How to use href with onClick() in IonButton?

Issue

The below onClick() function works as intended without href. But when I add in the href, only the href seems to run, not the onClick() function. How do I both run the onClick() function and also send the user to a new page?

                <IonButton
                    color="primary"
                    onClick={() => {saveData()}}
                    href="/create/"
                >Save</IonButton>

Solution

you do not really want to use href use history

const history = useHistory();
<IonButton color="primary"
  onClick={(event) => { 
      event.preventDefault();
      saveData(); 
      history.push("/create")}}
> Save
</IonButton>
