Using React Header Login Popup with UseHook

If you're building a web application with React, you might want to include a login popup in the header of your website. This is a great way to allow users to sign in quickly and easily, without having to navigate to a separate page. In this post, we'll show you how to create a login popup using React and the UseHook library.

What is UseHook?

UseHook is a library for React that makes it easy to manage state in your components. It provides a set of hooks that you can use to store and update data, without having to write a lot of boilerplate code. In this example, we'll use the useState hook, which allows us to create state variables and update them within our component.

The Code

    import React, { useState } from "react";

    function Header() {
        const [isOpen, setIsOpen] = useState(false);

        const togglePopup = () => {

        return (
                {isOpen && (

    export default Header;

In this code, we've created a functional component called Header. Inside this component, we use the useState hook to create a variable called isOpen, which we set to false by default. We also create a function called togglePopup, which toggles the value of isOpen between true and false.

In the render function, we create a navigation bar with some links and a button. When the user clicks on the button, we call the togglePopup function to open the login popup.

The login popup itself is contained within a div that's only displayed when isOpen is true. Inside this div, we create a form with inputs for the username and password, as well as a submit button.

Styling the Popup

If you want to style the popup, you can add some CSS to your stylesheet. Here's an example:

    .login-popup {
        position: absolute;
        top: 50%;
        left: 50%;
        transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
        background-color: #fff;
        padding: 20px;
        box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
        border-radius: 5px;

In this CSS, we're using absolute positioning to center the popup in the middle of the screen. We're also adding some padding and a box shadow to make it look more like a traditional popup.


Using React and UseHook, it's easy to create a login popup for your website's header. With a few lines of code, you can provide a convenient way for users to sign in without having to navigate to a separate page. By styling the popup with CSS, you can make it look great and fit in with the rest of your website's design.
