  • ProgressBar

This individual component can be used to display progressive bar with controlled duration, style & motion. To programatically enable or disable the progress pass boolean value to enableProgress & to change the position of progress use progressIndex prop along with duration prop to control the motion. On every change of propress position onChange function will be invoked for any customization.

   onChange={() => {}}
      barActiveColor: BAR_ACTIVE_COLOR,
      barInActiveColor: BAR_INACTIVE_COLOR,
      barWidth: 100, 
      barHeight: 4
  • StoryContainer

This component provides you with entire functionality of Status/Stories feature along with flexible customization.

Basic Usage

This simply display's only the Progress Bar & the Story view images without any header or footer view. The container can be given style by providing containerStyle props.

import { StoryContainer } from 'react-native-stories-view';

   onComplete={() => alert("onComplete")}
       width: '100%',
       height: '100%',

Header View

You can use the inbuilt header view which can display basic user details by simply providing userProfile props with specified parameters.

// User Information in header
   onComplete={() => alert("onComplete")}
      userImage: PROFILE,
      userName: 'Yuvraj Pandey',
      userMessage: 'Work hard & success will follow !!',
      imageArrow: BACK,
      onImageClick: () => {
         Alert.alert('User profile image tapped');

However if you wish to add your own custom component, you can pass your own component in headerComponent prop and this will replace the header described above.

   onComplete={() => alert("onComplete")}
   headerComponent={<View />}

In case neither of the prop i.e userProfile or headerComponent is passed then header view will be not be displayed.

Footer View

The in built footer view provides you with a reply option where in you can accept user input for the status user just viewed. isShowReply boolean prop can be used to programaically show or hide the footer reply view. The onReplyTextChange & onReplyButtonClick function provides callback for the action performed by the user along with the progressIndex of the particular story currently viewed.

// Reply option in Footer
   onComplete={() => alert("onComplete")}
      isShowReply: true,
      onReplyTextChange: (textReply, progressIndex) => {
          console.log(`Text : ${textReply} , position : ${progressIndex}`);
      onReplyButtonClick: (buttonType, progressIndex) => {
         switch (buttonType) {
            case 'send':
               console.log(`Send button tapped for position : ${progressIndex}`);

             case 'smiley':
               console.log(`Smiley button tapped for position : ${progressIndex}`);

If you have your own custom component to use in Footer, simply pass your component in footerComponent prop as below which will replace the inbuilt Footer with your own custom style.

// Custom Footer component option
   onComplete={() => alert("onComplete")}
   footerComponent={<View />}

However if neither of the prop i.e replyView or footerComponent is passed then footer view will be not be displayed.
