How can I get the selected data on my modal window(on button click) based on the v-for value?

I am new to Vue and am using the Bootstrap modals to display product information. I have grid containers that each have a product picture, description, and two buttons. One of the buttons(More details >>), when clicked, would shoot a modal window that should show the very same product description and picture of the grid it was contained in.

<div id="myapp">
  <h1> {{ allRecords() }} </h1>
  <div class="wrapper" >
    <div class="grid-container" v-for="product in products" v-bind:key="product.ID">
      <div class="Area-1">
        <img class="product_image" src="https:....single_product.jpg"> 
      </div>
      <div class="Area-2">
        <div class = "amount">
          {{ product.amount }}
        </div>
        {{ product.Description }}
      </div>
      <div class="Area-3">
        <b-button size="sm" v-b-modal="'myModal'" product_item = "'product'">
          More Details >>
        </b-button>
        <b-modal id="myModal" >
          <h1> {{ product.Name }} </h1>
          <h3> {{ product.Description }} </h3>
        </b-modal>
      </div>
      <div class="Area-4">
        <br><button>Buy</button>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
var app = new Vue({
  'el': '#myapp',
  data: {
    products: "",
    productID: 0
  },
  methods: {
    allRecords: function(){
      axios.get('ajaxfile.php')
        .then(function (response) {
          app.products = response.data;
        })
        .catch(function (error) {
          console.log(error);
        });
    },
  }
})

Area 1, 2 and 4 work perfectly fine and they display the product data according to the v-for value and as expected respectively for each grid container. Area 3 is a problem here when I click the More details >> button, I just see a faded black screen. I am not sure what I am doing wrong here, would really appreciate some help.

Answer

Add a property selectedProduct, then on More Details button click event, assign the current product to the selectedProduct member as below :

HTML

  <div class="Area-3">
    <b-button size="sm" v-b-modal="'myModal'" 
             @click="selectProduct(product)">More Details >> </b-button>    
    <b-modal id="myModal">
             <h1> {{ this.selectedProduct.Name }} </h1>
             <h3> {{ this.selectedProduct.Description }} </h3>
    </b-modal>
  </div>

Javascript:

var app = new Vue({
 'el': '#myapp',
 data: {
    products: "",
    productID: 0,
    selectedProduct: {Name: '', Description: '', Amount:0}
 },
 methods: {
   allRecords: function(){
   ...
   },
   selectProduct: function(product)
   {
       this.selectedProduct = product;
   }
   ...
 }
