I’m currently working on the random quote machine React project, and Im very close to having it done however the app doesn’t want to allow me to use this.setState within a function. It continues to give me the error “Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘setState’ of undefined” however I dont understand how that is even possible as “this” worked as I expect it to elsewhere. Basically everything besides my handleClicks() function works - I currently have it simplified to have 2 static counters for personal proof of concept and am having trouble resolving the setState of undefined error.
Please provide a link to your code/project. If you do not have it hosted anywhere, pasting it to CodePen would be quite easy.
Sorry, I meant to have it in the initial post
You have not bound
this to the method
handleClicks…do this, and it should work.
Here is a relevant lesson: https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/front-end-libraries/react/bind-this-to-a-class-method
Hope this helps
I just did that - and now the entire page wont render.
I suggest you go over the linked lesson, above. You have not done it quite right.
Ahhhhh, I was thinking it came after the constructor rather than inside it. Thank you so much for your time and help!
