React Native – Flatlist Single Select

I’ve been searching around how to make a single select in Flatlist but I can’t find any, here in my code I’am trying to make a single select on every cells that is inside my Flatlist.

Example: I select cell no.1, then no.1 will be selected. And if I need to select no.2, both no.1 and no.2 will be selected.

What is happening in my code is when I select no.1, it would select all cells.

export default class Dishes extends Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super (props)
        this.state = {
            data: [],
            id: [],
            price: [],
            count: 0,
            SplOrder: '',
            tbl: this.props.navigation.state.params.tbl,
            orderDet: this.props.navigation.state.params.orderDet,
            DineIn: this.props.navigation.state.params.DineIn,
            TakeOut: this.props.navigation.state.params.TakeOut,
        }
    }

/********************EDIT*************************
_incrementCount() {
    this.setState({ count: this.state.count + 1 });
}
_decreaseCount() {
    this.setState({ count: this.state.count - 1 });
}
changeTextHandler() {
    this.setState({ ['count'+index]: text });
};

    _renderItem = ({ item, index }) => {
        return (

                <View>
                    <View>

                        />

                        <Text>Send Order</Text>
                    </TouchableOpacity>
                </View>
            </View>
        )
    }
}

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

The TextInputs are targeting the same state SplOrder so, if you change it in any TextInput the others will display the same. The solution I see is to put an state for each item you create.
You should do this:

                    <TextInput
                        placeholder = "Insert Special Request"
                        onChangeText = { (text) => this.setState({ ['SplOrder'+index]: text }) }
                        value = { this.state['SplOrder'+index] }
                    />

The second problem we have discussed in the comments should be fixed by passing index parameter to incrementCount function.

Hi, now in the method _incrementCount() you will have to pass the index and increment each count with it index as you have in the value of. So you could do

<TouchableOpacity
    onPress = {() => this._incrementCount(index)}>
    <Text> + </Text>
</TouchableOpacity>

And then change your _incrementCount method adding a parameter and doing like this:

_incrementCount(index) {
    this.setState({ ['count'+index]: this.state['count'+index] + 1 });
}

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
