Instructor: 0:00 I have this button here and this button is already a styled component. As you can see here, it's a styled.button.
0:06 Let's say that I want to add an A, a link and say a.href, and we can just add https://global.com. It doesn't really matter what's written there, but let me just fix it. Now, let's type Google and close this A. This A does not look good. Let's just be honest about it.
0:29 What if we could reuse the button styles, but use it as an A. We want the button styles. I can just come here and say, "OK, cool. I want this to be a button." The problem is that hrefs don't work. It makes sense. That's how buttons work.
0:44 We don't want to add this on an on click. There is a prop called as, which we can pass to any styled component that will basically reassign the HTML element. In this case, it's a button, but this part can be actually reassigned.
0:58 If I come here and I say as and I add the HTML button at HTML component I want to replace it with, like this case A, this actually becomes a button. You can see that the styles are the same. We just have the sticks underlined, which is fixable in both by just adding text decoration and adding none.
1:20 Now we have a completely working A as you can see and we have a button that doesn't go anywhere. This is how you can reassign HTML elements in styled components.
