What's the TypeScript Type for the style Attribute in React?

The correct TypeScript type for the style attribute in React is:


To give you an example, let's consider the following React component:

import React, { FunctionComponent, CSSProperties } from 'react';

type Props = { styleRules: CSSProperties; };

const Button: FunctionComponent<Props> = ({ styleRules, children }) => (
    <button style={{ ...styleRules }}>{children}<button>

export default Button;

If the React.CSSProperties type is not available, make sure you have @types/react package installed, for example, like so:

npm install --save @types/react
