Native Base Select

Native Base is a popular open-source UI component library for building cross-platform applications using React Native. It provides a wide range of customizable UI components such as buttons, forms, cards, and more. Native Base also provides a Select component that can be used to create dropdown menus in your app.


To use the Native Base Select component, you must first install the Native Base library in your project using npm.

npm install native-base --save

Once installed, you can import the Select component from the Native Base library and use it in your code as shown below:

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import { Container, Content, Form, Item, Label, Select } from 'native-base';

const MyComponent = () => {
  const [selectedValue, setSelectedValue] = useState("");

  return (
            Select Option
              Option 1
              Option 2
              Option 3

export default MyComponent;

In the code above, we import the necessary components from Native Base and create a state variable selectedValue to store the selected option. We then render a Form component containing a Select component wrapped inside an Item component with a stackedLabel. The Select component takes in a placeholder text, the selectedValue and an onValueChange function that updates the selectedValue state variable whenever the user selects a different option from the dropdown menu.


The Native Base Select component can be customized using CSS styles. You can style the dropdown menu using the <Select> tag or the options using the <option> tag. For example:

.Select {
  background-color: #fff;
  border: 1px solid #ccc;
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 10px;

.Select option {
  background-color: #fff;
  color: #000;
  font-size: 16px;
  padding: 10px;

In the code above, we set the background color, border, border-radius and padding for the Select component and set the background color, font size and padding for the options in the dropdown menu.


The Native Base Select component provides an easy way to create dropdown menus in your React Native app. By customizing its styles, you can make it fit your app's design and enhance its user experience.
