React Native Center Text

Horizontal and Vertical alignment simultaneously

	import React from "react";
import { StyleSheet, Text, View } from "react-native";

<View style={{width: 200, flexDirection: 'row',alignItems: 'center'}}>
     <Text style={{width: '100%',textAlign: 'center'}} />
  • flexDirection controls the direction in which the children of a node are laid out. This is also referred to as the main axis. The cross axis is the axis perpendicular to the main axis.
  • alignItems describes how to align children along the cross axis of their container. It is very similar to justifyContent.
