Next.js, Strapi – Fetch response is empty

I have nextjs frontend that fetch data from strapi backend. Problem is that data is empty even if i can see on strapi dev logs that request has been made.

This is next.js code

import { useRouter } from "next/router";
import React, { useEffect } from "react";

const Room = () => {
  const router = useRouter();
  let fetchData;

  useEffect(() => {
    if (router.asPath !== router.route) {
      getDataNames();
    }
  }, [router]);

  const getDataNames = () => {
    try {
      fetch("http://localhost:1337/rooms?_id=" + router.query.id)
        .then((response) => response.json())
        .then((data) => (fetchData = data));
      console.log(fetchData);
    } catch (e) {
      console.error(e);
    }
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <p>{router.query.id}</p>
      <p>{fetchData}</p>
    </div>
  );
};

export default Room;

And here is the strapi log

[2021-02-23T14:06:20.845Z] debug GET /rooms?_id=6034aac1ba63472e9878ed25 (27 ms) 200

But I don’t know why is data empty. Truth is that the response consist of base64 long text but I am not sure if that can cause the problem. Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer

const Room = () => {
  const router = useRouter();
  //let fetchData;
  const [fetchData, setFetchData] = React.useState('');
  useEffect(() => {
    if (router.asPath !== router.route) {
      getDataNames();
    }
  }, [router]);

  const getDataNames = () => {
    try {
      fetch("http://localhost:1337/rooms?_id=" + router.query.id)
        .then((response) => response.json())
        .then((data) => { setFetchData(data); });
      console.log(fetchData);
    } catch (e) {
      console.error(e);
    }
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <p>{router.query.id}</p>
      <p>{fetchData}</p>
    </div>
  );
};

You can use useState hook for React state.
