- Now here are the two ways the animation could be put in place.Use the Animated API and handle all the movements ( which in this case are simple to be fair ) between the two modes in a relatively complicated way by having one view move off screen when the…
- Use the LayoutAnimation API to essentially configure how changes in the layout are to be handled.Now here is my thought process, the Animated API is pretty strong but it involves writing a lot of code for something that is very simple.
- The API works for both iOS and Android but to make it work on Android you have to add the following lines to your file.This can go anywhere in your file.This needs to go in the constructor.Now some things to keep in mind, LayoutAnimation handles the way layout changes are handled…
- Now I decided to stick with linear but the fact that views didnt hide fast enough was a minor ( not for me ) annoyance, but luckily LayoutAnimation also supports custom animation configurations.The config for LayoutAnimations require a duration for the animation and optionally you can also give custom configs…
- The type property indicates the animation type to be used and property is used to indicate what is to be animated.Animation types can be of the property can beNow I was happy with just animating the opacity of the views when deleting and updating but I gave the delete a…
So first things first this article is simply my opinions on React Native’s LayoutAnimation API, it is not a guide on how to use the API but simply a description of the all that I have learnt about…

- Yet the render method, the component props, and the component state are the most important things in a React app – getting a good grasp on these paves the way for productively using React in commercial apps.
- In the above example, notice how state is updated with a new address object on every change – this avoids skipping updates when is used – which is just a React component that only re-renders when it receives new values for props and for state (it shallowly compares the old and new props objects and the old and new state objects).
- Another powerful concept in React apps is controlled props – it basically means components don’t store any intermediate state for the controlled props (for example on updating the value inside a text input), but rather on every change, they notify the owner component of the change, so the owner can re-render the controlled component with updated values for the props.
- The above inputs are example of controlled components (already baked into React), but basically this is the gist: uncontrolled components use their internal state to update their UI, while controlled components always show values from props.
- And the beauty of it is that in almost no time you can become productive in building native UIs for mobile or desktop operating systems, or even for the webVR now that React is becoming widely adopted, with libraries written to target multiple platforms, but with one common way of thinking about UIs – declarative and component-based.
React is different in so many ways from its front-end predecessors. But the most different part is its way of thinking. Read on to find out more!
- For a majority, Flash was a negative experience and UI technology.
- Throughout the years we have continued to try and push the boundaries of UI technologies.
- Our obsession with Flex included a deep understand of the application and component life cycles, resulting in a 90-page white paper.
- We truly enjoy the exploration of technologies and frameworks.
- Our goal with the GitBook is to document our process, share our research and try to organize our experiences into a single living document.
