In this article you will see What is an event in React?
In React, events are the triggered reactions to specific actions like mouse hover, mouse click, key press, etc. Handling these events are similar to handling events in DOM elements. But there are some syntactical differences like:
- Events are named using camel case instead of just using the lowercase.
- Events are passed as functions instead of strings.
The event argument contains a set of properties, which are specific to an event. Each event type contains its own properties and behavior which can be accessed via its event handler only.
