Sometimes, instead of rendering certain parts of your component in the editor, you may want to just render a placeholder image. For example, the maps component renders a static placeholder image instead of the actual maps component in the editor. See "Component Rendering" for more information on how to render a placeholder image in the editor.

Using Images in Your Component

Inside a component's manifest, one of the Adalo datatypes you can use is the image datatype.

In order to use images in Adalo, you must import and use the Image component provided by React Native instead of React's <img> tag.

Use this example and React Native's documentation for reference:

// index.js
import React, { Component } from "react";
import { Image } from "react-native";
class MyComponent extends Component {
render() {
const { image } = this.props;
return <Image style={{ height: 100, width: 100 }} source={image} />;

Image components will only render if both width and height are specified. img tags will not render in the application preview.
