Automation for React Native Apps

To build automations for Reach Native apps, you can use the React Native Demo App for iOS to learn how to make specific components automatable.

Prerequisites

Prepare the Environment

For this example, the TouchableOpacity component is being used to automate touch-based input. You can set other views as accessible as the behavior will be similar with the TouchableOpacity component.

  1. Download the React Native Demo App for iOS.
  2. Configure an iOS application in Mobile Device Manager using the React Native Demo App for iOS.
  3. Start the application in Mobile Device Manager.
  4. Use the interaction bar right next to the device emulator to record the action so you can import them directly in Studio (see Import Recorded Actions).


Building Automation for React Native Apps

In this example, we use the React Native Demo App for iOS to configure specific properties to make components automatable.

Accessibility properties

Setting this property to true indicates the view as an accessibility element. Accessibility set to true makes an element automatable. All touchable components are accessible by default (see React Native Accessibility).
<View accessible={true}>
  <Text>text one</Text>
  <Text>text two</Text>
</View><View accessible={true}>
  <Text>text one</Text>
  <Text>text two</Text>
</View>

Property

Type

Description

accessible

bool

  • `{true

testID

string

  • 'any text' Ungroups this component from its parent making it individually automatable.

Makes the component automatable despite its parent accessibility status (true or false).

  • not mentioned Component is treated accordingly to its parent accessibility status

Mobile automation sample

Use the following mobile automation sample as a starting point to building the automation according to your requirements. Alternatively, you can use Mobile Device Manager to record steps and then import them to Studio.
