  state = {
    googleApiLoaded: false,
    googleApiError: false,
    result: null,

  onGoogleApiLoaded = () => {
    this.setState({ googleApiLoaded: true });

  onGoogleApiError = error => {
    this.setState({ googleApiError: true });

  onSelect = result => {

  render() {
    const { googleApiLoaded, googleApiError } = this.state;
    return (
          ? <Script
          /> : null}
          ? <GooglePlaces onSelect={this.onSelect} />
          : null}
          ? <div>An error occured while loading the Google Places API</div>
          : null}

export default SetStateExample;
