Error Cannot read property setState of undefined

0 votes

I am getting the following error

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setState' of undefined

even after binding delta in the constructor.

class Counter extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);

        this.state = {
            count : 1
        };

        this.delta.bind(this);
    }

    delta() {
        this.setState({
            count : this.state.count++
        });
    }

    render() {
        return (
            <div>
                <h1>{this.state.count}</h1>
                <button onClick={this.delta}>+</button>
            </div>
        );
    }
}

Hello @kartik,

This is due to this.delta not being bound to this.

In order to bind set this.delta = this.delta.bind(this) in the constructor:

constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    this.state = {
        count : 1
    };

    this.delta = this.delta.bind(this);
}

Currently, you are calling bind. But bind returns a bound function. You need to set the function to its bound value.

Hope this is helpful!!

Thank you!!
