React - increment state value (class component)

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to increment state value in React.

Quick solution:

this.setState({ value: this.state.value + 1 })

Below example presents how to create a simple counter using a component's state. With setState method, we increment value on every click event.

Runnable example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

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

class App extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      value: 0,
  render() {
    return (
        <button onClick={() => this.setState({ value: this.state.value + 1 })}>
          click me
        <br />

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