TagInput

inputvisualstateintermediate

Renders a tag input field.

  • Define a TagInput component and use React.useState() hook to initialize an array with tags passed as props.
  • Use Array.prototype.map() on collected nodes to render the list of tags.
  • Define the addTags method, which will be executed on pressing the Enter key.
  • The addTags method uses the setTags method to add the new tag using the spread (...) operator to prepend the existing tags and adds the new tag at the end of the tags array.
  • Define the removeTags method, which will be executed on clicking the delete icon in the tag.
  • Use Array.prototype.filter() in removeTags method to remove the tag using the index of the tag to filter it out from tags array.
