Salesforce Lightning Web Components Interview Questions

1) What is LWC(Lightning Web Components)?

As of now, we have built a lightning component using the "Aura Components model". we can also build a lightning component using the "Lightning Web Components model". Lightning Web Components are custom HTML elements build using the HTML Elements and modern Javascript. We can build components using any of the models and can place these components on the same lightning page.

For developing LWC we require  "Salesforce Extensions for Visual Studio Code" and for deploying LWC from an org we require "Salesforce CLI".

Aura Components make use of own custom component model, custom templates, custom components, etc while LWC is built on web standards and it makes use of web components, templates, custom elements which we have in web standards. Both the Aura component, LWC make use of Security, LDS and Base lightning components.

Important points to note:

1) Aura component and LWC can exist on the same lightning page.
2) Aura component can include LWC

2) What is Scratch org?

Scratch org is a disposable Salesforce org used for development and testing.
Scratch org can be created for a maximum of 30 days after which scratch org gets deactivated. The default duration for Scratch org is 7 days.

3) Explain the Lightning Web Component Bundle?

LWC bundle contains an HTML file, a JavaScript file, and a metadata configuration file
and these files are created once we create a Lightning web component.

We can also create a .css file for styling purpose and We can also create SVG file for the purpose of displaying icon.

4) How to render the HTML file conditionally?

If we want to render HTML conditionally we can make use of if:true={propertyName},if:false={propertyName} in nested template tag.

5) How to iterate over an array in HTML file?

We can make use of for:each directive and iterator directive.

for:each directive:

for:each directive is used to render an array. To render an array add the for:each directive to a nested template tag, for:item is used to access the current item, for:index is used to access the current index.

Iterator directive:

If you have the requirement to access the first and the last element in the list use the iterator directive.

A sample HTML file is as shown below.

.html file

    <b>for:each directive</b>
    <template for:each={students} for:item="item" for:index="index">
        <p key={}>
    <!--Iterator directive-->
    <b>Iterator directive</b>
    <template iterator:it={students}>
<li key={}>
<!--To access the first and the last element use {it.first} and {it.last}-->

6) What are the types of decorators in lightning web components?

We have 3 Decorators in Lightning Web Components.

1) @api
2) @track
3) @wire
