Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Using properties, part of Learning React.js (2016).
- [Voiceover] We can make our components more dynamic…by adding properties.…Sending properties to a component is very similar…to adding attributes to HTML.…The first thing that we'll do to demonstrate this…is we’re going to add an attribute here on line 22.…For text equals “Hello World”…and now instead of using “Hello World inside of this H1,…I'm actually going to use this…dot Props dot text”.…So this is just some JSX syntax.…
We’re going to wrap any JSX expression in these curly braces…and then we’re going to reference this on the Props object…by referring to text.…So if I give this a save and I load it up in my browser,…I should see the same thing appearing, “Hello World”.…Now, this makes it extremely useful when we’re dealing…with reusable components.…So if I create this one MyComponent,…I can use it as many times as I'd like to.…So let’s go ahead and demonstrate this by adding a Div.…
So React always wants to render one element.…So we’re going to wrap these multiple MyComponents…in this Div.…So, let’s just copy and paste a couple MyComponents here…
