How To Check Props Type Using React.js

In this article, we will learn how to check props type using React.js.

Here,  React has some built-in type checking abilities. to run type checking on the props for a component, you can use the prototype npm module.

First, we have to install the prop-types module like below.

npm i prop-types

Then, pass props parents component to child component and check the datatype by using prop-type like below code.

import './App.css';
import React from 'react'
import Reactstrapcom from './components/reactstrapcom'

function App() {
  return (
    <div className="data-table-block">
      <Reactstrapcom name={123} />
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;
import React from 'react'
import PropTypes from 'prop-types';

const Reactstrapcom = props => {
    return (
        <h1>Props type checking -- {props.name}</h1>
    )
}
export default Reactstrapcom

Reactstrapcom.propTypes = {
    name: PropTypes.string.isRequired
    // optionalArray: PropTypes.array,
    // optionalBool: PropTypes.bool,
    // optionalFunc: PropTypes.func,
    // optionalNumber: PropTypes.number,
    // optionalObject: PropTypes.object,
    // optionalString: PropTypes.string,
    // optionalSymbol: PropTypes.symbol,
};

Here, it will give console error because here name parameter in pass number not string and prop types check the name is a string.

It will give an error like below.

If you give name props in a string like below.

import './App.css';
import React from 'react'
import Reactstrapcom from './components/reactstrapcom'

function App() {
  return (
    <div className="data-table-block">
      <Reactstrapcom name={"Hello"0} />
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;

Here, not give the error you can see below.
