Jammming Project: setState()

https://www.codecademy.com/paths/full-stack-engineer-career-path/tracks/fscp-react-part-ii/modules/fecp-challenge

export default class SearchBar extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);
        ...
    }
    render() {
        return (
        ...
        )
    }
    ...
    handleTermChange(event) {
        this.setState({term: event.target.value})
    }

The term property was never defined in the constructor. So you can just create the property with setState()? Can’t find any answers to this with Google.

Maybe you should try with value instead.
