Topic: Add React File input (MDBFileInput) to a form

free asked 5 years ago


I cannot manage to add a file input to one of my existing form. It seems that the component "MDBFileInput" contains a form element within producing the following error message:

Warning: validateDOMNesting(...): <form> cannot appear as a descendant of <form>.

Please advise. Many thanks for your time.

Yes indeed, it is made as an input wrapped inside the tag. It obviously needs to be refactored then.

Thank you for posting the problem, we will handle it as soon as possible.
