Segmented Control Tab in React Native for Android and iOS

This is an Example of Segmented Control Tab in React Native for Android and iOS using react-native-segmented-control-tab. iOS developers knows what Segmented Control Tab is but if you are coming from an Android development background and have no idea what Segmented Control Tab is, then just imagine a Tab View in Android. Segmented Control Tab is same as Tab in Android but without Swipe to change Tab feature.

It is used as a navigator or to show multiple screens in a single screen. There are 4 Types of Segmented Control Tab that we are going to cover:

  1. Simple Segmented Control Tab

  3. Multi Select Simple Segmented Control Tab
  4. Custom Styling Segmented Control Tab

In this example, we will see how to make a Segmented Control Tab, how to select any tab as default tab, how to call any handler when tab changes, how to control a tab selection using state. 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.

Installation of Dependency

To use SegmentedControlTab we need to install react-native-segmented-control-tab dependency.

To install this open the terminal and jump into your project using

Run the following command to install

This command will copy all the dependency into your node_module directory.

–save is optional, it is just to update the react-native-segmented-control-tab dependency in your package.json file.

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

App.js

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
react-native run-ios (macOS only).
