    How to use

    import bindToClass from 'react-bind-to-class';
     
    class Component extends React.Component {
      constructor(props) {
        super(props);
     
        bindToClass(this, [
          'onClick'
        ]);
      }
     
      onClick(e) {
      }
     
      render() {
        return <button onClick={this.onClick}>Click me</button>
      }
    }

    bindToClass will bind method onClick to the current components scope. You could do it also like:

      constructor(props) {
        super(props);
     
        this.onClick = this.onClick.bind(this);
      }

    Though in comparison to the usual bind, this bindToClass will warn you whenever you forgot to bind. Which means, that this code, will also work, keeping your app stable.

    import bindToClass from 'react-bind-to-class';
     
    class Component extends React.Component {
      constructor(props) {
        super(props);
     
        bindToClass(this, [
          'onClick'
        ]);
      }
     
      onClick(e) {
      }
     
      onKeyDown(e) {
      }
     
      render() {
        return <button onKeyDown={this.onKeyDown} onClick={this.onClick}>Click me</button>
      }
    }

    Benefits

    • All methods are bound even the onse you haven't included
      • Helps to prevent wrong this scope in event handlers
      • Gives warnings, so that it can be fixed later without stopping the app from working
    • Gives error if methodName doesn't exists at the moment of instance creation
      • Error happens before the real event
