React - class component force re-render

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to force re-render in a class component in React.

Any change of state causes component rendering, so using e.g. counter in the state, we are able to force re-rendering always when setState() method changes (increments) the value of our counter.

Runnable example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

// Note: Uncomment import lines during working with JSX Compiler.
// import React from 'react';
// import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';

class App extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = { counter: 0 };

  render() {
    console.log('App component rednering...');
    return (
        <button onClick={() => this.setState({ counter: this.state.counter + 1 })}>
         force re-rendering

const root = document.querySelector('#root');
ReactDOM.render(<App />, root);
