Can’t use useReducer Hook with in a Typescript Next Js project


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Gourav Kumar

I am very new to Typescript and I am here trying to use the useReducer hook with Typescript.

This is my code:

import { useReducer, useContext, createContext } from "react"
import type { ReactNode } from "react"

const defaultState = { count: 0}

const CounterContext = createContext(undefined)

export type Action = 'increment' | 'decrement'
export type State = typeof defaultState
export type Dispatch = (action: Action) => void

const counterReducer = (state: State, action: Action) => {
    switch(action) {
        case 'increment': return state.count = state.count + 1
        case 'decrement': return state.count = state.count - 1
        default: state

const CounterProvider = ({children}: {children: ReactNode}) => {
    const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(counterReducer,defaultState)

I am getting an error in this line:

const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(counterReducer,defaultState)

Error is:

    No overload matches this call.
  Overload 1 of 5, '(reducer: ReducerWithoutAction<any>, initializerArg: any, initializer?: undefined): [any, DispatchWithoutAction]', gave the following error.
    Argument of type '(state: State, action: Action) => number | undefined' is not assignable to parameter of type 'ReducerWithoutAction<any>'.
  Overload 2 of 5, '(reducer: (state: { count: number; }, action: Action) => number | undefined, initialState: never, initializer?: undefined): [never, Dispatch<Action>]', gave the following error.
    Argument of type '{ count: number; }' is not assignable to parameter of type 'never'.

Can you guys please tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.
