Step 1: Download Project


In the first step run the following command to create a project.

expo init ExampleApp

Step 2: Installation and Setup

In this step, You will open the HomeScreen.js file and put the code.

Screens/HomeScreen.js

import React from 'react';

import { StyleSheet, Text, View, Button } from 'react-native';

const HomeScreen = (props) => {

const gotoTestStackScreen = () => {

props.navigation.navigate('Test');

};

return (

}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({

container: {

flex: 1,

justifyContent: 'center',

alignItems: 'center',

},

text: {

fontSize: 20,

marginBottom: 10,

},

});

export default HomeScreen;

Step 4: CartScreen.js

Step 7: App.js

In this step, You will open the App.js file and put the code.

import * as React from 'react';

import { NavigationContainer } from '@react-navigation/native';

import { createStackNavigator } from '@react-navigation/stack';

import { createMaterialBottomTabNavigator } from '@react-navigation/material-bottom-tabs';

import Icon from 'react-native-vector-icons/Ionicons';

import HomeScreen from './Screens/HomeScreen';

import CartScreen from './Screens/CartScreen';

import ImageScreen from './Screens/ImageScreen';

import TestScreen from './Screens/TestScreen';

const Tab = createMaterialBottomTabNavigator();

const MyTabs = () => {

return (

<Tab.Navigator>

<Tab.Screen

name="Home"

component={HomeScreen}

options={{

tabBarIcon:({ color,focused }) => (

<Icon name='home' size={focused ? 25 : 20} color={color} />

),

}}

/>

<Tab.Screen

name="Cart"

component={CartScreen}

options={{

tabBarIcon:({ focused, color }) => (

<Icon name='cart' size={focused ? 25 : 20} color={color} />

),

}}

/>

<Tab.Screen

name="Images"

component={ImageScreen}

options={{

tabBarIcon:({ focused, color }) => (

<Icon name='images' size={focused ? 25 : 20} color={color} />

),

}}

/>

</Tab.Navigator>

);

}

const Stack = createStackNavigator();

const App = () => {

return (

<NavigationContainer>

<Stack.Navigator

initialRouteName="Tabs"

screenOptions={{

headerTitle:'Logo',

}}

>

<Stack.Screen

name="Test"

component={TestScreen}

options={{

headerShown: true,

headerTitle:'Test',

}}

/>

<Stack.Screen name="Tabs" component={MyTabs} />

</Stack.Navigator>

</NavigationContainer>

);

}

export default App;
