How to add dynamic image source in react native

July 27, 2020

In react native, we can add one local image to an Image component using a source props :

<Image source={require("./images/logo.png")} />

But, if we want to add the image path dynamically, it doesn’t work :

<Image source={require(`./images/${props.image}.png`)} />

It will throw one error.

To solve this problem, we can use one switch-case block :

const getImage = name => {
  switch (name) {
    case "logo":
      return require("../../images/logo.png")
    default:
      return require("../../images/thumbnail.png")
  }
}
