Calling api
import Toast from 'react-native-root-toast';

// Add a Toast on screen.
let toast ='This is a message', {
    duration: Toast.durations.LONG,
    position: Toast.positions.BOTTOM,
    shadow: true,
    animation: true,
    hideOnPress: true,
    delay: 0,
    onShow: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s appear animation start
    onShown: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s appear animation end.
    onHide: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s hide animation start.
    onHidden: () => {
        // calls on toast\`s hide animation end.

// You can manually hide the Toast, or it will automatically disappear after a `duration` ms timeout.
setTimeout(function () {
}, 500);

Using a Component

Showing a toast by using a Component inside render, The toast will be automatically disappeared when the <Toast /> is unmounted.

import React, {Component} from 'react-native';
import Toast from 'react-native-root-toast';

class Example extends Component{
    constructor() {
        this.state = {
            visible: false

    componentDidMount() {
        setTimeout(() => this.setState({
            visible: true
        }), 2000); // show toast after 2s

        setTimeout(() => this.setState({
            visible: false
        }), 5000); // hide toast after 5s

    render() {
        return <Toast
        >This is a message</Toast>;

Run example:

cd ./Example
npm install
