In modern web development, creating reusable UI components is a must for efficiency and scalability. React, with its component-based architecture, allows developers to build encapsulated components that manage their own state and can be reused throughout applications. In this tutorial, we’ll create a simple, reusable Button component using React.

Building the Button Component

Let’s start by creating our Button component. This button will be customizable via props to handle different labels, onClick events, and styling options:

Button.tsx
import React from "react";

export function Button({ label, onClick, className }) {
  return (
    <button className={className} onClick={onClick}>
      {label}
    </button>
  );
}

Styling

To ensure that the button looks good, we can add some CSS styles. Here’s a simple example:

.Button {
  font-size: 1rem;
  padding: 0.25rem 0.5rem;
  border: none;
  border-radius: 5px;
  background-color: blue;
  color: white;
  cursor: pointer;
}

Add this CSS to your application’s stylesheet or a CSS module, and ensure it’s imported into the component or page using the Button component.

Conclusion

By using React components like our Button, you can create more interactive and engaging content for your projects. This setup allows for the flexibility with the power of React components, ideal for documentation sites, blogs, and more complex web applications.
