๐Ÿšง MaskedViewIOS

Deprecated. Use @react-native-community/masked-view instead.

Renders the child view with a mask specified in the maskElement prop.

Example#

import React from 'react';
import { MaskedViewIOS, Text, View } from 'react-native';
class MyMaskedView extends React.Component {
render() {
return (
// Determines shape of the mask
<MaskedViewIOS
style={{ flex: 1, flexDirection: 'row', height: '100%' }}
maskElement={
<View
style={{
// Transparent background because mask is based off alpha channel.
backgroundColor: 'transparent',
flex: 1,
justifyContent: 'center',
alignItems: 'center'
}}>
<Text
style={{
fontSize: 60,
color: 'black',
fontWeight: 'bold'
}}>
Basic Mask
</Text>
</View>
}>
{/* Shows behind the mask, you can put anything here, such as an image */}
<View
style={{
flex: 1,
height: '100%',
backgroundColor: '#324376'
}}
/>
<View
style={{
flex: 1,
height: '100%',
backgroundColor: '#F5DD90'
}}
/>
<View
style={{
flex: 1,
height: '100%',
backgroundColor: '#F76C5E'
}}
/>
</MaskedViewIOS>
);
}
}

The following image demonstrates that you can put almost anything behind the mask. The three examples shown are masked <View>, <Text>, and <Image>.

The alpha channel of the view rendered by the maskElement prop determines how much of the view's content and background shows through. Fully or partially opaque pixels allow the underlying content to show through but fully transparent pixels block that content.
