Getting the component name

Hi, I’m trying to get a component’s name and insert it as a class name. A google search tells me I should use this.constructor.name, but that doesn’t seem to work here.

Eg:

function OrderLineItems(props) {
    return (
        <section className={this.constructor.name}>
        </section>
    )
}

Does anyone have a solution for this?

I believe the {this.constructor.name} method would only work with a class component and you have a functional component there.

The following works

function OrderLineItems(props) {
    return (
        <section className={OrderLineItems.name}>
        </section>
    )
}

Not necessarily ideal as you might have been trying to avoid referencing the function name.
