When to use Flat List or scroll view?

Suppose we have to render a list of items from an array or list which has a big data then we will sue the Flat List

If the render data is less and then we can go with Scroll View


The FlatList component displays a scrolling list of changing, but similarly structured, data. FlatList works well for long lists of data, where the number of items might change over time. Unlike the more generic ScrollView, the FlatList only renders elements that are currently showing on the screen, not all the elements at once.

The FlatList component requires two props: data and renderItemdata is the source of information for the list. renderItem takes one item from the source and returns a formatted component to render



How do you handle element size in React Native?

In react native all dimensions are unit less, and represents density independent pixels by setting fixed height and width to look same on different size devices. But some times we have to display our component on the percentage based, in that case using the percentage on component is not spotted indirect native, but react native does give a dimension module which can be used to give width in percentage based on mobile devices.

The React Native Platform Module is used to detect the platform of the device in which the application is running
