InputAccessoryView

A component which enables customization of the keyboard input accessory view on iOS. The input accessory view is displayed above the keyboard whenever a TextInput has focus. This component can be used to create custom toolbars.
To use this component wrap your custom toolbar with the InputAccessoryView component, and set a nativeID. Then, pass that nativeID as the inputAccessoryViewID of whatever TextInput you desire. A simple example:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { View, ScrollView, AppRegistry, TextInput, InputAccessoryView, Button } from 'react-native';

export default class UselessTextInput extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = {text: 'Placeholder Text'};
  }

  render() {
    const inputAccessoryViewID = "uniqueID";
    return (
      <View>
        <ScrollView keyboardDismissMode="interactive">
          <TextInput
            style={{
              padding: 10,
              paddingTop: 50,
            }}
            inputAccessoryViewID={inputAccessoryViewID}
            onChangeText={text => this.setState({text})}
            value={this.state.text}
          />
        </ScrollView>
        <InputAccessoryView nativeID={inputAccessoryViewID}>
          <Button
            onPress={() => this.setState({text: 'Placeholder Text'})}
            title="Reset Text"
          />
        </InputAccessoryView>
      </View>
    );
  }
}

// skip this line if using Create React Native App
AppRegistry.registerComponent('AwesomeProject', () => UselessTextInput);

This component can also be used to create sticky text inputs (text inputs which are anchored to the top of the keyboard). To do this, wrap a TextInput with the InputAccessoryView component, and don't set a nativeID. For an example, look at InputAccessoryViewExample.js.
