React.js library is all about splitting the app into several components. Each Component has its own lifecycle. React provides us some in-built methods that we can override at particular stages in the life-cycle of the component.

In this article, we will know how to use isElementOfType() method. The isElementOfType() method return true if an element is any react element whose type is of a React componentClass.

import React from 'react';
import { isElementOfType } from 'react-dom/test-utils';
// Defining our App Component
const App = () => {
// Function to demonstrate isElementOfType() method
function func(){
   var element = document.getElementById('id')
   var a = isElementOfType(element);
   console.log("The Following is an element "
        + "is of a react componentClass :", a);
// Returning our JSX code
return <>
    <div id='el'>
        <button onClick={func}>Click Here !!</button>
// Exporting your Default App Component
export default App
