React Native Select Dropdown For Android and iOS

react native select dropdown

The select dropdown feature is useful for presenting users with a list of predefined options which they can select from.

To achieve this in React Native, we make use of the react-native-select-dropdown

The react-native-select-dropdown is a highly customized dropdown | select | picker | menu for react native that works for andriod and iOS platforms.

First, we install this dependency in our application.

yarn add react-native-select-dropdown

Then we can use in any of the following ways:

mport React from 'react';
import {View, Text, SafeAreaView, StatusBar, Dimensions, StyleSheet, ScrollView, Image} from 'react-native';
const {width} = Dimensions.get('window');
import FontAwesome from 'react-native-vector-icons/FontAwesome';
import Ionicons from 'react-native-vector-icons/Ionicons';
import SelectDropdown from 'react-native-select-dropdown';

export default Demo1 = () => {
  const countries = [
    'Egypt',
    'Canada',
    'Australia',
    'Ireland',
    'Brazil',
    'England',
    'Dubai',
    'France',
    'Germany',
    'Saudi Arabia',
    'Argentina',
    'India',
  ];
  const countriesWithFlags = [
    {title: 'Egypt', image: require('./Images/Egypt.png')},
    {title: 'Canada', image: require('./Images/Canada.png')},

  ];

  const renderHeader = () => {
