UI not updating after successful Document.remove()


#1

Hi Guys,

Need help on this, I don’t know why the UI doesn’t update after successful document remove via Meteor.call()

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import DocumentItem from './document_item'
import TableDocItems from './table_doc_items'

class Home extends Component {
  constructor (props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = {
      docItems: []
    }
  }

  componentDidMount () {
    this.getDocItems()
  }

  handleDelete (id) {
    if (confirm('Are you sure?')) {
      Meteor.call('documents.remove', id, (err, result) => {        
        if (err) {
          console.log(err)
        } else {
          this.getDocItems()
        }
      })
    }
  }

  getDocItems () {
    const docItems = this.props.docs.map((doc, i) => {
      return (
        <DocumentItem
          key={i}
          doc={doc}
          handleDelete={this.handleDelete.bind(this, doc._id)} />
      )
    })

    this.setState({docItems})
  }

  render () {
    return (
      <div class='col-sm-12'>
        <h4>My Documents</h4>
        <TableDocItems docItems={this.state.docItems} />
      </div>
    )
  }
}

export default Home

TIA!

nvm guys, I’ve found the solution -componentWillReceiveProps(). It’s been a while since I’ve used react and I needed to do a react-basics refresh. :slight_smile:
