Error: Cannot read property 'State' of undefined

Asked by At

enter image description here The error from the debugger and the screen

I created a blog post from local api with the aim of clicking on the "read more" button to navigate to retrieving other remaining items based on the id. However, I made use of navigation but it gave an error of "Cannot read property 'state' of undefined.

import React, {Component} from 'react';
import { StyleSheet, Text, View} from 'react-native';
import Post from './components/Post';
import PostSingle from './components/PostSingle';
import { createStackNavigator, createAppContainer } from 'react-navigation';

const RootStack = createStackNavigator(
  {
    PostScreen: { screen: Post},
    PostSingleScreen:{screen: PostSingle},

  }
);

const AppNavigator = createAppContainer(RootStack);
export default class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
  };
  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <AppNavigator/>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

Post.js The screen loads to POST from which a read more button is pressed to trigger PostSingle

    ScrollView, 
    StyleSheet,

export default class Post extends Component{
    constructor(props){
        super(props);
        this.state = {
            posts: []
        }
    }
     readMore = (id) => {
         this.setState({ id: id})
         this.props.navigation.navigate('PostSingleScreen')
     } 

    componentDidMount(){
        axios.get(`http://localhost/rest_api_myblog/api/post/read.php`)
        //.then(json => console.log(json.data.data[0].id))
