React Class Components #4
Another way to materialize the JSX component is by using class-based components other than functional components.
*Why we use class-based components over functional components?
The state is the data that the component maintains. It can change the value, unlike props. For using state, the component should be class-based*
This is an example of a simple class-based component. First, we import the component class from the react package. Use the keyword "extends" to import the properties of React. Component in our class.Render() method helps to display the content to the browser.
The value of the state is rendered to the screen. Add a constructor method to initialize the class. Make a call to the superclass (react component). Add properties and values to this. state object.
If we are not able to change the state, it is almost the same as hard coding the values. To change state, we use this.setState() method inside an event handler. To let the react know the event handler method will change the state of the value we bind them inside the constructor.
Right now, the event handler is not able to remember its previous state. Modify the event handler, If we want to change the value of properties back and forth.
In case if we need to Increment the value of a state variable with the click of a button. Modify the event handler ..
