A web application may offer two distinct user interfaces for various user types: an admin view and a user view. Admins and other privileged users who can administer and maintain the program are often the target audience for the admin view. On the other hand, the user view is usually made for frequent users of the program and may have a more straightforward interface with fewer options and capabilities. To toggle between user and admin view in react: 

  • First, create a piece of state in your component to track whether the user is an admin or not. This can be done by using ‘isAdmin’ property. 
  • isAdmin: This is typically a boolean value that indicates whether the current user is an administrator or not. 
  • Then, create a method that toggles the value of isAdmin between ‘true’ or ‘false.’ This method will be called when the user clicks a button to switch between user and admin views. 
  • Use a conditional statement to verify the value of the isAdmin state attribute in the component's render() function.  
  • Add a button to the component that calls the toggle method when it is clicked. This button can be used to switch between the user and admin views. 

For more information about toggling between the user and admin view in React, refer to the code given below.

In this solution we are using React library.


Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install the Node.js and React on your IDE(preferable Visual Studio Code).
  2. Create React Application using npx create-react-app foldername.
  3. cd foldername.
  4. Open the folder in IDE.
  5. Copy the code using "copy" button above and paste it in index.js file(remove the earlier code from index.js).
  6. Import React and ReactDOM.
  7. Open the terminal from IDE.
  8. npm start to run the file.

Note: Use 'getElementById('root')' instead of 'getElementById('example') in index.js file.

You can also refer this url 'DEMO' for getting the above output.
