  • When visible prop is changed, the snackbar will be animated in/out of screen
  • The snackbar will not auto-dismiss by itself, for auto-dismiss use setTimeout() and change value passed to prop to false,
    OR you can set autoHidingTime to any particular value to hide the snackbar itself, although you will need to reset visible to false manually after the autoHidingTime period is over, since visible is controlled from outside.
  • This works great together with react-native-fab. See demo for example and instructions how to.
