React page changes do not display

I am making changed to a React .jsx page and the changes do now show up when publishing the site. Sometimes the changes show up when running the code locally but it's sporadic.
It seems to be a caching issue.  I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this problem.

We will need to know a lot more about the problem than what you have given us.

Some code showing the relevant bits that are involved in the mystery (along with line number references as to where we should be looking)
Expected output
Actual output

A test page showing the problem would be first prize.

Right now it is a bit too vague to nail this one down.

JSX files need to be transpiled first which generates the .JS files and which is actually executed and rendered. If you need your changes to reflect as soon as you made changes then you probably need a watcher from node.js which keep eye on the file changes and transpile the file for you on adhoc basis.

In your case it seems the watcher had some issue, try running a watcher on the folder where the files are kept, so that it will do it automatically for you.

for example:  
>node tsc -- -w

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the inputs.  I realized I didn't give enough info.  I'm new to using React.  I did figure this one out.
I wasn't setting the state for the object in question.
