Way to determine checkbox checked in react (useState)

This is my first time to develop a react application. I tried to implement checkboxes in each row of a table and check which of the rows are selected.

I used useState hook to make checked and onChange events, but seems the values are not refreshing when I check then uncheck the checkbox.

I would like to ask how to add a logic to remove the unticked values on the hooks.

Checkbox A- Checked
Checkbox B- Checked
CheckedMap- A,B

Checkbox B- Unchecked
CheckedMap- A,B // Unticked Checkbox B is also stored in CheckedMap

Thank you for your help.

export default function({ infinite }) {
  const [checkedMap, setCheckedMap] = useState(new Map());

const handleCheckedChange = transaction_seq => {
    let modifiedMap = checkedMap;
    modifiedMap.set(transaction_seq, !checkedMap.get(transaction_seq));

const columns = [
      Header: "Transaction(s)",
      className: "left",
      columns: [
          id: "checkbox",
          accessor: "checkbox",
          Cell: ({ row }) => {
            return (
                onChange={() =>

  1. You can check the check status in map and then decide whether to set the value or delete it

    const handleCheckedChange = transaction_seq => {
        let modifiedMap = checkedMap;
        if(checkedMap.get(transaction_seq)) {
        } else {
            modifiedMap.set(transaction_seq, true);
  2. This is the way how to use controlled checkbox with react useState hook.

    const { useState } = React; // --> for inline use
    // import React, { useState } from 'react';  // --> for real project
    const App = () => {
      const [checked, setChecked] = useState(false)
      const handleClick = () => setChecked(!checked)
      return <input onClick={handleClick} checked={checked} type="checkbox" />
    ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'))

    <div id="root"></div>
