Check Value is a Number using isNaN() in React Native

Check for NaN

This is an example to Check Value is a Number using isNaN() in React Native. The function isNaN() is used to check the value of any variable or state is a number or not. In this example we will check input is a number or not.

To Check Value is a Number or Not

isNaN(Pass the Value to check); //It will return true if not a number else false

It can be used in if condition, as it will return the true or false condition to identify the value, is a number 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.


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


//Check Value is a Number using isNaN() 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, TextInput} from 'react-native';

const App = () => {
  const [inputValue, setInputValue] = useState('');

  const checkValueIsNumberOrNot = () => {
    //Handler called on button click
    if (isNaN(inputValue)) {
      //if input is not a number then here
      alert('It is not a Number');
    } else {
      //if input is number then here
      alert('It is a Number');

  return (
    <SafeAreaView style={{flex: 1}}>
      <View style={styles.container}>
          placeholder="Enter text"
          onChangeText={(inputValue) => setInputValue(inputValue)}
          title=" Check Value Is Number Or Not "

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    alignItems: 'center',
    marginTop: 60,
  textInputStyle: {
    textAlign: 'center',
    height: 50,
    width: '70%',
    marginBottom: 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
