Scroll State and Events for Gallery

Built with react-native-gallery-swiper.

  • onPageScroll : (event) => {}.

    The event object carries the following data:

    • position: index of first page from the left that is currently visible.
    • offset: value from range [0,1) describing stage between page transitions.
    • fraction: means that (1 - x) fraction of the page at "position" index is visible, and x fraction of the next page is visible.
  • onPageScrollStateChanged : (state) => {}.

    Called when the page scrolling state has changed. The page scrolling state can be in 3 states:

    • 'idle': there is no interaction with the page scroller happening at the time.
    • 'dragging': there is currently an interaction with the page scroller.
    • 'settling': there was an interaction with the page scroller, and the page scroller is now finishing its closing or opening animation.
