accessibilityId

string

  • It is hard or impossible to tell by a reference to an instance of a component from where this component has been instantiated

  • You can assign this property and check instance.props.accessibilityId

  • For example accessibilityId is used in View's FocusArbitrator callback

activeOpacity

number

  • Opacity value the button should animate to, on touch on views that have onPress handlers

  • iOS and Android only

animateChildEnter

boolean

  • Animation of children:

    • Every child must have a key

    • String refs aren't supported on children, only callback refs are

animateChildLeave

boolean

  • Animation of children

    • Every child must have a key

    • String refs aren't supported on children, only callback refs are

animateChildMove

boolean

  • Animation of children

    • Every child must have a key

    • String refs aren't supported on children, only callback refs are

ariaLabelledBy?

string

  • Id of an element that describes the view for screen-reader

  • Web only

ariaRoleDescription?

string

  • Web only

blockPointerEvents

boolean

disableTouchOpacityAnimation

boolean

  • Disable default opacity animation on touch on views that have onPress handlers

  • iOS and Android only

id

string

  • NOTE: This property may be going away in future versions

  • Web only

ignorePointerEvents

boolean

  • Ignore clicks and other mouse events, allowing children or components behind to receive them

importantForAccessibility?

ImportantForAccessibility

  • Expose the element and/or its children as accessible to screen-readers

restrictFocusWithin

boolean

  • When the keyboard navigation is happening, restrict the focusable elements within this view

  • Useful for popups and modals, you might want to prevent the focus from going outside of the popup or modal

  • The views with restrictFocusWithin are stacked and the last mounted view is a winner

  • This means if you, for example, have restricted the focus within some modal, and you have a popup (which also desires for a restricted focus) inside this modal, the popup will get the restriction, but when dismissed, the restriction will be restored for the modal

  • See also the companion method setFocusRestricted() below

  • WARNING: For the sake of performance, this property is readonly and changing it during the View life cycle will produce an error

limitFocusWithin

LimitFocusType

  • When the keyboard navigation is happening, do not focus on this view and on all focusable elements inside this view

  • See also the companion method setFocusLimited() below

  • Useful for the list items, allows to skip the consecutive focusing on one list item (and item's internal focusable elements) after another using the Tab key and implement the switching between the items using the arrow keys (or using some other behaviour)

  • When limitFocusWithin=LimitFocusType.Limited, the View and the focusable components inside the View get both tabIndex=-1 and aria-hidden=true

  • When limitFocusWithin=LimitFocusType.Accessible, the View and the focusable components inside the View get only tabIndex=-1.

  • WARNING: For the sake of performance, this property is readonly and changing it during the View life cycle will produce an error

autoFocus

boolean

  • Should be focused when the component is mounted, see also arbitrateFocus property below

  • WARNING: autoFocus=true means that this View's requestFocus() method will be called, however calling requestFocus() might have no effect (for example on web View is focusable only when tabIndex is specified), the application has to handle this either while setting this property or in the View's FocusArbitrator callback

arbitrateFocus

FocusArbitrator

  • When multiple components with autoFocus=true inside this View are mounting at the same time, and/or multiple components inside this view have received focus() call during the same render cycle, this callback will be called so that it's possible for the application to decide which one should actually be focused

importantForLayout

boolean

  • Additional invisible DOM elements will be added inside the view to track the size changes that are performed behind our back by the browser's layout engine faster (ViewBase checks for the layout updates once a second and sometimes it's not fast enough)

  • Web only
