I need to find a solution to be able to combine together the functionality of react router with the material ui components.

For instance, I've this scenario: a router and a button. What I tried to do it is to mix them together, and restyle them.

So from a simple link

<Link className={this.getClass(this.props.type)} to={`${url}`} title={name}>{name}</Link>

I tried to create a material ui button as the following

<Link className={this.getClass(this.props.type)} to={`${url}`} title={name}>
  <FlatButton label={name} />
</Link>

but I have the following error and Javascript breaks

invariant.js?4599:38Uncaught Invariant Violation: addComponentAsRefTo(...): Only a ReactOwner can have refs. You might be adding a ref to a component that was not created inside a component's render method, or you have multiple copies of React loaded (details: https://gist.github.com/jimfb/4faa6cbfb1ef476bd105).

Do you have any idea how to manage this situation? Thank you in advance and if you need more information let me know

The way to do in new versions is:

import { Link } from 'react-router-dom';

// ... some code

render(){
    return (
        <Button component={Link} to={'/my_route'}>My button</Button>
    );
}

Look at this thread or this question

This works for me:

<FlatButton label="Details" 
            containerElement={<Link to="/coder-details" />} 
            linkButton={true} />

See https://github.com/callemall/material-ui/issues/850

<Button
          size="large"
          color="primary"
          onClick={() => {}}
          variant="outlined"
          component={RouterLink}
          to={{
            pathname: `enter your path name`,
          }}
        >
          Click Here
        </Button>

You can try this way when using typescript:

import { NavLink as RouterLink } from "react-router-dom";
import {
  Button,
  Collapse,
  ListItem,
  makeStyles,
  ListItemIcon,
  ListItemText,
} from "@material-ui/core";

type NavItemProps = {
  className?: string;
  depth: number;
  href?: string;
  icon?: any;
  info?: any;
  open?: boolean;
  title: string;
};

const NavItem: React.SFC<NavItemProps> = ({

const CustomLink = React.forwardRef((props: any, ref: any) => (
    <NavLink
      {...props}
      style={style}
      to={href}
      exact
      ref={ref}
      activeClassName={classes.active}
    />
  ));
  return (
    <ListItem
      className={clsx(classes.buttonLeaf, `depth-${depth}`)}
      disableGutters
      style={style}
      key={title}
      button
      component={CustomLink}
      {...rest}
    >
      <ListItemIcon>
        {Icon && <Icon className={classes.icon} size="20" />}
      </ListItemIcon>
      <ListItemText primary={title} className={classes.title} />
    </ListItem>
  );
})
