    Exposing React JS to Javascript or non-reactjs applications

    • For a component created using classes you just need to add a ref attribute when including the component:
      <ComponentName ref={(componentReference) => {window.componentReference = componentReference}}/>
      
    • If it is a component created using functions then, you would also need: to import forwardRef and useImperativeHandle
      import React, { useState, forwardRef, useImperativeHandle } from 'react';
      
    • Use forwardRef when defining the functional component:
      const YourFunctionalComponent = forwardRef((props, ref) => {
      
    • Finally, inside the useImperativeHandle hook, you need to define the methods you need to expose:
      useImperativeHandle(ref, () => ({
          methodToExpose(name) {
              //Some code here!
          }
      }));
