React Desktop macOS SegmentedControl Component

  • Last Updated : 01 Jun, 2021

React Desktop is a popular library to bring the native desktop experience to the web. This library provides macOS and Windows OS components. A SegmentedControl component is a linear set of two or more segments where each of which functions as a mutually exclusive button. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the React Desktop macOS SegmentedControl Component.

SegmentedControl Props:

  • box: It is used to indicate whether the item is in a box or not.
  • height: It is used to set component height.
  • hidden: It is used to set the component visibility.
  • margin: It is used to set the outer margin of the component.
  • marginBottom: It is used to set the outer bottom margin of the component.
  • marginLeft: It is used to set the outer left margin of the component.
  • marginRight: It is used to set the outer right margin of the component.
  • marginTop: It is used to set the outer top margin of the component.
  • width: It is used to set components width.

SegmentedControlItem Props:

  • title: It is used to set the title for the item.
  • onSelect: It is a callback function that is triggered on select of an item.
  • selected: It is used to indicate whether the item is selected or not.

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 required module using the following command:

    npm install react-desktop

export default function App() {
  // Our State object
  const [currentSelection, setCurrentSelection] = useState(1)
  return (
    <div style={{
      display: 'block', width: 700, paddingLeft: 30
      <h4>React-Desktop macOS SegmentedControl Component</h4>
      <SegmentedControl box>
          title={"TAB 1"}
          selected={currentSelection === 1}
          onSelect={() => setCurrentSelection(1)}
          Sample Text 1
          title={"TAB 2"}
          selected={currentSelection === 2}
          onSelect={() => setCurrentSelection(2)}
          Sample Text 2
