ActionSheet is a cross-platform React Native component that uses the native UIActionSheet on iOS and a JS implementation on Android. Almost a drop in replacement for ActionSheetIOS except it cannot be called statically.

iOS Android Web


$ npm install @expo/react-native-action-sheet -S


$ yarn add @expo/react-native-action-sheet

A basic ActionSheet Setup

1. Wrap your top-level component with <ActionSheetProvider />

import { ActionSheetProvider } from '@expo/react-native-action-sheet'
class AppContainer extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
        <ConnectedApp />

2. Connect your component which uses showActionSheetWithOptions.

import { connectActionSheet } from '@expo/react-native-action-sheet'
class App extends React.Component {
  /* ... */
const ConnectedApp = connectActionSheet(App)
export default ConnectedApp

App component can access the actionSheet method as this.props.showActionSheetWithOptions

_onOpenActionSheet = () => {
  // Same interface as https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/actionsheetios.html
  const options = ['Delete', 'Save', 'Cancel'];
  const destructiveButtonIndex = 0;
  const cancelButtonIndex = 2;
    buttonIndex => {
      // Do something here depending on the button index selected

You can use a hook instead of the higher order component if you are on React 16.8 or newer.

import { useActionSheet } from '@expo/react-native-action-sheet'
export default function App () {
  const { showActionSheetWithOptions } = useActionSheet();
  /* ... */


The goal of this library is to mimic the native iOS and Android ActionSheets as closely as possible.

This library can also be used in the browser with Expo for web.

Universal Props

The same options available on React Native's ActionSheetIOS component exist for both iOS and Android in this library.

iOS Only Props

Name Type Required Default
anchor number No

anchor (optional)

iPad only option that allows for docking the action sheet to a node. See ShowActionSheetButton.tsx for an example on how to implement this.

Android/Web-Only Props

The below props allow modification of the Android ActionSheet. They have no effect on the look on iOS as the native iOS Action Sheet does not have options for modifying these options.

Name Type Required Default
icons array of required images or icons No
tintIcons boolean No true
textStyle TextStyle No
titleTextStyle TextStyle No
messageTextStyle TextStyle No
autoFocus boolean No false
showSeparators boolean No false
containerStyle ViewStyle No
separatorStyle ViewStyle No
useModal boolean No false
destructiveColor string No #d32f2f

icons (optional)

Show icons to go along with each option. If image source paths are provided via require, images will be rendered for you. Alternatively, you can provide an array of elements such as vector icons, pre-rendered Images, etc.

tintIcons (optional)

Icons by default will be tinted to match the text color. When set to false, the icons will be the color of the source image. This is useful if you want to use multicolor icons. If you provide your own nodes/pre-rendered icons rather than required images in the icons array, you will need to tint them appropriately before providing them in the array of icons; tintColor will not be applied to icons unless they are images from a required source.

textStyle (optional)

Apply any text style props to the options. If the tintColor option is provided, it takes precedence over a color text style prop.

titleTextStyle (optional)

Apply any text style props to the title if present.

messageTextStyle (optional)

Apply any text style props to the message if present.

autoFocus: (optional)

If true, will give the first option screen reader focus automatically when the action sheet becomes visible. On iOS, this is the default behavior of the native action sheet.

showSeparators: (optional)

Show separators between items. On iOS, separators always show so this prop has no effect.

containerStyle: (optional)

Apply any view style props to the container rather than use the default look (e.g. dark mode).

separatorStyle: (optional)

Modify the look of the separators rather than use the default look.

useModal: (optional)

Wrap the ActionSheet with a Modal, in order to show in front of other Modals that were already opened (issue reference).

destructiveColor: (optional)

Modify color for text of destructive option.
