Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the join form, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- Now we are ready to join our first audience member.…We are going to create a form…that they can use to join the presentation.…And we are going to create that form as a react component.…So let's go over to our Components directory,…and expand that, and then we're going to add…this to our parts directory.…So I'm just going to right-click over the Parts…and select New File.…And then I will immediately save this file as join.js.…Now we will create this just like every other…component by requiring react.…And we will create a variable for the join component.…
We'll use React.createClass for that.…And just like every component, we need a render function.…Great.…And I'm going to go ahead and just export this now, too.…Great, so we have our shell for the component.…So this component is going to return a form.…So I'm going to come back up here to the render on line six.…And return, and instead of returning a div, or a heading 1,…we're actually going to return a form this time.…Now, we are going to lean on HTML 5…to handle our form validation,…
