Blur View

A component that blurs everything underneath the it

A Blur View component is placed adjacent to the Component whose content you want to blur. It also wraps children components such as Text. The content of a child component on a Blur View will be displayed above to the adjacent component.

In the example below, there is an Image Background component in the Components tree. Next to it, is the Blur View that wraps a Text component.

Adding a Blur View

  • Add the component whose content you want to blur in the Components tree. (In the example below, we're using the Image Background component.)
  • Select the Blur View component from the Components drawer. You can open the list of components by clicking the + button next to Components.
  • Then, add one or more child components whose content you want to display over the blurred view.
  • Additionally, in Styles tab (first tab) from Properties Panel, set the Position property of the Blur View to absolute and Top: 0, Bottom: 0, Right: 0, Left: 0.
  • If you want to blur effect to take over the whole screen (such as used in the example below), make sure to add a property of Flex: 1 under Layout > Selected Item > Flex.
  • Add the value for the child component of the Blur View.

To see the effect, go to one of the Preview modes (Web, iOS, or Android) to see the effect.

Style Properties

Style properties allow you to customize the look and feel of the component. Combinations of styles applied to components can be saved as Stylesheets to easily reuse styles throughout your app. Styles can also be set dynamically using Variables. To learn more about all the different styling properties and how they work, take a look at Intro to Styling.
