What is an event in ReactJS?

In ReactJS, events are the triggered reactions to certain actions like mouse hover, mouse click, key press, etc. Handling these events are similar to handling events in DOM elements. But there are some syntactical differences like:

  1. Events are named using camel case instead of just using the lowercase.
  2. Events are passed as functions instead of strings.

The argument of the event contains a set of properties, which are specific to that event. Each event type contains its own properties and behavior which can be accessed by its event handler only.
