Customized select picker that renders the same on iOS and Android

React Native Form Select Picker

This is a customized select picker that renders the same way on both android and ios.

What's new?

Version 0.0.5 fixed the bugs below:

  • Temporarily fixed breaking changes in React Native 0.60.0 changing from componentWillReceiveProps to UNSAFE_componentWillReceiveProps
  • iOS rendering issues

if you already have this package in your project update to the
latest version by running:

npm install --save [email protected]

Why react-native-form-select-picker?

The reason why I started this project is because react native default Picker becomes messed up when used on iOS devices
and I wanted somthing that works and renders the same on both iOS and Android.

Look and feel

Here is the rendered sample of this package on android/iOS

ios

Installation

To install this package you will have to run the command below using npm

npm install --save react-native-form-select-picker

We dont have an npm link yet. We will update that as soon as we get one.

Usage

This module has been made to conform to the basic react native Picker in order to easily change import
without having to change much on your code-base. We are developer friendly! :D

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import SelectPicker from 'react-native-select-picker'; // Import the package
...

export default class YourClass extends Component {
	...

	render() {
		return (
			...

			<SelectPicker
				onValueChange={(value) => {
					// Do anything you want with the value. 
					// For example, save in state.
					this.setState({
						selected: value
					})
				}}
				selected={this.state.selected}
				>
				...
				<SelectPicker.Item label="Apple" value="apple" />	
				<SelectPicker.Item label="Banana" value="banana" />	
				<SelectPicker.Item label="Orange" value="orange" />	
				...
			</SelectPicker>

			...
		)
	}

	...
}
