tools!

Here’s an update on the versions https://github.com/vuejs/vue/issues/11012 but our PRs is still waiting for a review…

This issue should no longer be replicable using the latest Handsontable for Vue and Vue 2.6.11+
