Color reference

Components in React Native are styled using JavaScript. Color properties usually correspond to how CSS works on the web. General guidelines for using color on each platform can be found below:

Color representations

Red Green Blue (RGB)

Red, green, blue an additive color model that describes a way of coding a color for color reproduction using three colors, which are commonly called primary. The choice of primary colors is due to the physiological features of color perception by the retina of the human eye. 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)

A color model in which the color coordinates are hue, saturation, and lightness. React Native supports hsl () and hsla () in functional notation:

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

Named colors

In React Native, you can also use strings with color names 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), the same as in CSS3.

The named colors implementation follows the CSS3 / SVG specification:
