Example

To use search header you simply import the component factory function to create a renderable component:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import {
    Dimensions,
    AppRegistry,
    StyleSheet,
    View,
    Text,
    Button,
    StatusBar
} from 'react-native';
import SearchHeader from 'react-native-search-header';

const DEVICE_WIDTH = Dimensions.get(`window`).width;

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
    container: {
        flex: 1,
        justifyContent: 'flex-start',
        alignItems: 'center',
        backgroundColor: '#f5fcff'
    },
    status: {
        zIndex: 10,
        elevation: 2,
        width: DEVICE_WIDTH,
        height: 21,
        backgroundColor: '#0097a7'
    },
    header: {
        justifyContent: 'center',
        alignItems: 'center',
        width: DEVICE_WIDTH,
        height: 56,
        marginBottom: 6,
        backgroundColor: '#00bcd4'
    },
    label: {
        flexGrow: 1,
        fontSize: 20,
        fontWeight: `600`,
        textAlign: `left`,
        marginVertical: 8,
        paddingVertical: 3,
        color: `#f5fcff`,
        backgroundColor: `transparent`
    },
    button: {
        justifyContent: 'center',
        alignItems: 'center',
        width: 130,
        height: 40,
        marginTop: 40,
        borderRadius: 2,
        backgroundColor: `#ff5722`
    }
});

export default class Demo extends Component {
    constructor (props) {
        super(props);
    }

                    <Button
                        title = 'Search'
                        color = '#f5fcff'
                        onPress = {() => this.searchHeader.show()}
                    />
                </View>
                <SearchHeader

                    }}
                    onGetAutocompletions = {async (text) => {
                        if (text) {
                            const response = await fetch(`http://suggestqueries.google.com/complete/search?client=firefox&q=${text}`, {
                                method: `get`
                            });
                            const data = await response.json();
                            return data[1];
                        } else {
                            return [];

                        onPress = {() => this.searchHeader.show()}
                    />
                </View>
                <View style = { styles.button }>

                        color = '#f5fcff'
                        onPress = {() => {
                            this.searchHeader.clear();
                        }}
                    />
                </View>
            </View>
