In this form, I will define the title, description, and price of a document. ere with the help of localStorage, the React form state won’t change after the page refresh. we will use the React life cycle methods to set the Form state in local storage.

Add the below file path at the top of App.js file inside src folder.
Create new component components/AddDocument.js and put below code inside it. In this component, we will see how to save data in localStorage using Life cycle methods.
