react-native and for a component I need to replace the default image of the SliderIOS component with a custom one. Is there any way of accomplishing this or should I create a custom slider component? (I don't have any experience in this.)
I have already tried embedding an image as a child of the slider as well as the vice-versa approach, however non of them have worked.
Looking at the source code for RCTSliderManager, we can see that it only exposes
maximumTrackTintColor. That means like it looks like you're out of luck. You could use the RCTSlider and RCTSliderManager files as a starting point for a custom component, or you could create a pull request to expose
setThumbImage on UISlider.
I have created a pull request fixing this issue which hopefully gets accepted.
