[Reactjs] Reference children instance

The API this.props.children</code> is not the things when we want to reference the instance creating in render() function. The only way to reference it is adding ref property in render() function.

And, if it's dynamic, use React.cloneElement</code> to set ref. js render: function () { var refPages = this.state.pages.map(function(page) { return React.cloneElement(page, {ref: page.key, key: page.key}); }, this); return ( <div className="pageslider-container"> {refPages} </div> ); }
