There are several ways to reload the page in React.js:

  1. Using the window.location.reload() method: You can use the window.location object and its reload() method to reload the current page.

import React from 'react';

const MyComponent = () => {
  const handleReload = () => {
    window.location.reload();
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleReload}>Reload Page</button>
    </div>
  );
};

export default MyComponent;


  1. Using a button with type="submit": When you have a form in your React component, you can use a button with type="submit" to reload the page when clicked.

    event.preventDefault();
    window.location.reload();
  };

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit}>
      {/* form content */}
      <button type="submit">Reload Page</button>
    </form>
  );
};

export default MyComponent;


  1. Using React Router: If you are using React Router for navigation, you can use the history object to reload the route.

import { useHistory } from 'react-router-dom';

const MyComponent = () => {
  const history = useHistory();

  const handleReload = () => {
    history.go(0);
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleReload}>Reload Page</button>
    </div>
  );
};

export default MyComponent;


Note: The use of window.location.reload() in React is generally discouraged as it reloads the entire page, causing all component state to be lost. It is better to manage state and data updates in a more controlled manner using React's lifecycle methods or state management libraries like Redux.
