React Context API for hook form

useFormContext: Function

This custom hook allows you to access the form context. useFormContext is intended to be used in deeply nested structures, where it would become inconvenient to pass the context as a prop.


This hook will return all the useForm return methods and props.

const methods = useForm()
<FormProvider {...methods} /> // all the useForm return props
const methods = useFormContext() // retrieve those props


You need to wrap your form with the FormProvider component for useFormContext to work properly.


import React from "react";
import { useForm, FormProvider, useFormContext } from "react-hook-form";

export default function App() {
  const methods = useForm();
  const onSubmit = data => console.log(data);

  return (
    <FormProvider {...methods} > // pass all methods into the context
      <form onSubmit={methods.handleSubmit(onSubmit)}>
        <NestedInput />
        <input type="submit" />

function NestedInput() {
  const { register } = useFormContext(); // retrieve all hook methods
  return <input {...register("test")} />;
