Looking in the [react-form-validator-core]( doc here you can see an example of the ref that they are using.
`ref={(r) => { this.input = r; }}`
This syntax usage of ref in the Class components in React will bind the DOM element to a class property.
In functional components, you can use the `useRef` hook that will allow you to get the same result. [see official react doc](
So you can try something like this (I didn't test it)
<!-- begin snippet: js hide: false console: true babel: false -->
<!-- language: lang-js -->
import React from 'react';
const Component = () => { const formRef = React.useRef();
return ( <ValidatorForm ref=formRef onSubmit={this.handleSubmit} > <FileValidator onChange={this.handleChange} name="file" type="file" value={file} validators={['isFile', 'maxFileSize:' + 1 * 1024 * 1024, 'allowedExtensions:image/png,image/jpeg']} errorMessages={['File is not valid', 'Size must not exceed 1MB', 'Only png and jpeg']} /> <button type="submit">submit</button> </ValidatorForm> ); }
<!-- language: lang-html -->
<script src=""></script> <script src=""></script>

<!-- end snippet -->

That's [*property spread notation*][1]. It was added in ES2018 (spread for arrays/iterables was earlier, ES2015), but it's been supported in React projects for a long time via transpilation (as "[JSX spread attributes][2]" even though you could do it elsewhere, too, not just attributes).
`{...this.props}` *spreads out* the "own" enumerable properties in `props` as discrete properties on the `Modal` element you're creating. For instance, if `this.props` contained `a: 1` and `b: 2`, then
<Modal {...this.props} title='Modal heading' animation={false}>
would be the same as
<Modal a={this.props.a} b={this.props.b} title='Modal heading' animation={false}>
But it's dynamic, so whatever "own" properties are in `props` are included.
Since `children` is an "own" property in `props`, spread will include it. So if the component where this appears had child elements, they'll be passed on to `Modal`. Putting child elements between the opening tag and closing tags is just syntactic sugar&nbsp;&mdash; the good kind&nbsp;&mdash; for putting a `children` property in the opening tag. Example:
<!-- begin snippet: js hide: true console: true babel: true -->
<!-- language: lang-js -->
class Example extends React.Component { render() { const { className, children } = this.props; return ( <div className={className}> {children} </div> ); } } ReactDOM.render( [ <Example className="first"> <span>Child in first</span> </Example>, <Example className="second" children={<span>Child in second</span>} /> ], document.getElementById("root") );
<!-- language: lang-css -->
.first { color: green; } .second { color: blue; }
<!-- language: lang-html -->
<div id="root"></div>
<script src=""></script> <script src=""></script>
<!-- end snippet -->
Spread notation is handy not only for that use case, but for creating a new object with most (or all) of the properties of an existing object&nbsp;&mdash; which comes up a lot when you're updating state, since you can't modify state directly:
this.setState(prevState => { return {foo: {, a: "updated"}}; });
That replaces `` with a new object with all the same properties as `foo` except the `a` property, which becomes `"updated"`:
<!-- begin snippet: js hide: true console: true babel: false -->
<!-- language: lang-js -->
const obj = { foo: { a: 1, b: 2, c: 3 } }; console.log("original",; // Creates a NEW object and assigns it to `` = {, a: "updated"}; console.log("updated",;

<!-- language: lang-css -->
.as-console-wrapper { max-height: 100% !important; }
<!-- end snippet -->
