The "as" Prop
In Chakra UI, nearly all components accept the as prop. This allows you to create new component variants quickly and efficiently without having to create additional styled components.
Do note that while as prop provides a flexible way to adjust the component's rendered element, it may not be suitable in all scenarios. If a component has complex logic or state associated with it, it may be more suitable to build a dedicated component instead. Also, remember to ensure the semantiHTMLHTML are maintained when using the as prop for accessibility reasons.
To import the Box and Text components used below:
Rendering a Text Component as a h1: This example demonstrates rendering a Text component as a h1. Here, the component will retain all the functionalities of the Text component, but be semantically rendered as a h1.
Using a Custom Component with as prop: You can also pass a custom component to the as prop. This is particularly useful if you have a component that should sometimes render as one type of element and sometimes as another. In this example, a Box is rendered as a CustomComponent. This means the Box will now have the appearance defined in the CustomComponent.
Here's an example using React's built-in useState hook to manage whether a message box is displayed or not. In this example, we create a Box component and render it as a button HTML element using Chakra's as prop. We also add a hover effect using the _hover prop. The onClick prop is set to a function that toggles the isOpen state value between true and false when the button is clicked, thus controlling the visibility of the message box.
