freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: Render a Class Component to the DOM

Render a Class Component to the DOM


Problem Explanation

Your code should end up looking similar to this:

class TypesOfVehicles extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h1>Types of Vehicles:</h1>
        <Car />
        <Motorcycle />
      </div>
    );
  }
}
ReactDOM.render(<TypesOfVehicles />, document.getElementById("node-id"));

The ReactDOM.render syntax may be a little tricky, you need to use the triangle brackets when passing in a Class Component. Also the two subcomponents are declared behind the scenes, which may be confusing if you are used to all the variables being defined in the code editor and visible in front of you.


Hints

Hint 1

Use document.getElementById('node-id') to get target node whose id has the value ‘node-id’

Solutions

Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)

Note how you’re using concepts learned in previous challenges to render a class component with children components to the DOM using the ReactDOM method render() and the Document method getElementbyId('element-id').


class TypesOfFood extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h1>Types of Food:</h1>
        {/* change code below this line */}
        <Fruits />
        <Vegetables />
        {/* change code above this line */}
      </div>
    );
  }
};

// change code below this line
ReactDOM.render(<TypesOfFood />, document.getElementById('challenge-node'))
