React ReactJS with jQuery


Example

Firstly, you have to import jquery library . We also need to import findDOmNode as we’re going to manipulate the dom. And obviously we are importing React as well.

import React from 'react';
import { findDOMNode } from ‘react-dom’;
import $ from ‘jquery’;

We are setting an arrow function ‘handleToggle’ that will fire when an icon will be clicked. We’re just showing and hiding a div with a reference naming ‘toggle’ onClick over an icon.

handleToggle = () => {
    const el = findDOMNode(this.refs.toggle);
    $(el).slideToggle();
};

Let’s now set the reference naming ‘toggle’

<ul className=”profile-info additional-profile-info-list” ref=”toggle”>
  <li>
    <span className=”info-email”>Office Email</span>   me@shuvohabib.com
  </li>
</ul>

The div element where we will fire the ‘handleToggle’ on onClick.

 <div className=”ellipsis-click” onClick={this.handleToggle}>
   <i className=”fa-ellipsis-h”/>
 </div>

Let review the full code below, how it looks like .

import React from ‘react’;
import { findDOMNode } from ‘react-dom’;
import $ from ‘jquery’;

export default class FullDesc extends React.Component {
    constructor() {
        super();
    }

    handleToggle = () => {
        const el = findDOMNode(this.refs.toggle);
        $(el).slideToggle();
    };

    render() {
        return (
            <div className=”long-desc”>
                <ul className=”profile-info”>
                    <li>
                        <span className=”info-title”>User Name : </span> Shuvo Habib
                    </li>
                </ul>

                <ul className=”profile-info additional-profile-info-list” ref=”toggle”>
                    <li>
                        <span className=”info-email”>Office Email</span> me@shuvohabib.com
                    </li>
                </ul>
                
                <div className=”ellipsis-click” onClick={this.handleToggle}>
                    <i className=”fa-ellipsis-h”/>
                </div>
            </div>
        );
    }
}

We are done! This is the way, how we can use jQuery in React component.
