    Handle ref props with Higher Order Components

    When you wrap a component with a Higher Order Component, it becomes impossible to forward the ref prop down the component tree due to the special nature of the ref prop in React. In this lesson, we’ll see that problem in action with our Higher Order Component. We will pass the ref as an innerRef prop so that the Higher Order Component can re-assign the ref to the component that it is wrapping.
