This module are very similar to AlertIOS native module, and only works with alert method (prompt method aren't implemented yet).

The main difference are in the way that you declare buttons. In Android you can declare up to 3 buttons and in this module you have to declare what type the button is. A button can be SimpleAlert.POSITIVE_BUTTON, SimpleAlert.NEGATIVE_BUTTON or SimpleAlert.NEUTRAL_BUTTON.


var SimpleAlert = require('react-native-simpledialog-android');

function _onPress(event) {

    'Please read me!',
    'Want a warning alert?', [
      { type: SimpleAlert.POSITIVE_BUTTON, text: 'Yes', onPress: _onPress },
      { type: SimpleAlert.NEGATIVE_BUTTON, text: 'No', onPress: _onPress },
      { type: SimpleAlert.NEUTRAL_BUTTON, text: 'Neutral', onPress: _onPress },
