How to use react hook setvalue in form component


React Hooks are a powerful tool when it comes to managing state in React components. They allow us to create reusable logic that can be easily shared across multiple components, making them incredibly useful for manipulating the data within form components.

In this article, we’ll cover the basics of React Hooks and how to use the setValue hook in a form component. We’ll look at how to pass values into the hook as well as how to use callback functions for updating elements on the page.

Here’s one working example of a ReactJS app using useState hook to set values in a form component.

import React, { useState } from "react";
import { useForm } from "react-hook-form";

function App() {
  const [formData, setFormData] = useState({
    name: "",
    lastname: "",
    email: "",

  const { register, handleSubmit, setValue } = useForm();

  const onSubmit = (data) => {
    // send to server

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit(onSubmit)}>
      {" "}
        onChange={(e) => setFormData({ ...formData, name: })}
      />{" "}
        onChange={(e) => setFormData({ ...formData, lastname: })}
      />{" "}
        onChange={(e) => setFormData({ ...formData, email: })}
      />{" "}
      <input type="submit" />{" "}

export default App;

The code above uses the useForm hook to set up a form, in addition to using React’s useState hook. The useForm hook provides the register, handleSubmit, and setValue methods, which the code uses to handle form data.

The code sets up an onChange handler for each form field, which updates the formData state with the current field value.

The register ref is then used to register each form field, which associates the field with the form’s data. Finally, setValue is used to set the initial value of the form fields to the values stored in the formData state.

Lastly we are setting up an onSubmit handler that logs the form data when the form is submitted. Of course, in a real app, you would do something useful in this function like sending the formData to a backend.
