#help Render a component React using Picture-in-Picture

Hello everyone, i have a doubt about, how to render a component in a new window in React, like a component Picture-in-Picture of Youtube. For example, i need that component stay on front of the page, because it is a videoconference, while the user write information on system, this window will show the videoconference without loose focus. This componente that shows the videoconference it's react-jitsi component. Anyone have some idea to help me?

I think articles on dev.to should be complete and informative… if you need help try Stack overflow?

Heya! I totally get what you're saying @jasonfb , but I think it is okay to ask for help on DEV, it's just that the majority of articles on DEV don't take this approach.

If someone wants to ask questions on DEV, I'd suggest:
a) posting under the #help tag as this tag is designated specifically for asking technical questions.
b) making it clear that you are asking a question in the title of your post. (For instance, perhaps this post could be retitled: "How do you render a component in React" or "Need help rendering React components")

To be clear, you've not done anything wrong here @bateradt , but you'll probably get better reception from folks if you set up your post so that it's clear you're not going to be offering information on how to render a component, but are hoping that someone can help with this.

No worries!

I see that you added the help tag to the title, but I was actually meaning just to add it as another tag, similar to how you added #react and #jitsi to the post.

I actually work as the Community Manager here at DEV and can add tags to posts. I'm going to go ahead and pop the help tag onto this one and hopefully we can get some answers for ya.

I'd still probs recommend changing the title to something like "How do you render a component in React" or "Need help rendering React components" this way people will have a clearer idea of what questions you're asking when going into your post.

I hope this helpful advice!
