  return (
    <div>
      <button

          <span> Name: {file.name} </span>
          <span> Size: {file.size} </span>

      ) : (
        <span>No file selected</span>
      )}
    </div>
  )
}

Working with selected file

If you want to perform other tasks with the selected file you can pass the callback which returns {source, name, size, file }.

import React from 'react'
import { useFileUpload } from 'use-file-upload'

const App = () => {
  const [file, selectFile] = useFileUpload()

  return (
    <div>
      <button
        onClick={() => {
          // Single File Upload
          selectFile({}, ({ source, name, size, file }) => {
            // file - is the raw File Object
            console.log({ source, name, size, file })
            // Todo: Upload to cloud.
          })
        }}
      >
        Click to Upload
      </button>

      {file ? (
        <div>
          <img src={file.source} alt='preview' />
          <span> Name: {file.name} </span>
          <span> Size: {file.size} </span>
        </div>
      ) : (
        <span>No file selected</span>
      )}
    </div>
  )
}

export default App

Multiple Files Upload

Select multiple files at a go.

import React from 'react'
import { useFileUpload } from 'use-file-upload'

const App = () => {
  const [files, selectFiles] = useFileUpload()

  return (
    <div>
      <button
        onClick={() => {
          // Single File Upload
          selectFiles({ multiple: true }, (files) => {
            // Note callback return an array
              files.map(({ source, name, size, file }) =>{
                console.log({ source, name, size, file })
              })
            // Todo: Upload to cloud.
          }))
        }}
      >
        Click to Upload
      </button>

      {files ? (
        files.map((file) => (
          <div>
            <img src={file.source} alt='preview' />
            <span> Name: {file.name} </span>
            <span> Size: {file.size} </span>
          </div>
        ))
      ) : (
        <span>No file selected</span>
      )}
    </div>
  )
}

export default App

Note: callback and files return an array for multiple files select.
