Frequently Asked Questions

The component is not working as expected

Under the hood react-native-modal uses react-native original Modal component.
Before reporting a bug, try swapping react-native-modal with react-native original Modal component and, if the issue persists, check if it has already been reported as a react-native issue.

Avaliable animations
