Hello Friends,

Welcome To Infinitbility!

The simplest way of scroll to position in react native using ScrollView ref.


The simplest way of auto-scroll store scrolled position on our state and use in the vertical and horizontal auto-scroll.

but how it is possible auto-scroll in react native?

for auto-scroll, we are use scrollView as a ref, and ScrollView provides scrollTo function for scrolling on any position in a scroll view.

First Create Refs on Class

Refs provide a way to access DOM nodes or React elements created in the render method. ~ from the react-native document

1class MyComponent extends React.Component {
2 constructor(props) {
3 super(props);
4 this.ScrollView = React.createRef();
5 }

Store scrolled height and width on state

State generally use in react-native to store data.

2 showsVerticalScrollIndicator={false}
3 // define ref
4 ref={ref => (this.ScrollView = ref)}
5 // use for store scrolled value
6 onScroll={event =>
7 this.setState({horizontalScroll:event.nativeEvent.contentOffset.x, VerticalScroll:event.nativeEvent.contentOffset.y})
8 }
10// Your list data

Use ScrollView ref to scroll to a destination position

1// auto scroll function
4 // X use for horizontal
5 let horizontalScroll = this.state.horizontalScroll;
7 // Y use for Vertical
8 let VerticalScroll = this.state.VerticalScroll;
10 this.ScrollView.scrollTo({x: horizontalScroll, y: VerticalScroll, animated: true});
