MDBSwitch with React Context API - not rendering the screen

Topic: MDBSwitch with React Context API - not rendering the screen changes

David J asked 3 years ago

I am using MDBSwitch as follows:

<div className='d-flex'>
     <MDBSwitch checked={this.context.settings.switch1} 
    labelLeft="" labelRight=""  

I am then using React Context API to insert some text into the display as follows:

     {({ tilt }) => <p> Hi {tilt}</p>}

Also in my screen I have 2 buttons - pressing one toggles the other off etc. On initial entry - I see 'Hi' displayed.

in the onChange handler I set some text in 'the context variable - tilt. However that text is not then being displayed. So it appears that MDBSwitch may not be causing a re-render??

If I press one of my MDBBtn's to toggle between one button and the other, the tilt text does then get displayed. so MDBBtn press is causing the re-render.

It is difficult to be certain as there is already an outstanding defect with MDBSwitch that causes the onchange handler to be run twice

On initial entry I see 'Hi' displayed if I press the MDBSwitch - the text doesn't appear - till I click one of the unrelated buttons. enter image description here

Resolved. Not a problem.

I think it would look alot cleaner, if you would mark your question as "resolved" and not just close it :)

Just the perfectionist in me haha

Best regards, Chris

'Resolved' might infer MDB had addressed it. In this instance I resolved this myself so 'closed' was appropriate.
