Pressable - Updated version of Touchable

Pressable component is an updated and advanced version of touchable and it's recommended to use pressable instead of Touchable.

The Pressable is a wrapper component used to make other components responsive to the user's touch. Useful for creating custom buttons or custom touchable containers.

Adding a Pressable component

To add a Pressable on the screen:

  • Select the Pressable component from the Components drawer. You can open the list of components by clicking the + button next to Components.
  • Select the added component in the Components tree.
  • Add a nested component to make Pressable appear as a container.

Here is an example below where an Image component is nested inside a Pressable component. Then, on the Pressable component, the Open Image Picker action via the Interactions tab (last tab) from the Properties Panel is added to open the device's media library when a user taps on the Image.
