  1. import DraggableFlatList from 'react-native-draggable-flatlist'



All props are spread onto underlying FlatList

Name Type Description
data T[] Items to be rendered.
horizontal boolean Orientation of list.
renderItem (params: { item: T, index: number, drag: () => void, isActive: boolean}) => JSX.Element Call drag when the row should become active (i.e. in an onLongPress or onPressIn).
keyExtractor (item: T, index: number) => string Unique key for each item
onDragBegin (index: number) => void Called when row becomes active.
onRelease (index: number) => void Called when active row touch ends.
onDragEnd (params: { data: T[], from: number, to: number }) => void Called after animation has completed. Returns updated ordering of data
autoscrollThreshold number Distance from edge of container where list begins to autoscroll when dragging.
autoscrollSpeed number Determines how fast the list autoscrolls.
onRef (ref: React.RefObject<DraggableFlatList<T>>) => void Returns underlying Animated FlatList ref.
animationConfig Partial<Animated.SpringConfig> Configure list animations. See reanimated spring config
activationDistance number Distance a finger must travel before the gesture handler activates. Useful when using a draggable list within a TabNavigator so that the list does not capture navigator gestures.
layoutInvalidationKey string Changing this value forces a remeasure of all item layouts. Useful if item size/ordering updates after initial mount.
onScrollOffsetChange (offset: number) => void Called with scroll offset. Stand-in for onScroll.
