ReactJS Conditional Rendering

Conditional rendering in ReactJS refers to the practice of showing or hiding components or elements based on certain conditions or logic. React provides several ways to conditionally render content, depending on your requirements. Here are some common techniques for conditional rendering in React:

1. Using the if Statement:

You can use JavaScript’s if statements or ternary operators to conditionally render content in your JSX:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';

function ConditionalRendering(props) {
  const isTrue = props.isTrue;

  return (
    <div>
      {isTrue ? <p>It's true!</p> : <p>It's false!</p>}
    </div>
  );
}

export default ConditionalRendering;

In this example, the content inside the curly braces will be rendered based on the value of the isTrue prop.

2. Using the && Operator:

You can use the && operator to conditionally render content when a condition is true:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';

function ConditionalRendering(props) {
  const isTrue = props.isTrue;

  return (
    <div>
      {isTrue && <p>It's true!</p>}
    </div>
  );
}

export default ConditionalRendering;

If isTrue is true, the paragraph element will be rendered; otherwise, nothing will be rendered.

3. Using the ternary Operator:

The ternary operator (condition ? trueBlock : falseBlock) allows you to conditionally render one of two blocks based on a condition:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';

function ConditionalRendering(props) {
  const isTrue = props.isTrue;

  return (
    <div>
      {isTrue ? <p>It's true!</p> : <p>It's false!</p>}
    </div>
  );
}

export default ConditionalRendering;

In this case, the first paragraph will be rendered if isTrue is true, and the second paragraph will be rendered if it’s false.

4. Using Functions for Conditional Rendering:

You can create separate functions to determine what to render based on conditions:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';

function TrueComponent() {
  return <p>It's true!</p>;
}

function FalseComponent() {
  return <p>It's false!</p>;
}

function ConditionalRendering(props) {
  const isTrue = props.isTrue;

  return (
    <div>
      {isTrue ? <TrueComponent /> : <FalseComponent />}
    </div>
  );
}

export default ConditionalRendering;

By using functions like TrueComponent and FalseComponent, you can keep your JSX cleaner and more modular.

5. Using if-else Statements (Inside a Function):

In a functional component, you can use regular if-else statements to conditionally render content within the return statement:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';

function ConditionalRendering(props) {
  const isTrue = props.isTrue;

  if (isTrue) {
    return <p>It's true!</p>;
  } else {
    return <p>It's false!</p>;
  }
}

export default ConditionalRendering;

This approach is useful for more complex conditional rendering logic.

These are some of the common methods for conditional rendering in React. You can choose the one that best fits your specific use case and coding style.
