  8. }
  9.  
  10. .THIS .slds-input.has-error + ul.has-error, .THIS .slds-select.has-error + ul.has-error{border:2px #c23934 solid; border-radius: 3px;}

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How do you call a child method from the parent component?

One way to call a child component's function from its parent is with the help of the useRef hook. Here's the gist of it: We pass a Ref to a child component and assign the desired function to the Ref's current key. This then gives you access to that very function in the parent component.

How do you open lightning component from another lightning component?

To navigate from a Lightning component to another, specify the component name using componentDef . This example navigates to a component c:myComponent and sets a value on the contactId attribute.

How do you call one LWC from another LWC?

However, there is a workaround, if you want to navigate the user from one LWC to another LWC, you can embed LWC in an Aura Component and navigate the user from LWC to an Aura Component. Out of the box, LWC framework provides us helper methods to send the user from Lightning Web Component to an Aura Component.
