Buttons allow users to take actions, and make choices, with a single tap. Material UI for React has this component available for us and it is very easy to integrate. We can use the Button component in ReactJS using the following approach.

Creating React Application And Installing Module:

Step 1: Create a React application using the following command:

npx create-react-app foldername

Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. foldername, move to it using the following command:

cd foldername

Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the material-ui modules using the following command:

npm install @mui/material

Project Structure: It will look like the following.
