    handleChnage = (event) => {
        this.setState({
            [event.target.name]: event.target.value
        })
    }
    handleSubmit = (event) => {
        // console.log('hi');
        event.preventDefault();
        this.setState({
            loading: true
        });
        const userData = {
            email: this.state.email,
            password: this.state.password
        }
        axios.post('/login', userData)
            .then((res) => {
                //console.log(res.data)
                this.setState({
                    loading: false
                });
                this.props.history.push('/');
            })
            .catch((err) => {
                console.log(err.response.data)
               // let errors  ={email:'',password:''}
                this.setState({
                    //errors11: err.response.data.errors,
                    errors : err.response.data.errors,
                    // error2:err.response.data,
                    loading: false
                })
            })
    }
    render() {
        const { classes } = this.props;
        const { errors, loading,} = this.state;
        return (
            <Grid container className={classes.form}>
                <Grid item sm />
                <Grid item sm >
                    <img src={AppIcon} alt="app cion" className={classes.image} />
                    <Typography variant="h2" className={classes.pagetitle}>Login</Typography>
                    <form noValidate onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>
                        <TextField id="email" name="email" type="email" label="Email" className={classes.textfeild}
                            helperText={errors.email} error={errors.email ? true : false} value={this.state.email} onChange={this.handleChnage} fullWidth />
                        <TextField id="password" name="password" type="password" label="Password" className={classes.textfeild}
                            helperText={errors.password} error={errors.password ? true : false} value={this.state.password} onChange={this.handleChnage} fullWidth />
                        {errors.general &&(
                            <Typography variant="body2" className={classes.customerror}>
                                {errors.general}
                            </Typography>
                        )}
                        <Button type="submit" variant="contained" color="primary" className={classes.button}>Login </Button>
                    </form>
                </Grid>
                <Grid item sm />
            </Grid>
        )
    }
}

login.propTypes = {
    classes: PropTypes.object.isRequired
}

export default withStyles(styles)(login);

my problem is in this code if i send email and password wrong

93 | helperText={errors.email} error={errors.email ? true : false} value={this.state.email} onChange={this.handleChnage} fullWidth

this line i got error and this is my console log

general: "email or password not match"

how can i handle this kind of errors ?

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

Looking at the code of your request handling and the responses I can see that error responses are not consistent in how it handles errors. I think you should think about fixing the response to be consistent. I would try to replace line in error handling of submit

errors : err.response.data.errors,

with something that would create structure for general erros: f.e.

errors : {...err.response.data.errors, general: err.response.data.general}

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
