    static getDerivedStateFromProps(propsstate) {
      return {color: props.color };

    changeColor = () => {
      this.setState({color: "blue"});

    render() {
      return (
        <h1>Your Color is {this.state.ecolor}</h1>
        <button type="button" onClick={this.changeColor}>Change this color</button>
  ReactDOM.render(<Header favcol="yellow"/>document.getElementById('root'));
