react-native-masked-text

react-native-masked-text

This is a simple masked text (normal text and input text) component for React-Native.

Thanks to vanilla-masker =). Thanks to moment =).

Supported Versions

React-native: 0.32.0 or higher

Install

npm install react-native-masked-text --save

Usage (TextInputMask)

import React, { Component } from 'react'
 
// import the component
import { TextInputMask } from 'react-native-masked-text'
 
export default class MyComponent extends Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props)
    }
 
    isValid() {
        // isValid method returns if the inputed value is valid.
        // Ex: if you input 40/02/1990 30:20:20, it will return false
        //    because in this case, the day and the hour is invalid.
        let valid = this.refs['myDateText'].isValid()
 
        // get converted value. Using type=datetime, it returns the moment object.
        // If it's using type=money, it returns a Number object.
        let rawValue = this.refs['myDateText'].getRawValue()
    }
 
    render() {
        // the type is required but options is required only for some specific types.
        return (
            <TextInputMask
                ref={'myDateText'}
                type={'datetime'}
                options={{
                    format: 'DD-MM-YYYY HH:mm:ss'
                }}
            />
        )
    }
}

Props

type

credit-card: use the mask 9999 9999 9999 9999. It accepts options (see later in this doc).
cpf: use the mask 999.999.999-99 and numeric keyboard.
cnpj: use the mask 99.999.999/9999-99 and numeric keyboard.
zip-code: use the mask 99999-999 and numeric keyboard.
only-numbers: accept only numbers on field with numeric keyboard.
money: use the mask R$ 0,00 on the field with numeric keyboard. It accepts options (see later in this doc).
cel-phone: use the mask (99) 9999-9999 or (99) 99999-9999 (changing automaticaly by length). It accepts options (see later in this doc).
datetime: use datetime mask with moment format (default DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm:ss). It accepts options (see later in this doc).
custom: use your custom mask (see the options props later in this doc).

onChangeText

Invoked after new value applied to mask.

/**
 * @param {String} text the text AFTER mask is applied.
*/
onChangeText(text) {
    // ...
}
 
<TextInputMask
    type={'only-numbers'}
    onChangeText={this.onChangeText.bind(this)} />

checkText

Allow you to check and prevent value to be inputed.

/**
 * @param {String} previous the previous text in the masked field.
 * @param {String} next the next text that will be setted to field.
 * @return {Boolean} return true if must accept the value.
*/
checkText(previous, next) {
    return next === 'your valid value or other boolean condition';
}
 
<TextInputMask
    type={'only-numbers'}
    checkText={this.checkText.bind(this)} />

customTextInput

You can use this prop if you want custom text input instead native TextInput component:

const Textfield = MKTextField.textfield()
    .withPlaceholder('Text...')
    .withStyle(styles.textfield)
    .build()
 
;<TextInputMask
    ref={'myDateText'}
    type={'money'}
    style={styles.input}
    customTextInput={Textfield}
    placeholder="Enter text to see events"
/>

customTextInputProps

Some custom inputs like react-native-textinput-effects have to set properties in mount time. For these types of components we use this property.

import React from 'react'
import { StyleSheet, View } from 'react-native'
 
import { TextInputMask } from 'react-native-masked-text'
import { Kaede } from 'react-native-textinput-effects'
 
export default class App extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props)
 
        this.state = {
            birthday: ''
        }
    }
 
    render() {
        return (
            <View style={styles.container}>
                <TextInputMask
                    ref={'myDateText'}
                    // here we set the custom component and their props.
                    customTextInput={Kaede}
                    customTextInputProps={{
                        style: { width: '80%' },
                        label: 'Birthday'
                    }}
                    type={'datetime'}
                    options={{
                        format: 'DD-MM-YYYY HH:mm:ss'
                    }}
                    // don't forget: the value and state!
                    onChangeText={birthday => this.setState({ birthday })}
                    value={this.state.birthday}
                />
            </View>
        )
    }
}
 
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
    container: {
        flex: 1,
        backgroundColor: '#fff',
        alignItems: 'center',
        justifyContent: 'center'
    }
})

TextInput Props

You can use the native props of TextInput, with this in mind:

  • onChangeText is intercepted by component.
  • value is intercepted by component.
  • if you pass keyboardType, it will override the keyboardType of masked component.

