Sometimes, you want to see a dump of some data in React, ideally in a pretty format. Here’s a little component that can help:

import React, { useState } from 'react'

interface Props { 
  title: string; 
  value: any; 
  expanded?: boolean 
}

const Dump: React.FC<Props> = ({ title, value, expanded = false }) => {
  const [isExpanded, setIsExpanded] = useState<boolean>(expanded)
  const toggleValues = () => setIsExpanded(!isExpanded)

  return (
    <div
      style={{
        backgroundColor: '#eee',
        fontSize: '12px',
        margin: '15px 0',
        padding: '10px',
      }}
    >
      <div
        style={{ alignItems: 'center', cursor: 'pointer', display: 'flex' }}
        onClick={toggleValues}
      >
        {title}
        <span style={{ color: '#393939', fontSize: '10px', marginLeft: '7px' }}>
          {isExpanded ? '▲' : '▼'}
        </span>
      </div>

      {isExpanded && (
        <pre style={{ marginTop: '10px' }}>
          {JSON.stringify(value, null, 2)}
        </pre>
      )}
    </div>
  )
}

export default Dump

Now, you can use it like this:

<Dump values={myFormState} title="formValues" />

If you want the dump data to be expanded by default, add the expanded attribute:

<Dump values={myFormState} title="formValues" expanded />

This should give you something like this:

import React, { useState } from 'react'

interface Props {
  title: string
  value: any
  expanded?: boolean
}

const Dump: React.FC<Props> = ({ title, value, expanded = false }) => {
  const [isExpanded, setIsExpanded] = useState<boolean>(expanded)
  const toggleValues = () => setIsExpanded(!isExpanded)

  return (
    <div className="bg-gray-100 text-sm mt-4 p-3">
      <div className="flex items-center cursor-pointer" onClick={toggleValues}>
        {title}
        <span className="text-gray-800 font-[10px] ml-1.5">
          {isExpanded ? '▲' : '▼'}
        </span>
      </div>

      {isExpanded && (
        <pre className="mt-2.5">{JSON.stringify(value, null, 2)}</pre>
      )}
    </div>
  )
}

export default Dump
