Exercise - Add a component


In this exercise, you add a Razor component to the home page of your app.

Add the Counter component to the Home page

  1. Open the Components/Pages/Home.razor file.

  2. Add a Counter component to the page by adding a <Counter /> element at the end of the Home.razor file.

    @page "/"
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
    Welcome to your new app.
    <Counter />
  3. Apply the change by restarting the app or using hot reload. The Counter component shows up on the home page.

Modify a component

Define a parameter on the Counter component to specify how much it increments with every button click.

  1. Add a public property for IncrementAmount with a [Parameter] attribute.

  2. Change the IncrementCount method to use the IncrementAmount value when incrementing the value of currentCount.

    The updated code in Counter.razor should look like this:

    @page "/counter"
    @rendermode InteractiveServer
    <p role="status">Current count: @currentCount</p>
    <button class="btn btn-primary" @onclick="IncrementCount">Click me</button>
    @code {
        private int currentCount = 0;
        public int IncrementAmount { get; set; } = 1;
        private void IncrementCount()
            currentCount += IncrementAmount;
  3. In Home.razor, update the <Counter /> element to add an IncrementAmount attribute that changes the increment amount to 10, as shown by the last line in the following code:

    @page "/"
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
    Welcome to your new app.
    <Counter IncrementAmount="10" />
  4. Apply the changes to the running app.

    The Home component now has its own counter that increments by 10 each time the Click me button is selected, as shown in the following image.

    The Counter component at /counter continues to increment by one.
