Setting focus on the next TextInput when a user uses Autofill can be achieved by using the onContentSizeChange or onChangeText events and the ref attribute in React Native. Here's an example of how to do it:

  1. Create Refs: First, create a ref for each of your TextInput elements. We will use these refs to programmatically focus on the next TextInput.
jsx
import React, { useRef } from 'react'; import { View, TextInput, StyleSheet } from 'react-native'; const YourComponent = () => { const firstTextInputRef = useRef(null); const secondTextInputRef = useRef(null); const thirdTextInputRef = useRef(null); // ... rest of your component };
  1. Use Refs on TextInputs: Assign the ref attribute to each TextInput, corresponding to the refs created earlier.
jsx
const YourComponent = () => { const firstTextInputRef = useRef(null); const secondTextInputRef = useRef(null); const thirdTextInputRef = useRef(null); return ( <View style={styles.container}> <TextInput ref={firstTextInputRef} style={styles.textInput} placeholder="First TextInput" // Other TextInput props /> <TextInput ref={secondTextInputRef} style={styles.textInput} placeholder="Second TextInput" // Other TextInput props /> <TextInput ref={thirdTextInputRef} style={styles.textInput} placeholder="Third TextInput" // Other TextInput props /> </View> ); }; const styles = StyleSheet.create({ container: { flex: 1, justifyContent: 'center', alignItems: 'center', }, textInput: { borderWidth: 1, borderColor: 'gray', padding: 10, marginVertical: 10, width: 200, }, });
  1. Focus on Next TextInput: Use the onContentSizeChange or onChangeText event on each TextInput to detect when the user fills the input, and programmatically focus on the next TextInput.
jsx
const YourComponent = () => { const firstTextInputRef = useRef(null); const secondTextInputRef = useRef(null); const thirdTextInputRef = useRef(null); const handleFirstTextInputChange = (text) => { // Handle any logic you need for the first TextInput // ... // Then focus on the second TextInput if (text.length > 0) { secondTextInputRef.current.focus(); } }; const handleSecondTextInputChange = (text) => { // Handle any logic you need for the second TextInput // ... // Then focus on the third TextInput if (text.length > 0) { thirdTextInputRef.current.focus(); } }; // ... rest of your component };

Now, when the user fills in the first TextInput using Autofill or manually, the focus will automatically move to the second TextInput. Similarly, when the user fills in the second TextInput, the focus will move to the third TextInput. You can adjust the logic inside the handleFirstTextInputChange and handleSecondTextInputChange functions to suit your specific needs.
