Color Reference

Components in React Native are styled using JavaScript. Color properties usually match how CSS works on the web.

Red Green Blue (RGB)

React Native supports rgb() and rgba() in both hexadecimal and functional notation:

  • '#f0f' (#rgb)
  • '#ff00ff' (#rrggbb)
  • '#f0ff' (#rgba)
  • '#ff00ff00' (#rrggbbaa)
  • 'rgb(255, 0, 255)'
  • 'rgba(255, 0, 255, 1.0)'

Hue Saturation Lightness (HSL)

React Native supports hsl() and hsla() in functional notation:

  • 'hsl(360, 100%, 100%)'
  • 'hsla(360, 100%, 100%, 1.0)'

Color ints

React Native supports also colors as an int values (in RGB color mode):

  • 0xff00ff00 (0xrrggbbaa)

Note: This might appear similar to the Android Color ints representation but on Android values are stored in SRGB color mode (0xaarrggbb).

Named colors

In React Native you can also use color name strings as values.

Note: React Native only supports lowercase color names. Uppercase color names are not supported.

transparent

This is a shortcut for rgba(0,0,0,0), same like in CSS3.
