Build Status Version MIT License runs with expo

Expo app

If you are looking for the integration with react-native-tab-view and/or react-navigation, you need to use the v2.

Collapsible Tab View for React Native, with Reanimated.


The react-native-tab-view example app was used as template for the demos.


Default Snap revealHeaderOnScroll revealHeaderOnScroll + Snap


  • Animations and interactions on the UI thread
  • Highly customizable
  • Fully typed with TypeScript
  • Lazy support with fade-in animation
  • DiffClamp header
  • Interpolated header
  • Scroll snap (with interpolated header)
  • Animated snap (with diffClamp header)
  • Scrollable tabs, inspired by the react-native-tab-view tab bar
  • Support horizontal and vertical window


Open a Terminal in the project root and run:

yarn add react-native-collapsible-tab-view@next

Then, add Reanimated v2, follow the official installation guide.

Quick Start

import React from 'react'
import { View, StyleSheet, ListRenderItem } from 'react-native'
import { Tabs } from 'react-native-collapsible-tab-view'

const HEADER_HEIGHT = 250

const Header = () => {
  return <View style={styles.header} />

const Example: React.FC = () => {
  const renderItem: ListRenderItem<number> = React.useCallback(({ index }) => {
    return (
      <View style={[, index % 2 === 0 ? styles.boxB : styles.boxA]} />
  }, [])

  return (
      headerHeight={HEADER_HEIGHT} // optional
      <Tabs.Tab name="A">
          data={[0, 1, 2, 3, 4]}
          keyExtractor={(v) => v + ''}
      <Tabs.Tab name="B">
          <View style={[, styles.boxA]} />
          <View style={[, styles.boxB]} />

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  box: {
    height: 250,
    width: '100%',
  boxA: {
    backgroundColor: 'white',
  boxB: {
    backgroundColor: '#D8D8D8',
  header: {
    height: HEADER_HEIGHT,
    width: '100%',
    backgroundColor: '#2196f3',

export default Example


Scroll on header

If you want to allow scrolling from the header:

  • If the HeaderComponent doesn't contain touchables set pointerEvents='none'

  • If HeaderComponent does contain touchables set pointerEvents='box-none' for them to work.

    Note: With this setting any child component that should not respond to touches (e.g. <Image />) needs to have pointerEvents set to 'none'. Otherwise it can become the target of a touch gesture on iOS devices and thereby preventing scrolling.

API reference



Basic usage looks like this:

import { Tabs } from 'react-native-collapsible-tab-view'

const Example = () => {
   return (
     <Tabs.Container HeaderComponent={MyHeader}>
       <Tabs.Tab name="A">
         <ScreenA />
       <Tabs.Tab name="B">
         <ScreenB />


name type default description
HeaderComponent ((props: TabBarProps<T>) => React.ReactElement) | null | undefined
TabBarComponent ((props: TabBarProps<T>) => React.ReactElement) | null | undefined MaterialTabBar
cancelLazyFadeIn boolean | undefined
cancelTranslation boolean | undefined
containerStyle StyleProp<ViewStyle>
headerContainerStyle StyleProp<AnimateStyle<ViewStyle>>
headerHeight number | undefined Is optional, but will optimize the first render.
initialTabName string | number | undefined
lazy boolean | undefined If lazy, will mount the screens only when the tab is visited. There is a default fade in transition.
minHeaderHeight number | undefined Header minimum height when collapsed
onIndexChange ((index: number) => void) | undefined Callback fired when the index changes. It receives the current index.
onTabChange (data: { prevIndex: number index: number prevTabName: T tabName: T }) => void Callback fired when the tab changes. It receives the previous and current index and tabnames.
pagerProps Omit<FlatListProps<number>, 'data' | 'keyExtractor' | 'renderItem' | 'horizontal' | 'pagingEnabled' | 'onScroll' | 'showsHorizontalScrollIndicator' | 'getItemLayout'> Props passed to the horiztontal flatlist. If you want for example to disable swiping, you can pass { scrollEnabled: false }
revealHeaderOnScroll boolean | undefined Reveal header when scrolling down. Implements diffClamp.
snapThreshold number | null | undefined null Percentage of header height to define as the snap point. A number between 0 and 1, or null to disable snapping.
tabBarHeight number | undefined Is optional, but will optimize the first render.


Wrap your screens with Tabs.Tab. Basic usage looks like this:

<Tabs.Container ...>
  <Tabs.Tab name="A" label="First Tab">
   <ScreenA />
  <Tabs.Tab name="B">
   <ScreenA />


name type
label string | undefined
name T


Typically used internally, but if you want to mix lazy and regular screens you can wrap the lazy ones with this component.


name type
cancelLazyFadeIn boolean | undefined
startMounted boolean | undefined


Use like a regular FlatList.


Use like a regular ScrollView.


You can pass a ref to Tabs.Container.

const ref = React.useRef()
<Tabs.Container ref={ref}>
method type
jumpToTab (name: T) => boolean
setIndex (index: number) => boolean
getFocusedTab () => T
getCurrentIndex () => number



Hook to access some key styles that make the whole think work. You can use this to get the progessViewOffset and pass to the refresh control of scroll view.

const {
} = useCollapsibleStyle()


name type
contentContainerStyle { minHeight: number; paddingTop: number; }
progressViewOffset number
style { width: number; }


Returns an animated value representing the current tab index, as a floating point number.

const tabIndex = useAnimatedTabIndex()


Returns the currently focused tab name.

const focusedTab = useAnimatedTabIndex()


Returns the top distance and the header height. See the animated header example in the example folder.

const { top, height } = useHeaderMeasurements()

Default Tab Bar


Any additional props are passed to the pressable component.


name type default description
activeColor string | undefined null Color applied to the label when active
inactiveColor string | undefined null Color applied to the label when inactive
inactiveOpacity number | undefined 0.7
index number
indexDecimal SharedValue<number>
label string
labelStyle StyleProp<AnimateStyle<TextStyle>> Style to apply to the tab item label
name T
onLayout (((event: LayoutChangeEvent) => void) & ((event: LayoutChangeEvent) => void)) | undefined Invoked on mount and layout changes with {nativeEvent: { layout: {x, y, width, height}}}.
onPress (name: T) => void
pressColor string | undefined #DDDDDD
pressOpacity number | undefined Platform.OS === 'ios' ? 0.2 : 1
scrollEnabled boolean | undefined
style StyleProp<ViewStyle> Either view styles or a function that receives a boolean reflecting whether the component is currently pressed and returns view styles.

Known issues

Android FlatList pull to refresh

See this open issue. We use scrollTo to synchronize the unfocused tabs, it's supposed to work only with ScrollView, but works great with FlatList, until the RefreshControl is added. Note that this happens only to android.

Workaround: see the Android Shared Pull To Refresh example in the expo app. You can have a single pull to refresh for the Tabs.Container.

iOS FlatList stickyHeaderIndices

When you use the stickyHeaderIndices prop on a FlatList, the sticky elements don't scroll up when the header collapses. This happens only on iOS.

See #136.


This isn't an issue, but you need to know. When using containerRef.current.setIndex(i), if setting to the current index, the screen will scroll to the top. You can prevent this behavior like this:

const index = pageRef.current?.getCurrentIndex()
if (index !== nextIndex) {

Alternative libraries

If you don't need a full-featured tab view, check out the other option, a simple segmented control / material tab bar without swiping or snapping, using just the react native Animated API.
