To get a clicked element with Vue.js 2 first add a method in your component. Note the comment in the code below.

methods: {
    myFunction: (document, event) => {

        // This gets the clicked element as jQuery
        var $element = $(;

Then simply pass document and $event via @click.

<button @click="myFunction(document, $event)">Button</button>
