Synthetic Press Functionality with Manual Check State

React Native Bouncy Checkbox

Please check the example-manual-state runable project to how to make it work on a real project.

Be careful while using disableBuiltInState you MUST set the isChecked prop to use your own check state manually. The onPress callback will NOT receive the next isChecked when disableBuiltInState is used.

Here is the basic implementation:

import React from "react";
import {
} from "react-native";
import BouncyCheckbox from "./lib/BouncyCheckbox";
import RNBounceable from "@freakycoder/react-native-bounceable";

const App = () => {
  let bouncyCheckboxRef: BouncyCheckbox | null = null;
  const [checkboxState, setCheckboxState] = React.useState(false);

  return (
        flex: 1,
        alignItems: "center",
        justifyContent: "center",
          height: 30,
          width: 150,
          alignItems: "center",
          justifyContent: "center",
          borderRadius: 12,
          backgroundColor: checkboxState ? "#34eb83" : "#eb4034",
          style={{ color: "#fff" }}
        >{`Check Status: ${checkboxState.toString()}`}</Text>
        style={{ marginTop: 16 }}
        ref={(ref: any) => (bouncyCheckboxRef = ref)}
        text="Synthetic Checkbox"
        onPress={() => setCheckboxState(!checkboxState)}
          marginTop: 16,
          height: 50,
          width: "90%",
          backgroundColor: "#ffc484",
          borderRadius: 12,
          alignItems: "center",
          justifyContent: "center",
        onPress={() => bouncyCheckboxRef?.onPress()}
        <Text style={{ color: "#fff" }}>Synthetic Checkbox Press</Text>

const styles = StyleSheet.create({});

export default App;

React Native Bouncy Checkbox Group

React Native Bouncy Checkbox

We have also this library's checkbox group library as well :) Please take a look


How to disable strikethrough?

  • Simply use the textStyle prop and set the textDecorationLine to none
  textDecorationLine: "none",

How to make square checkbox?

  • Simply use the iconStyle prop and set the borderRadius to 0
  borderRadius: 0, // to make it a little round increase the value accordingly

Future Plans

  • Typescript Challange!
  • Version 2.0.0 is alive 🥳
  • Synthetic Press Functionality
  • Disable built-in check state
  • React Native Bouncy Checkbox Group Library Extension
  • New Animation and More Customizable Animation
  • Version 3.0.0 is alive 🚀
  • Better Documentation | Separation of Documentation
  • Write an article about the lib on Medium
