React app context state update does not allow navigation


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Cheesus

When this function is called the app’s context should be updated and then the user redirected, however navigate("/") is never called. Is it because appState.setUser(user) triggers some kind of refresh ? If so how can i fix this ?

Here’s the relevant code :

    const appState = useContext(AppStateContext);

    function register() {
    APIFetcher.register(name, email, role, password)
        .then((user) => {
        .catch((error) => {
