React Native Text Input

TextInput is the fundamental component to input text. It has several props that configure the different features, such as onChangeText that takes a function and call it whenever the text changed, and onSubmitEditing prop that takes a function, which called when the text is submitted.

There are several things, which can be performed with text input, such as validating the text inside while user types.

In this example, we create a TextInput and perform an onChangeText action. At every text change, it calls setState and checks the condition of a split. If the input text found ' ' space, it displays '🍕' in the text. The text is placed in state as it is changed every time.
