How to Add Custom HTML Attributes in JSX in a React App?

Spread the love

Sometimes, we want to add custom HTML attributes in our React JSX code.

In this article, we’ll look at how to add custom HTML attributes in our React JSX code.

How to Add Custom HTML Attributes in JSX

With React 16, we can add custom attributes natively.

For instance, we can write:

render() {
  return (
    <div data-foo="bar" />
  );
}

We can just add it straight into our HTML elements without doing anything special.

Use Children with React Stateless Functional Component in TypeScript

We can pass in the interface or type alias into the generic type argument of React.FunctionComponent to set the type for ur props.

As long as the alias or interface has the children prop, we can use the children prop.

For instance, we can write:

const Foo: React.FunctionComponent<FooProps> = props => (
  <div>
    <p>{props.bar}</p>
    <p>{props.children}</p>
  </div>
);

FooProps has the bar and children entries, so we can reference both in our component.

React.FC is the shorthand for React.FunctionComponent .

Before React 16.8, we use the React.StatelessComponent type instead.

For instance, we can write:

const Foo: React.StatelessComponent<{}> = props => (
  <div>{props.children}</div>
);

or:

const Foo : React.StatelessComponent<FooProps> = props => (
  <div>
    <p>{props.propInMyProps}</p>
    <p>{props.children}</p>
  </div>
);

React.SFC is the shorthand for React.StatelessComponent.

Conclusion

With React 16, we can add custom attributes natively.
