0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to update the state of a component with onClick event handler in React.

Below example presents how to pass setState method that updates our state with new value to the onClick event handling function.

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 = {
      value: 'state value',
  render() {
    return (
        <button onClick={() => this.setState({ value: 'updated value' })}>
          Update state.
        <br />

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