Typescript styled-component error: "Type '{ children: string; }' has no properties in common with type 'IntrinsicAttributes'."

Issue

Getting a typescript error on my styled-component

Type ‘{ children: string; }’ has no properties in common with type ‘IntrinsicAttributes’.ts(2559)

import React from 'react'

import { NotificationSuccess, NotificationError } from '../../styles'

interface IProps {
  error?: boolean;
  message: string;
}

export const Notification = (props: IProps) => {
  const Note = () => props.error ? NotificationError : NotificationSuccess;
  // Error happens on <Note>
  return (<Note>{props.message}</Note>);
}

And the styles:

import styled from 'styled-components';

export const NotificationDiv = styled.div`
  z-index: 11;
  position: fixed;
  left: 50%;
  margin-left: -160px;
  top: 1rem;
  padding: 1.5rem;
  width: 320px;
  height: auto;
  text-align: center;
  color: ${props => props.theme.offWhite};
  border-radius: 5px;
  cursor: pointer;
`

export const NotificationSuccess = styled(NotificationDiv)`
  background: ${props => props.theme.green};
`

export const NotificationError = styled(NotificationDiv)`
  background: ${props => props.theme.red};
`

I found this answer here, and I did upgrade my package.json to the following, but that still didn’t help:

Why this wrapped styled-component errors "has no properties in common with"

Solution

<Note>{props.message}</Note> is same as Note({ children: props.message }) so typescript is complaining that function Note doesn’t take any arguments and function type doesn’t match. It has nothing to do with styled-components.

(IntrinsicAttributes is probably the default interface you extend when you write a functional component. Or something like that idk xD)

My best guess is you want const Note = props.error ? NotificationError : NotificationSuccess; instead of what you have written.

PS. I might be wrong but I’m mostly sure this is the case.
