"React.Props<T> is now deprecated" warning in IDE when attempting to destructure props in AddPlayerForm

So I changed the AddPlayerForm class to destructure props (as suggested by the video). This only required changing the handleSubmit() method:

    handleSubmit = (e) => {
        const { addPlayer } = this.props;
        this.setState({ value: '' })

My IDE (WebStorm) then gave me the following warning:

React.Component<P,S>.props: Readonly<P> & Readonly<{children?: ReactNode}>

React.Props<T> is now deprecated, which means that the children property is not available on P by default, even though you can always pass children as variadic arguments to createElement. In the future, if we can define its call signature conditionally on the existence of children in P, then we should remove this.


Did I do anything wrong? Was there a better way to do this?
