React Native Tab View npm version

A cross-platform Tab View component for React Native.

This is a JavaScript-only implementation of swipeable tab views. It's super customizable, allowing you to do things like coverflow.

Requires React Native version >= 0.36.

Features

  • Smooth animations and gestures
  • Scrollable tabs
  • Both top and bottom tab bars
  • Follows Material Design spec
  • Highly customizable

Demo

Installation

npm install --save react-native-tab-view

Example

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { View, StyleSheet } from 'react-native';
import { TabViewAnimated, TabBar } from 'react-native-tab-view';

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
  },
  page: {
    flex: 1,
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
  },
});

export default class TabViewExample extends Component {
  state = {
    index: 0,
    routes: [
      { key: '1', title: 'First' },
      { key: '2', title: 'Second' },
    ],
  };

  _handleChangeTab = (index) => {
    this.setState({ index });
  };

  _renderHeader = (props) => {
    return <TabBar {...props} />;
  };

  _renderScene = ({ route }) => {
    switch (route.key) {
    case '1':
      return <View style={[ styles.page, { backgroundColor: '#ff4081' } ]} />;
    case '2':
      return <View style={[ styles.page, { backgroundColor: '#673ab7' } ]} />;
    default:
      return null;
    }
  };

  render() {
    return (
      <TabViewAnimated
        style={styles.container}
        navigationState={this.state}
        renderScene={this._renderScene}
        renderHeader={this._renderHeader}
        onRequestChangeTab={this._handleChangeTab}
      />
    );
  }
}

API

The package exposes the following components,

<TabViewAnimated />

Container component responsible for managing tab transitions

It accepts the following props,

  • navigationState - the current navigation state
  • configureTransition - optional callback which returns a configuration for the transition, return null to disable animation
  • onRequestChangeTab - callback for when the current tab changes, should do the setState
  • onChangePosition - callback called with position value as it changes (e.g. - on swipe or tab change), avoid doing anything expensive here
  • canJumpToTab - optional callback which accepts a route, and returns a boolean indicating whether jumping to the tab is allowed
  • lazy - whether to load tabs lazily when you start switching
  • initialLayout - optional object containing the initial height and width, can be passed to prevent the one frame delay in rendering
  • renderPager - optional callback which renders a pager responsible for handling swipes
  • renderHeader - optional callback which renders a header, useful for a top tab bar
  • renderFooter - optional callback which renders a footer, useful for a bottom tab bar
  • renderScene - callback which renders a single scene

<TabViewPagerPan />

Pager component based on PanResponder

It accepts the following props,

  • swipeEnabled - whether to enable swipe gestures
  • swipeDistanceThreshold - minimum swipe distance to trigger page switch
  • swipeVelocityThreshold - minimum swipe velocity to trigger page switch
  • children - React Element(s) to render

<TabViewPagerScroll />

Pager component based on ScrollView (default on iOS)

It accepts the following props,

  • swipeEnabled - whether to enable swipe gestures
  • children - React Element(s) to render

<TabViewPagerAndroid />

Pager component based on ViewPagerAndroid (default on Android)

It accepts the following props,

  • swipeEnabled - whether to enable swipe gestures
  • animationEnabled - whether to enable page change animation
  • children - React Element(s) to render

<TabBar />

Material design themed top tab bar

It accepts the following props,

  • getLabelText - optional callback which receives the current scene and returns the tab label
  • renderIcon - optional callback which receives the current scene and returns a React Element to be used as a icon
  • renderLabel - optional callback which receives the current scene and returns a React Element to be used as a label
  • renderIndicator - optional callback which receives the current scene and returns a React Element to be used as a tab indicator
  • renderBadge - optional callback which receives the current scene and returns a React Element to be used as a badge
  • onTabPress - optional callback invoked on tab press, useful for things like scroll to top
  • pressColor - color for material ripple (Android >= 5.0 only)
  • pressOpacity - opacity for pressed tab (iOS and Android < 5.0 only)
  • scrollEnabled - whether to enable scrollable tabs
  • tabWidth - optional custom tab width
  • tabStyle - style object for the tab
  • indicatorStyle - style object for the tab indicator
  • labelStyle - style object for the tab label

Check the type definitions for details on shape of different objects.

Caveats

<TabViewAnimated /> is a PureComponent to prevent unnecessary re-rendering. As a side-effect, the tabs won't re-render if something changes in the parent's state. If you need it to trigger a re-render, put it in the navigationState.

For example, consider you have a loaded property on state which should trigger re-render. You can have your state like the following -

state = {
  index: 0,
  routes: [
    { key: '1', title: 'First' },
    { key: '2', title: 'Second' },
  ],
  loaded: false,
}

Then pass this.state as the navigationState prop to <TabViewAnimated /> or <TabViewTransitioner />.

<TabViewAnimated
  navigationState={this.state}
  renderScene={this._renderPage}
  renderHeader={this._renderHeader}
  onRequestChangeTab={this._handleChangeTab}
/>

Optimization Tips

Avoid unnecessary re-renders

The renderScene function is called every time the index changes. If your renderScene function is expensive, it's good idea move each route to a separate component if they don't depend on the index, and apply shouldComponentUpdate to prevent unnecessary re-renders.

For example, instead of:

renderScene = ({ route }) => {
  switch (route.key) {
  case 'home':
    return (
      <View style={styles.page}>
        <Avatar />
        <NewsFeed />>
      </View>
    );
  default:
    return null;
  }
}

Do the following:

renderScene = ({ route }) => {
  switch (route.key) {
  case 'home':
    return <HomeComponent />;
  default:
    return null;
  }
}

Where <HomeComponent /> is a PureComponent.

Avoid one frame delay before tab view appears

We need to measure the width of the container and hence need to wait before rendering. This is especially visible when you are rendering more than one tab on screen, such as coverflow. If you know the initial width upfront, you can pass it in and we won't need to wait for measuring it. Most of the time, it's just the window width.

For example, pass the following initialLayout to TabViewAnimated:

const initialLayout = {
  height: 0,
  width: Dimensions.get('window').width,
};

The tabview will still react to changes in the dimension and adjust accordingly to accommodate things like orientation change.

Optimize large number of routes

If you've a large number of routes, especially images, it can slow the animation down a lot. You can instead render a limited number of routes.

For example, do the following to render only 2 routes on each side:

renderScene = ({ route }) => {
  if (Math.abs(this.state.index - this.state.routes.indexOf(route)) > 2) {
    return null;
  }

  return <MySceneComponent route={route} />;
};

Troubleshooting

TabBar disappears or shows weird behaviour when conditionally rendering items

zIndex in React Native is buggy which results in weird behaviour when you remove adjacent items from the hierarchy. You can try setting zIndex to 0 for the TabBar to avoid the issue.
