React JSX Question

What is the best way to create text input Redux

I Created a simple text field component using react-redux.

This is a dumb component, so it receive a call back function to dispatch the change.

So on each change it changes its local state and on Blur it calls the call back function.

I think i'm doing too much for such a simple task it look like an overkill, is there better/shorter way to implement it?

export default class CreativeName extends Component {
constructor(props) {
this.state = {
creativeName: props.creativeName

componentWillReceiveProps(nextProps) {
creativeName: nextProps.creativeName

onBlur() {
this.props.updateDraft('creativeName', this.state.creativeName);

onChange(e) {`enter code here`

render() {
return (
<Col lg={12} className="row-margin">
<div className="campaign-name">
<FormControl value={this.state.creativeName} type="text" onChange={(e) => this.onChange(e)}
onBlur={(e) => this.onBlur(e)} className="campaign-name-text-field" />


I really recommend that use redux-form. redux-form store input values in global state. By redux-from you can have very usable input tags of react components.

For example:

import React, { Component, PropTypes} from 'react';

export default class FormInputTextBox extends Component {
  static PropTypes = {
    field: PropTypes.object.isRequired,
    placeholder: PropTypes.string,
    disabled: PropTypes.bool
  render() {
    const {field, placeholder, disabled} = this.props;
    return (
