Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a header React element, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- Now let's add a header component to our app.…The header will be used to display the presentation title,…the speaker's name, and the connection status…to every app screen.…So to do this, I'm going to add a new sub folder…under our components folder.…I will right click over that folder, and select new folder.…I'm going to call this folder Parts,…and we will add our reusable components…into the Parts folder.…So from the Parts folder I will right click on that,…and I will select new file.…Now I'm immediately going to save this file…as header.js.…
So this is the file that will contain our…header React component,…and creating that header component is very similar…to creating our other component.…We need to include React, and then we need to create…the actual component using React createClass.…And createClass takes in our literal width,…at least a render function, and we're still using that…ES6 syntax for that.…So when we render the header,…what I want to do is return a header,…so I'll go ahead and set up our parentheses,…
