How to Select multiple button element on click

Hi everyone, Using ReactJs, I want to change the text and style of these 5 button when each of them is clicked.
i.e:

  • if button 1 is clicked change text and button background
  • if button 2 is clicked too, change text and button background
  • if button 3 is clicked too, change text and button background too
    …and so on

These buttons are displayed after mapping through a data like the example below

import react from 'react'

const buttons = [1, 2, 3,4,5];

const ActiveButtons = () => {

return (
{buttons.map((btn, i) => {
   return <button key={i}>Click me</button>
})}
)

}

export default ActiveButtons

Hi @adefesoq, you can have your ActiveButtons component maintain a state of active buttons:

function ActiveButtons () {
  const [active, setActive] = useState([])
  const buttons = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

  return buttons.map(key => {
    const isActive = active.includes(key)

    return (
      <button
        key={key}
        onClick={() => !isActive && setActive([...active, key])}
        style={{ background: isActive ? 'red' : 'white' }}
      >
        Button {key}
      </button>
    )
  })
}

Or to toggle the active state:

function ActiveButtons () {
  const [active, setActive] = useState([])
  const buttons = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

  return buttons.map(key => {
    const isActive = active.includes(key)

    return (
      <button
        key={key}
        onClick={() => setActive(isActive
          ? active.filter(current => current !== key)
          : [...active, key]
        )}
        style={{ background: isActive ? 'red' : 'white' }}
      >
        Button {key}
      </button>
    )
  })
}

Thank you @m3g4p0p but the toggle active state code doesn’t work (toggle) on my end here.

Can you please have a look at the code

Have you imported useState?

import React, { useState } from 'react';

(from the State page linked in mega’s post)
