# How to handle the error “Text strings must be rendered within a <Text> component” in ReactNative?

React NativeJavascriptMobile Development

While developing your app you can come across the error as stated above. Here is the code that gives the error −

## Example

import React from "react";
import { Image , Text, View, StyleSheet } from "react-native";
export default class App extends React.Component {
render() {
return (
<View style={styles.container}>
<Image
style={styles.stretch}
source={{
uri:
'https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/486929358120964097/gNLINY67_400x400.png ',
}}
/>
</View>
);
}
}
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
container: {
},
stretch: {
width: 200,
height: 200,
resizeMode: 'stretch',
},
});

The error displayed on the screen is as follows −

The error comes for the following reasons. Make sure you avoid those mistakes while coding in your app.

The first cause for the error is because of bad indentation. It is very necessary that each component is indented properly. The child elements are indented properly inside the parent component.

The second case is because of spaces left at the end of each component. Remove the spaces from the end of the screen and compile again. It will work fine. Please be careful when copy pasting the code from another source. You will encounter this error mostly in those cases.

Let us now correct the code and check the output again.

## Example

import React from "react";
import { Image , Text, View, StyleSheet } from "react-native";
export default class App extends React.Component {
render() {
return (
<View style={styles.container}>
<Image style={styles.stretch} source={{uri:
'https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/486929358120964097/gNLINY67_400x400.png
'}} />
</View>
);
}
}
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
container: {
});
