Renders a password input field with a reveal button.

  • Use the useState() hook to create the shown state variable and set its value to false.
  • When the <button> is clicked, execute setShown, toggling the type of the <input> between 'text' and 'password'.
const PasswordRevealer = ({ value }) => {
  const [shown, setShown] = React.useState(false);
  return (
    <>
      <input type={shown ? 'text' : 'password'} value={value} />
      <button onClick={() => setShown(!shown)}>Show/Hide</button>
    </>
  );
};
ReactDOM.render(<PasswordRevealer />, document.getElementById('root'));
