React Rating Component


A React star rating component allows users to rate and provide feedback on content or products by selecting a specified number of stars, typically ranging from one to five, representing their level of satisfaction or preference.

Other frameworks

CoreUI components are available as native Angular, Bootstrap (Vanilla JS), and Vue components. To learn more please visit the following pages.

How to use React Rating Component.#

Embed the Rating component in your React application like this:

<CRating value={3} />

Allow clear#

Enable users to clear their selected rating by clicking on the current rating again. This functionality is activated by setting allowClear boolean property.

<CRating allowClear value={3} />

This allows the selected rating to be deselected, effectively resetting the rating to a state where no value is selected.


Our React Rating component allows users to assign and reset a star rating within a user interface. In the example below, we use the CButton component to clear the selected value by passing null.

const [currentValue, seCurrentValue] = useState(3)
return (
<div className="d-flex align-items-center">
<CRating onChange={(value) => seCurrentValue(value)} value={currentValue} />
<CButton className="ms-3" color="primary" onClick={() => seCurrentValue(null)}>reset</CButton>

Read only#

Set the React rating component to read-only by adding readOnly property. This disables interaction, preventing users from changing the displayed rating value.

<CRating readOnly value={3} />


Add the disabled boolean property to give it a grayed out appearance, remove pointer events, and prevent focusing.

<CRating disabled value={3} />


Enable descriptive text on hover by adding tooltips prop. This provides immediate feedback or guidance as the user interacts with the rating items.

<CRating tooltips value={3} />

For custom messages, provide an array of labels corresponding to each rating value to enhance the user's understanding of each rating level.

<CRating tooltips={['Very bad', 'Bad', 'Meh', 'Good', 'Very good']} value={3} />


Larger or smaller react rating component? Add size="lg" or size="sm" for additional sizes.

<CRating size="sm" value={3} />
<CRating value={3} />
<CRating size="lg" value={3} />


Adjust the granularity of the Rating component by setting precision prop. This attribute allows for fractional ratings, such as quarter values, to provide more precise feedback.

<CRating precision={0.25} value={3} />

Number of items#

Control the total number of rating items displayed by using itemCount property. You can create a React rating component with a custom scale, be it larger for detailed assessments or smaller for simplicity.

<CRating itemCount={20} value={5} />
<CRating itemCount={3} value={1} />

Custom icons#

Customize the React rating component with your choice of SVG icons by assigning new values to the activeIcon and icon properties in the JavaScript options. This allows for a unique look tailored to the design language of your site or application.

The Rating component can be customized with either SVG or font icons, allowing for visual alignment with your application's design. You can specify different icons for each rating value to enhance user interaction.

In the example below, we demonstrate how to set custom icons using SVG, allowing for detailed customization of the visual elements within the Rating component.

activeIcon={<CIcon icon={cisStar} customClassName=" " />}
icon={<CIcon icon={cilStar} customClassName=" " />}

In the example below, we use font icons from the CoreUI Icons set. In the activeIcon configuration, we also apply the utility class text-danger to change the icon's color to red when it is active.

activeIcon={<CIcon icon={cilHeart} customClassName="text-danger" />}
icon={<CIcon icon={cilHeart} customClassName=" " />}

For a more dynamic experience, define different icons for each rating value, enhancing the visual feedback:

const icons = {
1: <CIcon icon={cilMoodVeryBad} customClassName=" " />,
2: <CIcon icon={cilMoodBad} customClassName=" " />,
3: <CIcon icon={cilMeh} customClassName=" " />,
4: <CIcon icon={cilMoodGood} customClassName=" " />,
5: <CIcon icon={cilMoodVeryGood} customClassName=" " />,
const activeIcons = {
1: <CIcon icon={cilMoodVeryBad} customClassName="text-danger-emphasis" />,
2: <CIcon icon={cilMoodBad} customClassName="text-danger" />,
3: <CIcon icon={cilMeh} customClassName="text-warning" />,
4: <CIcon icon={cilMoodGood} customClassName="text-success" />,
5: <CIcon icon={cilMoodVeryGood} customClassName="text-success-emphasis" />,
return (
tooltips={['Very bad', 'Bad', 'Meh', 'Good', 'Very good']}

Custom feedback#

The React Rating component integrates interactive star ratings with dynamic textual feedback using other components from CoreUI. It enables users to select a rating that updates the display and label in real-time, enhancing the interactive experience. Hover effects provide immediate feedback on potential ratings before selection, ensuring an intuitive user interface.

3 / 5
const labels = {
1: 'Very bad',
2: 'Bad',
3: 'Meh',
4: 'Good',
5: 'Very good'
const [label, setLabel] = useState(labels[3])
const [currentValue, seCurrentValue] = useState(3)
return (
<div className="d-flex align-items-center">
<div className="text-body-secondary me-3">{currentValue} / 5</div>
onChange={(value) => seCurrentValue(value)}
onHover={(value) => setLabel(value ? labels[value] : labels[currentValue])}
{label && <CBadge className="ms-3" color="dark">{label}</CBadge>}


CSS variables#

React ratings use local CSS variables on .rating for enhanced real-time customization. Values for the CSS variables are set via Sass, so Sass customization is still supported, too.

--cui-rating-gap: #{$rating-gap};
--cui-rating-transition: #{$rating-transition};
--cui-rating-item-height: #{$rating-item-height};
--cui-rating-item-color: #{$rating-item-color};
--cui-rating-item-scale-transform: #{$rating-item-scale-transform};
--cui-rating-item-active-color: #{$rating-item-active-color};
--cui-rating-item-icon: #{escape-svg($rating-item-icon)};

How to use CSS variables#

const vars = {
'--my-css-var': 10,
'--my-another-css-var': 'red',
return <CRating style={vars}>...</CRating>
