Example to Hide Show Component in React Native

Introduction

This is an Example to Hide Show Component in React Native. To do this we will use a conditional operator and state. When we change the state view will re-render itself and after checking the state we will return the view or null. In this example, we are hiding and showing the image on a click of a button.

Hide Show Component Using

<View>{shouldShow ? (Return View Here) : null}</View>

Let’s get started with the example.

To Make a React Native App

Getting started with React Native will help you to know more about the way you can make a React Native project. We are going to use react-native init to make our React Native App. Assuming that you have node installed, you can use npm to install the react-native-cli command line utility. Open the terminal and go to the workspace and run

npm install -g react-native-cli

Run the following commands to create a new React Native project

react-native init ProjectName

If you want to start a new project with a specific React Native version, you can use the --version argument:

react-native init ProjectName --version X.XX.X
react-native init ProjectName --version react-native@next

This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Code

Open App.js in any code editor and replace the code with the following code

App.js

//Example to Hide Show Component in React Native
//https://aboutreact.com/example-to-hide-show-component-in-react-native/

//import React in our code
import React, {useState} from 'react';

//import all the components we are going to use
import {
    SafeAreaView,
    StyleSheet,
    View,
    Button,
    Image
} from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  const [shouldShow, setShouldShow] = useState(true);
  return (
    <SafeAreaView style={{flex: 1}}>
      <View style={styles.container}>
        {/*Here we will return the view when state is true 
        and will return false if state is false*/}
        {shouldShow ? (
          <Image
            source={{
              uri:
                'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/AboutReact/sampleresource/master/old_logo.png',
            }}
            style={{width: 250, height: 250}}
          />
        ) : null}
        <Button
          title="Hide/Show Component"
          onPress={() => setShouldShow(!shouldShow)}
        />
      </View>
    </SafeAreaView>
  );
};

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    flex: 1,
    margin: 10,
  },
});

export default App;

To Run the React Native App

Open the terminal again and jump into your project using.

cd ProjectName

To run the project on an Android Virtual Device or on real debugging device

react-native run-android

or on the iOS Simulator by running (macOS only)

react-native run-ios
