FAQ

How to focus

Get a ref to inner textarea:

<Textarea inputRef={tag => (this.textarea = tag)} />

And then call a focus on that ref:

this.textarea.focus();

To autofocus:

<Textarea autoFocus />

(all HTML attributes are passed to inner textarea)

How to test it with jest and react-test-renderer

Because jest provides polyfills for DOM
objects by requiring jsdom and
react-test-renderer doesn't
provide refs for rendered components out of the box (calling ref callbacks with
null), you need to supply a mocked ref in your tests. You can do it like this
(more can be read
here):

const tree = renderer
  .create(<Textarea />, {
    createNodeMock: () => document.createElement("textarea")
  })
  .toJSON();
