Class Button<CustomAttrs>

The Button component defines an element which, when clicked, performs an action.

Other attrs will be assigned as attributes on the <button> element.

Note that a Button has no default class names. This is because a Button can be used to represent any generic clickable control, like a menu item. Common styles can be applied by providing className="Button" to the Button component.

Type Parameters




attrs: CustomAttrs

The attributes passed into the component.


element: Element

The root DOM element for the component.

state: undefined

Class component state that is persisted between redraws.

Updating this will not automatically trigger a redraw, unlike other frameworks.

This is different to Vnode state, which is always an instance of your class component.

This is undefined by default.
