import Brand1img from "../images/brand1.png";
import Airbnbimg from "../images/Airbnb.png";
import Microsoft from "../images/microsoft.png";
import { Row, Col } from "react-bootstrap";

function Carouselx() {
  const [index, setIndex] = useState(0);

  const handleSelect = (selectedIndex, e) => {
    console.log(selectedIndex, "e=>", e);
    setIndex(selectedIndex);
  };

  const isSlide = (slide) => {
    console.log("slide no => " + slide);
    console.log(this);
  };

Answer

You could use useState to get its refs (also useRef but there’ll be a lot more inconveniences potentially).

const [btn1, setBtn1] = useState();
const [btn2, setBtn2] = useState();
const [btn3, setBtn3] = useState();

...

<div ref={setBtn1} className="indicator-btn indicator-btn1"></div>
<div ref={setBtn2} className="indicator-btn indicator-btn2"></div>
<div ref={setBtn3} className="indicator-btn indicator-btn3"></div>

At some point (after 1st rendering) you’ll have btn1, btn2, btn3 as button elements. If you want to use it, assumingly imperatively, you could useEffect

useEffect(() => {
  if (!btn1 || !btn2 || !btn3) return;
  // do something with these refs i.e. make them jquery! $(btn1)
}, [btn1, btn2, btn3]);
