React Native Check TextInput is Empty or Not

Introduction

This is an example of React Native Check TextInput is Empty or Not. As the topic name describes itself, we will check the TextInput on a click of the Button. This is very useful if you are making any form that has some mandatory fields.

Check TextInput Using

if (!textInputName.trim()) {
    alert('Please Enter Name');
    return;
}

In this example, we will check whether both inputs filled or not. So let’s get started.

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

//React Native Check TextInput is Empty or Not
//https://aboutreact.com/react-native-check-textinput-is-empty-or-not/

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

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

const App = () => {
  const [textInputName, setTextInputName] = useState('');
  const [textInputEmail, setTextInputEmail] = useState('');

  const checkTextInput = () => {
    //Check for the Name TextInput
    if (!textInputName.trim()) {
      alert('Please Enter Name');
      return;
    }
    //Check for the Email TextInput
    if (!textInputEmail.trim()) {
      alert('Please Enter Email');
      return;
    }
    //Checked Successfully
    //Do whatever you want
    alert('Success');
  };

  return (
    <SafeAreaView style={{flex: 1}}>
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <TextInput
          placeholder="Enter Name"
          onChangeText={
            (value) => setTextInputName(value)
          }
          underlineColorAndroid="transparent"
          style={styles.textInputStyle}
        />
        <TextInput
          placeholder="Enter Email"
          onChangeText={
            (value) => setTextInputEmail(value)
          }
          underlineColorAndroid="transparent"
          style={styles.textInputStyle}
        />
        <View style={{marginTop: 15}}>
          <Button 
            title="Submit"
            onPress={checkTextInput}
            color="#606070" 
          />
        </View>
      </View>
    </SafeAreaView>
  );
};

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 35,
  },
  textInputStyle: {
    width: '100%',
    height: 40,
    paddingHorizontal: 5,
    borderWidth: 0.5,
    marginTop: 15,
  },
});

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
