Tab navigator

Perhaps the most common navigation style in mobile apps is tab-based navigation. These can be tabs at the bottom of the screen or at the top below the heading (or even instead of the heading).

This guide coverscreateBottomTabNavigator. You can also usecreateMaterialBottomTabNavigator or createMaterialTopTabNavigator to add tabs to your application.

Before proceeding, first install @response-navigation/bottom-tabs:

npm install @react-navigation/bottom-tabs@next

A minimal example of tab navigation#

import * as React from 'react'
import { Text, View } from 'react-native'
import { NavigationContainer } from '@react-navigation/native'
import { createBottomTabNavigator } from '@react-navigation/bottom-tabs'
const HomeScreen = () => (
<View style={{ flex: 1, justifyContent: 'center', alignItems: 'center' }}>
const SettingsScreen = () => (
<View style={{ flex: 1, justifyContent: 'center', alignItems: 'center' }}>
const Tab = createBottomTabNavigator()
export default function App() {
return (
<Tab.Screen name="Home" component={HomeScreen} />
<Tab.Screen name="Settings" component={SettingsScreen} />
