A simple way to dismiss the keyboard programmatically in a react native application. A demo app can be found here.
Deprecated for React Native >= 0.35
This module extracts code from an undocumented React Native feature. The reason I wrote it is that the import of the internal module failed after updating and in some specific setups. The feature is now documented in React Native and may be used directly with the React Native Keyboard API. If your React Native version is high enough I can only encourage you to use React Natives implementation.
Add it to your project
npm install react-native-dismiss-keyboard --save
- To import the library choose one of these options
var dismissKeyboard = require('react-native-dismiss-keyboard');
import dismissKeyboard from 'react-native-dismiss-keyboard';
anywhere in your code to close the keyboard.
