If you want to create a picker component with a prompt message in React Native then this is the right place to look for.

The Picker component will be removed from react native core and hence install Picker from react native community using the following command.

npm install @react-native-picker/picker --save


yarn add @react-native-picker/picker

import React, {useState} from 'react';
import {View} from 'react-native';
import {Picker} from '@react-native-picker/picker';

const App = () => {
  const [language, setlanguage] = useState('java');
  return (
        style={{height: 50, width: 200}}
        prompt="Choose Language"
        onValueChange={(itemValue, itemIndex) => setlanguage(itemValue)}>
        <Picker.Item label="Java" value="java" />
        <Picker.Item label="JavaScript" value="js" />
