ReactJS – forceUpdate() Method

ReactJSWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

In this article, we are going to see how to execute a function by forcibly re-rendering a component.

The component in the React lifecycle only re-renders if the props passed to it or its state changes but to forcibly render the component, use the build it forceUpdate method. This method overrides the shouldComponentUpdate method defined in the component but will consider the shouldComponentUpdate method defined in the children component.

Syntax

component.forceUpdate(callback)

Example

In this example, we will build a React application that gets forcibly re-rendered on a button click.

App.jsx

import React from 'react';

class App extends React.Component {

   update = () => {
      // calling the forceUpdate() method
      this.forceUpdate();
   };
   render() {
      console.log('Component is rendered');
      return (
         <>
            <h2>TutorialsPoint</h2>
            <button onClick={this.update}>Render</button>
         </>
      );
   }
}
export default App;

Output

This will produce the following result.
