How to detect when a image is loaded, that is provided via props, and change state in React?

Solution:

There are several ways to do this, but the simplest is to display the final image hidden, and then flip it to visible once it loads.

JSBin Demo

class Foo extends React.Component {
  constructor(){
    super();
    this.state = {loaded: false};
  }

  render(){
    return (
      <div>
        {this.state.loaded ? null :
          <div
            style={{
              background: 'red',
              height: '400px',
              width: '400px',
            }}
          />
        }
        <img
          style={this.state.loaded ? {} : {display: 'none'}}
          src={this.props.src}
          onLoad={() => this.setState({loaded: true})}
        />
      </div>
    );
  }
}

Same answer as Brigand’s accepted answer but with Hooks:

const Foo = ({ src }) => {
  const [loaded, setLoaded] = useState(false);

  return (
    <div>
      {loaded ? null : (
        <div
          style={{
            background: 'red',
            height: '400px',
            width: '400px'
          }}
        />
      )}
      <img
        style={loaded ? {} : { display: 'none' }}
        src={src}
        onLoad={() => setLoaded(true)}
      />
    </div>
  );
};

I want to strengthen you and add
For background-image

  constructor(){
    super();
    this.state = {loaded: false};
  }

  render(){
    return (
      <div>
        {this.state.loaded ? null :
          <div
            style={{
              background: 'red',
              height: '400px',
              width: '400px',
            }}
          />
        }
        <img
          style={{ display: 'none' }}
          src={this.props.src}
          onLoad={() => this.setState({loaded: true})}
        />
       <div 
         style={ {
                  background: `url(${this.props.src})`
                   ,display: this.state.loaded?'none':'block'
                }}
        />
      </div>
    );
  }
}```
