To use the ternary operator in React.js, follow these steps:

  1. Identify the condition that you want to evaluate. For example, let's say we have a variable isTrue that holds a boolean value.
  2. Determine the desired output when the condition is true. For example, if isTrue is true, we want to display the text "True".
  3. Determine the desired output when the condition is false. For example, if isTrue is false, we want to display the text "False".
  4. Use the ternary operator to evaluate the condition and display the appropriate output. Here's the general syntax: {condition ? trueOutput : falseOutput} Replace condition with the actual condition you want to evaluate, trueOutput with the output when the condition is true, and falseOutput with the output when the condition is false.
  5. Implement the ternary operator in your React component. Here's an example that demonstrates how to use the ternary operator in a JSX expression: import React from 'react'; function MyComponent() { const isTrue = true; return ( ); } export default MyComponent; In this example, the condition isTrue is evaluated, and if it is true, the paragraph element containing the text "True" is rendered. Otherwise, the paragraph element containing the text "False" is rendered.
  6. Customize the true and false outputs as needed. Instead of using simple text, you can render more complex JSX elements or components based on the condition.
