React-Native Height and Width


In React Native, to get the height and width of a component, we can use the height and width style properties:

import { StyleSheet } from 'react-native';

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    height: 100,
    width: 200,


import React from 'react';
import { View } from 'react-native';

export default function MyComponent() {
  return (
    <View style={{ height: 100, width: 200, backgroundColor: 'red' }}>
      {/* ... */}


The resulting component rendered by the above code will have a height of 100 and a width of 200, with a red background.


In React Native, height and width are style properties that can be applied to a View or any other component that supports styles. These properties specify the dimensions of a component.


height and width can be used whenever we need to specify the dimensions of a component in a React Native app.

Some examples where height and width can be used include:

  • Sizing images and icons
  • Setting the dimensions of a container View
  • Resizing buttons, text inputs, and other form elements

Important Points

  • The dimensions specified using height and width are in "density-independent pixels" (dp or dip). This allows our app to look consistent across different screen sizes and densities.
  • We can also use percentage values (e.g. height: '50%') to set the height and width of a component relative to its parent container.
  • Components with a flex value can also have their height and width set using the flexBasis property.


height and width are essential styling properties in React Native that allow us to specify the dimensions of components. By using these properties, we can create layouts that look and feel consistent across a wide range of device screen sizes and densities.
