  constructor (props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = { message: null }

    const messages = [
      { text: 'FYI' },

      setTimeout(() => this.setState({ message }), i * 1000)
    })
  }

  render () {
    return (

    paddingBottom: 15,
    paddingLeft: 15

    color: '#ffffff',
    fontWeight: 'bold'
  }
}

Example with Redux

App.jsx

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import { View } from 'react-native'
import { connect } from 'react-redux'
import Toaster from 'react-native-toaster'

class App extends Component {
  render () {
    return (
      <View>
        <Toaster message={this.props.toastMessage} />
        <LoginForm />
      </View>
    )
  }
}

const mapStateToProps = ({ toastMessage }) => ({ toastMessage })
export default connect(mapStateToProps)(App)

LoginForm.jsx

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import { View, TextInput, TouchableHighlight } from 'react-native'
import { connect } from 'react-redux'
import { ToastStyles } from 'react-native-toaster'
import { addToast } from './redux/actions'
import styles from './styles'

class LoginForm extends Component {
  state = { email: '', password: '' }

  onEmailChange = (email) => this.setState({ email })
  onPasswordChange = (password) => this.setState({ password })

  onLoginButtonPress = () => {
    const { email, password } = this.state

    // TODO: Send to server, on response call addToast:

    this.props.addToast({
      text: 'Successfully logged in',
      styles: ToastStyles.success
    })

    // --- or ---

    this.props.addToast({
      text: 'Login failed, check your email or password',
      styles: ToastStyles.error
    })
  }

  render () {
    return (
      <View>
        <TextInput onChangeText={this.onEmailChange} value={this.state.email} placeholder='Email' />
        <TextInput onChangeText={this.onPasswordChange} value={this.state.password} placeholder='Password' />
        <TouchableHighlight onPress={this.onLoginButtonPress}>

const mapDispatchToProps = { addToast }
export default connect(null, mapDispatchToProps)(LoginForm)

redux/actions.js

export const ADD_TOAST = 'ADD_TOAST'
