A simple example - Textbox

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import EasyEdit from 'react-easy-edit';

function App() {

  const save = (value) => {alert(value)}
  const cancel = () => {alert("Cancelled")}

  return (
    <EasyEdit
      type="text"
      onSave={save}
      onCancel={cancel}
      saveButtonLabel="Save Me"
      cancelButtonLabel="Cancel Me"
      attributes={{ name: "awesome-input", id: 1}}
      instructions="Star this repo!"
    />
  );
}

Radio buttons

<EasyEdit
  type="radio"
  value="one"
  onSave={save}
  options={[
      {label: 'First option', value: 'one'},
      {label: 'Second option', value: 'two'}]}
  instructions="Custom instructions"
/>

Date

<EasyEdit
  type="date"
  onSave={save}
  instructions="Select your date of birth"
/>
<EasyEdit
  type="select"
  options={[
      {label: 'First option', value: 'one'},
      {label: 'Second option', value: 'two'}]}
  onSave={save}
  placeholder="My Placeholder"
  instructions="Custom instructions"
/>

Datalist

<EasyEdit
  type="datalist"
  options={[
      {label: 'First option', value: 'one'},
      {label: 'Second option', value: 'two'}]}
  onSave={save}
  instructions="Custom instructions"
/>

Checkboxes

<EasyEdit
  type="checkbox"
  options={[
      {label: 'First option', value: 'one'},
      {label: 'Second option', value: 'two'}]}
  onSave={save}
  value={['one', 'two']} // this will preselect both options
/>

Custom components

When using custom input components, they must be passed in as props, like so:

<EasyEdit
    type="text"
    onSave={() => {}}
    editComponent={<CustomInput />}
    displayComponent={<CustomDisplay />}
/>

When defining a custom input component, the function setParentValue is injected into your custom component, which must be called in order to pass the desired value up to the parent EasyEdit component.

For example, if your component was a text field that needed to set the EasyEdit value as a user id based on a username entered, you would need to pass the id to this.props.setParentValue in order to get that value to the EasyEdit component.

e.g.

// Inside your custom input

onChange(searchTerm) {
  getUserIdByUsername(searchTerm).then((userId) => {
    this.props.setParentValue(userId);
  })
}
