What Is a Slot?

A slot is a small opening or a position. It can be used to describe a copy desk interior occupied by the chief copy editor or the opening between the primaries of an aircraft wing, which provides airflow.

A slot can also be a receptacle on a printed circuit board. It allows components to pass values from one to another, and is so useful that it’s often used in electronics to manage air traffic at busy airports!

Scoped slots allow you to use a component’s data for customizing a template. This feature is especially useful if you’re developing an API that requires data to be passed.

In addition, a scoped slot can be used to pass data to a child component, which can then prepare the external API using this data. This is a powerful feature that can save you time and effort!

Slot type, class or category

A slot type can be defined as a name that must not be case sensitive. Alternatively, it can be an enumeration value.

Slots are used in many different applications, from air traffic control to securing doors from intruders. They can even adjust the odds of a certain symbol coming up in a game of chance.
