Step 2: App.js

In this step, You will open the App.js file and put the code.

import React, { useState, createRef } from 'react';
import {
    SafeAreaView,
    StyleSheet,
    TextInput,
    View,
    Text,
    KeyboardAvoidingView,

const App = () => {
    const [userName, setUserName] = useState('');
    const [userEmail, setUserEmail] = useState('');
    const [userAge, setUserAge] = useState('');
    const [userAddress, setUserAddress] = useState('');

    const userNameInputRef = createRef();
    const userEmailInputRef = createRef();
    const userAgeInputRef = createRef();
    const useraddressInputRef = createRef();

    const userRegisterFunction = () => {
        alert('User Registered');
    };

    return (
        <SafeAreaView style={styles.container}>
            <ScrollView keyboardShouldPersistTaps="handled">
