How to Build The Demographic Form

Let's learn how to render and implement a component in a stateless LiveView.

The first part of the survey is the demographic section, and we’ll wrap up that section in a component. First, we’ll review how to implement and render a stateless component. We’ll build a stateless component and render it within the SurveyLive LiveView. Then, we’ll dive into the component’s lifecycle. We’ll set the necessary component state and use it to render the form for creating a demographic.

Let’s do a quick refresher. Remember, we’ll render a component with live_component/3 with a socket, the component module, and some assigns. A component is stateless if it doesn’t have an :id key in assigns. That means the component can be pretty simple, often with nothing more than a update/2 function and a template or a render.
