Any better way to get refs in ReactTransitionGroup? #8734

I've found I can get children's refs in ReactTransitionGroup. Just like

<TransitionGroup ref={(ref) => this._refs = ref}>

Then I can get <div>Hello</div> by this._refs.refs['.$.0']

It's quite ugly.

Is there any better way?

This is an implementation detail and is not officially supported. As far as I know there is currently no better way (you could also get a top-level ref and then use DOM API to get a child).

We could work around it by switching to callback refs internally. However we don't plan to change the TransitionGroup code anymore in this repository. We've been moving it to so please file new feature requests and bug reports there. Thanks!
