useRouteMatch Hooks

If you're looking for a way to perform route matching and access the matched route parameters or information, you can use the useRouteMatch hook provided by React Router. The useRouteMatch hook allows you to match the current URL against a specified route pattern and provides access to the matched information.

Here's an example of how to use the useRouteMatch hook:

In this example, the useRouteMatch hook from react-router-dom is used to match the current URL against the route pattern '/users/:userId'. If the current URL matches the pattern, the match object will contain the matched information, including the params object with the route parameters.

You can check if the route matches by evaluating the match object. If there is no match, you can handle it accordingly, such as rendering an appropriate message or component.

The match.params object provides access to the route parameters. In this case, you can access the userId parameter with params.userId and use it within your component.

Please note that the actual route pattern and logic may vary based on your specific routing configuration and requirements. Make sure you have set up your routing correctly using a library like React Router or reach-router.


The useRouteMatch hook is designed to be used within a functional component. If you need to access route matching outside of a component, you may consider using the matchPath function from React Router.

Yes, you can use useRouteMatch multiple times within a component to match different paths and access their respective match objects.

The useRouteMatch hook returns a match object that contains properties related to the current route. These properties include path, url, isExact, and params.