TextInput Methods

If you want to use the methods of the native TextInput, use the getElement() method:

export default class App extends React.Component {
    onGoFocus() {
        // when you call getElement method, the instance of native TextInput will returned.
        this.refs['myText'].getElement().focus()
    }
 
    render() {
        return (
            <View style={styles.container}>
                <View>
                    <TextInputMask
                        ref="myText"
                        type={'only-numbers'}
                        style={styles.input}
                    />
                </View>
                <View>
                    <Button
                        onPress={this.onGoFocus.bind(this)}
                        title="Go Focus Hue"
                        color="#841584"
                    />
                </View>
            </View>
        )
    }
}

Options

Some types accept options, use it like this: <TextInputMask type={'money'} options={{ unit: 'US$' }} />

For type={'money'}

  • options={...} _ precision (Number, default 2): the decimal places. _ separator (String, default ','): the decimal separator. _ delimiter (String, default '.'): the thousand separator. _ unit: (String, default 'R$'): the prefix text. _ suffixUnit (String, default ''): the suffix text. _ zeroCents (Boolean, default false): if must show cents.

For type={'cel-phone'}

  • options={...} _ withDDD (Boolean, default true): if the ddd will be include in the mask. _ dddMask (String, default '(99) '): the default mask applied if withDDD is true.

For type={'datetime'}

  • options={...} _ format (String, default DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm:ss): moment date format. It accepts the following: _ DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm:ss _ DD/MM/YYYY _ MM/DD/YYYY _ YYYY/MM/DD _ HH:mm:ss _ HH:mm _ HH * You can use all of dates with - instead of / if you want

For type={'custom'}

  • options={...}

                return val;
            }
 
            // if returns null, undefined or '' (empty string), the value will be ignored.
            return null;
        },
        // in this case, we will override build-in * translation (allow all characters)
        // and set this to allow only blank spaces and some special characters.

}

For type={'credit-card'}

  • options={...} * obfuscated (Boolean, default false): if the mask must be 9999 **** **** 9999

Methods

  • getElement(): return the instance of TextInput component.
  • isValid(): if the value inputed is valid for the mask. * credit-card: return true if the mask is complete. * cpf: return true if the mask is complete and cpf is valid. * cnpj: return true if the mask is complete and cnpj is valid. * zip-code: return true if the mask is complete. * only-numbers: always returns true. * money: always returns true. * cel-phone: return true if the mask is complete. * datetime: return true if the date value is valid for format. * custom: use custom validation, if it not exist, always returns true.
  • getRawValue(): get the converted value of mask. * credit-card: return the array with the value parts. Ex: 1234 1234 1234 1234 returns [1234, 1234, 1234, 1234]. * cpf: return the value without mask. * cnpj: return the value without mask. * zip-code: return the value without mask. * only-numbers: return the value without mask. * money: return the Number value. Ex: R$ 1.234,56 returns 1234.56. * cel-phone: return the value without mask. * datetime: return the moment object for the date and format. * custom: use custom method (passed in options). If it not exists, returns the current value.

Usage (TextMask)

import React, { Component } from 'react'
 
// import the component
import { TextMask } from 'react-native-masked-text'
 
export default class MyComponent extends Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props)
        this.state = {
            text: '4567123409871234'
        }
    }
 
    render() {
        // the type is required but options is required only for some specific types.
        // the sample below will output 4567 **** **** 1234
        return (
            <TextMask
                value={this.state.text}
                type={'credit-card'}
                options={{
                    obfuscated: true
                }}
            />
        )
    }
}

Props

The same of TextInputMask, but for React-Native Text component instead TextInput.
Warning: if the value not match the mask, it will not appear.

Methods

getElement(): return the instance of Text component.

Extra (MaskService)

If you want, we expose the MaskService. You can use it:

Methods

  • static toMask(type, value, settings): mask a value. _ type (String, required): the type of the mask (cpf, datetime, etc...) _ value (String, required): the value to be masked * settings (Object, optional): if the mask type accepts options, pass it in the settings parameter
  • static isValid(type, value, settings): validate if the mask and the value match. _ type (String, required): the type of the mask (cpf, datetime, etc...) _ value (String, required): the value to be masked * settings (Object, optional): if the mask type accepts options, pass it in the settings parameter

Ex:

import { MaskService } from 'react-native-masked-text'
 
var money = MaskService.toMask('money', '123', {
    unit: 'US$',
    separator: '.',
    delimiter: ','
})
 
// money -> US$ 1.23
