TextLink allows users to follow navigation.

Basic Usage

To implement the TextLink component, you need to import it first:

import { TextLink } from '@react-ui-org/react-ui';

And use it:

  label="How can I contribute to React UI?"

See API for all available options.

General Guidelines

Avoid using links for actions, use a Button instead. This is because users expect navigation to happen when clicking on something what looks like a link.

Custom Routing

It's common to use custom function for routing within SPAs. Use the onClick option to provide such function.

  label="This link is controlled by custom function"
  onClick={(event) => {
    alert('You will be redirected.')
    window.location = event.currentTarget.getAttribute('href');

Forwarding HTML Attributes

In addition to the options below in the component's API section, you can specify any HTML attribute you like. All attributes that don't interfere with the API of the React component are forwarded to the root <a> HTML element. This enables making the component interactive and helps to improve its accessibility.
