React Native Quiz Input is a React-Native package that allows the creation of individual character text inputs. While typing, focus will automatically move to the next input or to the previous one (in case of backspace). Spaces are also supported, therefore it is suitable for Quiz-like interfaces, Credit Card inputs, OTP screens and so on.

Installation

with Yarn:

yarn add react-native-quiz-input

or NPM:

npm install react-native-quiz-input --save

Usage

Import the component in your project:

import { QuizInput } from 'react-native-quiz-input';

Use the component:

<QuizInput wordStructure={ [ true, true, true, false, true, true, true ] } onChange={ onChange } />
const onChange = ( data ) => { console.log(data); // your code goes here };

Types

TWordStructure

type TWordStructure = ReadonlyArray<boolean>;

Word structure is defined by providing an array of booleans where true means letter and false mean space.

Example:

Hello World

[ true, true, true, true, true, false, true, true, true, true, true ]

TCallbackData

type TCallbackData = { wordArray: ReadonlyArray<string | false>; wordString: string;}; }

The callback returns an object with 2 properties:

wordArray

An array with the input content. Each row in the array is either a string with the letter or false in case of a space.

wordString

The input content as a string

Example:

{ wordArray: ['H', 'E', 'L', 'L', 'O', false, 'W', 'O', 'R', 'L', 'D' ], wordString: 'HELLO WORLD' }

Other examples

With lineBreakOnSpace: true

const wordStructure = [ true, true, true, true, true, false, true, true, true, true, true ]; <QuizInput wordStructure={ wordStructure } onChange={ onChange } lineBreakOnSpace={ true } />

With long word and maxBoxesPerLine set

const wordStructure = [ true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true ]; <QuizInput wordStructure={ wordStructure } onChange={ onChange } maxBoxesPerLine={ 12 } />

With size: big

const wordStructure = [ true, true, true, true, true, false, true, true, true, true, true ]; <QuizInput wordStructure={ wordStructure } onChange={ onChange } size={ 'big' } />

With size: small

const wordStructure = [ true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true ]; <QuizInput wordStructure={ wordStructure } onChange={ onChange } size={ 'small' } />
