Uncaught TypeError: handleDrawerToggle is not a function
// Typescript
const App = () => {
  const [mobileOpen, setMobileOpen] = React.useState(false);
  const drawerWidth = 240;
  const handleDrawerToggle = () => {
    setMobileOpen(!mobileOpen);
  };
  return (
    <div>
      <Sample
        handleDrawerToggle={handleDrawerToggle}
        drawerWidth={drawerWidth}
      />
      {mobileOpen && <h1>hello</h1>}
    </div>
  );
};

const Sample = ( handleDrawerToggle:any, drawerWidth:any ) => {
  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleDrawerToggle} style={{ width: `${drawerWidth}` }}>
        Testv
      </button>
    </div>
  );
};

>Solution :

Rather than passing as any, you can be more specific and pass it as () => void. I would also advice to add a prop type.

For example, type SampleProps = { handleDrawerToggle: () => void; drawerWidth: number }

So something like

const Sample = ({ handleDrawerToggle, drawerWidth }: SampleProps) => {
  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleDrawerToggle} style={{ width: `${drawerWidth}px` }}>
        Testv
      </button>
    </div>
  );
};
