Box with ref

A Box component with a ref property enables the direct reference and manipulation of the underlying DOM element, offering greater control and flexibility in modifying the box's appearance and behavior within a user interface.
function App() {
const myRef = useRef({})
useEffect(() => {
const styleObj = {
borderWidth: 2,
borderRadius: 4,
borderColor: "#1A91FF",
if (myRef.current && myRef.current.setNativeProps) {
style: styleObj,
}, [myRef])
return <Box h={100} w={100} bg="$primary100" ref={myRef} />


All the components in gluestack-ui are unstyled by default. To customize your UI using the extendedTheme, please refer to this link. The import names of components serve as keys to customize each component.
