Modal

The Modal component is a basic way to present content above an enclosing view.

Example

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import { Alert, Modal, StyleSheet, Text, Pressable, View } from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  const [modalVisible, setModalVisible] = useState(false);
  return (
    <View style={styles.centeredView}>
      <Modal
        animationType="slide"
        transparent={true}
        visible={modalVisible}
        onRequestClose={() => {
          Alert.alert('Modal has been closed.');
          setModalVisible(!modalVisible);
        }}>
        <View style={styles.centeredView}>
          <View style={styles.modalView}>
            <Text style={styles.modalText}>Hello World!</Text>
            <Pressable
              style={[styles.button, styles.buttonClose]}
              onPress={() => setModalVisible(!modalVisible)}>
              <Text style={styles.textStyle}>Hide Modal</Text>
            </Pressable>
          </View>
        </View>
      </Modal>
      <Pressable style={[styles.button, styles.buttonOpen]} onPress={() => setModalVisible(true)}>
        <Text style={styles.textStyle}>Show Modal</Text>
      </Pressable>
    </View>
  );
};

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  centeredView: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    marginTop: 22,
  },
  modalView: {
    margin: 20,
    backgroundColor: 'white',
    borderRadius: 20,
    padding: 35,
    alignItems: 'center',
    shadowColor: '#000',
    shadowOffset: {
      width: 0,
      height: 2,
    },
    shadowOpacity: 0.25,
    shadowRadius: 4,
    elevation: 5,
  },
  button: {
    borderRadius: 20,
    padding: 10,
    elevation: 2,
  },
  buttonOpen: {
    backgroundColor: '#F194FF',
  },
  buttonClose: {
    backgroundColor: '#2196F3',
  },
  textStyle: {
    color: 'white',
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    textAlign: 'center',
  },
  modalText: {
    marginBottom: 15,
    textAlign: 'center',
  },
});

export default App;

Deprecated. Use the animationType prop instead.

The animationType prop controls how the modal animates.
Possible values:
  • slide slides in from the bottom,
  • fade fades into view,
  • none appears without an animation.
TypeDefault
enum('none', 'slide', 'fade')none

The hardwareAccelerated prop controls whether to force hardware acceleration for the underlying window.
TypeDefault
boolfalse

The onDismiss prop allows passing a function that will be called once the modal has been dismissed.
Type
function

The onOrientationChange callback is called when the orientation changes while the modal is being displayed. The orientation provided is only 'portrait' or 'landscape'. This callback is also called on initial render, regardless of the current orientation.
Type
function

The onRequestClose callback is called when the user taps the hardware back button on Android or the menu button on Apple TV. Because of this required prop, be aware that BackHandler events will not be emitted as long as the modal is open.
Type
function
Required

The onShow prop allows passing a function that will be called once the modal has been shown.
Type
function

The presentationStyle prop controls how the modal appears (generally on larger devices such as iPad or plus-sized iPhones). See https://developer.apple.com/reference/uikit/uimodalpresentationstyle for details.
Possible values:
  • fullScreen covers the screen completely
  • pageSheet covers portrait-width view centered (only on larger devices)
  • formSheet covers narrow-width view centered (only on larger devices)
  • overFullScreen covers the screen completely, but allows transparency
TypeDefault
enum('fullScreen', 'pageSheet', 'formSheet', 'overFullScreen')fullScreen if transparent={false}
overFullScreen if transparent={true}

The statusBarTranslucent prop determines whether your modal should go under the system statusbar.
TypeDefault
boolfalse

The supportedOrientations prop allows the modal to be rotated to any of the specified orientations. On iOS, the modal is still restricted by what's specified in your app's Info.plist's UISupportedInterfaceOrientations field.
When using presentationStyle of pageSheet or formSheet, this property will be ignored by iOS.
TypeDefault
array of enums('portrait', 'portrait-upside-down', 'landscape', 'landscape-left', 'landscape-right')['portrait']

The transparent prop determines whether your modal will fill the entire view. Setting this to true will render the modal over a transparent background.
TypeDefault
boolfalse

The visible prop determines whether your modal is visible.
TypeDefault
booltrue
