JavaScript Installing and Using ReactCSSTransitionGroup

6,346 Points

Console error: Warning: Unknown props `onExited`, `appear`, `enter`, `exit` on <li> tag.

I encountered the following error when I attempted to import the TransitionGroup component into the application:

Warning: Unknown props `onExited`, `appear`, `enter`, `exit` on <li> tag. Remove these props from the element. 
 in li (created by GuestList)
    in ul (created by TransitionGroup)
    in TransitionGroup (created by GuestList)
    in div (created by GuestList)
    in GuestList

My import statements are as follows:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';
import {CSSTransition, TransitionGroup } from 'react-transition-group';

My return() statement in App.js is as follows:

    return (
      <div className="guest-list">
        <h1>Guest List</h1>
        <input type="text" placeholder="Invite Someone" value={this.state.newName} onKeyDown={this.handleChange.bind(this)} />
        <TransitionGroup component ="ul">



Any solutions to this problem? As indicated in https://teamtreehouse.com/community/shouldnt-it-be-updated-to-reacttransitiongroup , I updated my imports to react-transition-group instead of react-css-transition- group as stated in these videos.

However, the error still persists. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi benjaminmosery,

The issue is happening because the <CSSTransitionGroup> component was removed in version 2. A <CSSTransition> component was added for use with the new <TransitionGroup> component to accomplish the same tasks. This workshop will need to be refreshed. In the meantime, I added updated notes and project files to each video.

Hope this helps. :)
