Javascript Question

this.props.history is deprecated (react-router)

I was trying to programatically navigate to a different page like so

this.props.history.push('/new-path');
it worked, but I got a deprecation warning in console saying:

Warning: [react-router] props.history and context.history are deprecated. Please use context.router.
more about it here https://github.com/reactjs/react-router/blob/master/upgrade-guides/v2.0.0.md#changes-to-thiscontext




Afterwards I tried to use this new method like so
this.context.router.push('/new-path')
but this doesn't seem to be the right approach.

Answer

Maybe you did forget to define the router as contextType? Assuming you have a component like:

class YourComponent extends React.Component {
      render() {
        return <div></div>;
      }
 }

You have to define the contextTypes as follows right beneath your component:

YourComponent.contextTypes = {
  router: React.PropTypes.object.isRequired
};
