Material switch example MDBSwitch - calls handleSwitchChang


Topic: Material switch example MDBSwitch - calls handleSwitchChange twice

David J pro premium asked 10 months ago

Looking at your example Material switch from here:

I put in some console.log displays to check the status of the setting being toggled and I see that the onChange handler is being called twice

This is your code with just 2 lines of console.log inserted

this.state = {
        switch1: true,
        switch2: false

handleSwitchChange = nr => () => {
    let switchNumber = `switch${nr}`;
    console.log('switch number is ', switchNumber)
        [switchNumber]: !this.state[switchNumber]
    console.log('switch', !this.state[switchNumber])

render() {
    return (
            <MDBSwitch checked={this.state.switch1} onChange={this.handleSwitchChange(1)} />
            <MDBSwitch checked={this.state.switch2} onChange={this.handleSwitchChange(2)} />


the output displays like this when switch 1 is toggled.. The second switch is not being touched. enter image description here

Have you agreed that this is a bug? To me it is a serious issue as I am using onChange={this.handleSwitch} where I toggle various settings and make a DB call etc. By this onChange being called twice, the toggle ends up back in its original value and of course, I don't want to make twice as many DB calls etc I am surprised that nobdy else has reported this issue.

If you can pleas confirm that this is a defect and if it will be fixed quickly.

Thanks David
