The Text component is one of the most common React Native components — we use it whenever we need to display text in our app.

This component can be nested and it can inherit properties from parent to child. This can be useful in many ways. We will show you example of capitalizing the first letter, styling words or parts of the text, etc.

React Native Text example

import React, { Component } from "react";
import { Text, StyleSheet } from "react-native";

class ReactNativeText extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      titleText: "Infinitbility",
      bodyText: "We have the ability to build infinite way for us."

  render() {
    return (
      <Text style={styles.baseText}>
        <Text style={styles.titleText} onPress={this.onPressTitle}>
        <Text numberOfLines={5}>{this.state.bodyText}</Text>

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  baseText: {
    fontFamily: "Cochin",
    padding: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
  titleText: {
    fontSize: 20,
    fontWeight: "bold"
