To pass a useRef as a parameter to a custom hook, you can simply include it as an argument when defining the custom hook. The custom hook will then have access to the useRef and can use it just like any other variable.

Here's an example of how you can achieve this:

import { useEffect, useRef } from 'react'; // Custom hook that uses the provided useRef const useCustomHook = (ref) => { useEffect(() => { // Access the ref and perform some action if (ref.current) { // Do something with the ref.current } }, [ref]); }; // Component that uses the custom hook const MyComponent = () => { const myRef = useRef(null); // Call the custom hook and pass the useRef as a parameter useCustomHook(myRef); return ( <div ref={myRef}> {/* Other content */} </div> ); }; export default MyComponent;

In this example, we have a custom hook called useCustomHook that takes a ref parameter. Inside the custom hook, we use useEffect to perform some action whenever the ref changes. The ref.current value is accessed inside the useCustomHook hook and used for the desired logic.

In the MyComponent, we create a useRef called myRef. Then, we pass myRef to the useCustomHook hook as a parameter. This allows useCustomHook to interact with myRef and perform its logic based on the current value of the ref.current.

Remember that you can use this pattern to pass any type of variable or value as a parameter to a custom hook. Whether it's a useRef, a state variable, or any other data, you can define your custom hook to accept the appropriate arguments and use them within the hook logic.
