Portal allows rendering a component at a different place in the parent tree. You can use it to render content which should appear above other elements, similar to Modal. It requires a Portal.Host component to be rendered somewhere in the parent tree. Note that if you're using the Provider component, this already includes a Portal.Host.


import * as React from 'react';
import { Portal, Text } from 'react-native-paper';

const MyComponent = () => (
    <Text>This is rendered at a different place</Text>

export default MyComponent;


Type: React.ReactNode

Content of the Portal.

Static properties

These properties can be accessed on Portal by using the dot notation, e.g. Portal.Host.
