Transparent Modal Example

See this example here.

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { Text, View, StyleSheet, Button, Modal } from 'react-native';
import { Constants } from 'expo';

export default class App extends Component {
  state = {
    modalVisible: false,
  };
  
  _handleButtonPress = () => {
    this.setModalVisible(true);
  };

  setModalVisible = (visible) => {
    this.setState({modalVisible: visible});
  }
  
  render() {
    var modalBackgroundStyle = {
      backgroundColor: 'rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5)'
    };
    var innerContainerTransparentStyle = {backgroundColor: '#fff', padding: 20};
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
      <Modal
          animationType='fade'
          transparent={true}
          visible={this.state.modalVisible}
          onRequestClose={() => this.setModalVisible(false)}
          >
          <View style={[styles.container, modalBackgroundStyle]}>
            <View style={innerContainerTransparentStyle}>
              <Text>This is a modal</Text>
              <Button title='close'
                onPress={this.setModalVisible.bind(this, false)}/>
            </View>
          </View>
        </Modal>
        <Button
          title="Press me"
          onPress={this._handleButtonPress}
        />
      
      </View>
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    paddingTop: Constants.statusBarHeight,
    backgroundColor: '#ecf0f1',
  }
});
