Change the visibility of a react component

Hi the following code should modify the visibility of a react component depending on whether or not a button is clicked, this when a button is clicked the first element must disappear and I have to appear the second, but this does not happen what is this due to?

React code:

import React from "react";
import styled from "styled-components";
import image from "../../assets/img/calc.png";
import CalculatorContainer from "./CalculatorDraggable/index";

class DraggableCalculator extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = { isCalculatorVisible: false };
  enable() {
    console.log("Make calculator visibile");
      isCalculatorVisible: true,
  render() {
    return (
        {this.state.isCalculatorVisible == true ? (
          <CalculatorContainer />
        ) : (
        <Container onClick={this.enable}>
            style={{ marginLeft: 20 }}

export default DraggableCalculator;

const Container = styled.div`
  border-radius: 25px;
  border: 2px solid #73ad21;
  padding: 20px;
  width: 200px;
  height: 200px;

  /* background-color: var(--cLight2);
  border: 5px solid var(--cMain); */
  border-radius: 50%;
  margin-left: auto;
  margin-top: 30px;
  margin-right: auto;
  cursor: pointer;

  @media only screen and (min-device-width: 768px) and (max-device-width: 1024px) and (orientation: landscape) {
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;

  img {
    max-width: 100%;
    max-height: 100%;

>Solution :

Your code is not working because "this" is undefined inside the enable() function. It so because React component (DraggableCalculator, in your case) does not auto-bind its methods to itself.

Hence you have to bind any method yourself inside the constructor, like this for your case:

constructor(props) {
    this.state = { isCalculatorVisible: false };

    this.enable = this.enable.bind(this);
