ReactJS JSX Event Handling

ReactJS provides a powerful mechanism for event handling in JSX. When working with JSX elements, you can attach event handlers to them using dedicated attribute notation.

To handle events in ReactJS JSX, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a handler function: Define a function that will be executed when the event occurs. This function will contain the desired logic for handling the event.
  2. Attach the event handler to the JSX element: Inside the JSX element, add an attribute that corresponds to the event you want to handle. Set the attribute value to the handler function you created in the previous step.

Here is an example of event handling in ReactJS JSX:

import React from 'react';

function handleClick() {
  console.log('Button Clicked!');

function App() {
  return (
      <button onClick={handleClick}>Click me!</button>

export default App;

In the above example, we define a handleClick function that logs a message to the console when the button is clicked. The onClick attribute is added to the <button> element and set to the handleClick function, which serves as the click event handler.

By following this pattern, you can handle various events such as onClick, onChange, onSubmit, etc., in your ReactJS components using JSX.
