Emit event from content in slot to parent

Slots are compiled against the parent component scope, therefore events you emit from the slot will only be received by the component the template belongs to.

If you want interaction between the carousel and slides, you can use a scoped slot instead which allows you to expose data and methods from the carousel to the slot.

Assuming your carousel component has next and close methods:

Carousel template:

<div class="carousel">
  <div class="slides" ref="slides">
    <slot :next="next" :close="close"></slot>
    <!-- Other carousel controls like arrows, indicators etc go here -->

Carousel example usage:

<my-carousel v-slot="scope">
  <div class="slide">
    <button @click="scope.next">Next</button>

  <div class="slide">
    <button @click="scope.close">Close</button>
