How to Check a Variable is Undefined in React Native

While developing mobile apps with react native, chances are high that you may come across some scenarios where the value of the variable you declared becomes undefined. So, how to check if a variable is undefined or not in react native as well as JavaScript?

Earlier I have written about how to check undefined property while iterating through JavaScript object. The solution here also is almost similar. You can use typeof JavaScript operator to check the data type of the variable.

Typeof returns data type, that is whether the variable is “undefined”, “object”, “boolean”, “string”, “number”, “function” etc. Hence you can use typeof to check undefined variable as given below:

if (typeof yourVariable === 'undefined'){
//the variable is undefined
} else {
//the variable is not undefined
}

That’s it. That’s how you check a variable is undefined in React Native.
