Update and Clear an Array in State React

--

In this tutorial, you will learn how to update and delete an array in state react.

Steps:

1-Define a state array

2-Update the state array

3-Clear the state array

1-Define a state array

We will create an array of fruits as the following:

const [fruits, setFruits] = useState(['banana','apple','strawberries']);

2-Update the state array

We will add orange fruit to our array as the following:

setFruits([...fruits,'orange']);

Pass our current ‘fruits’ array values as a copy using the spread operator. And we add the new element which comes after the comma, so our process is like setArray([currentArrayValues,theNewElement]), which will return an array containing our old data and the new one.

3-Clear the state array

To Clear our array, we need to write the following:

setFruits([]);
