The Reshaped type scale includes various styles that support both expressive and application font sizes. Each style is represented by font size, line-height, font-weight, and font-family values. All these values come from the design tokens defined in the theme.

Text component comes with a color property that lets you use design token values.

<View>
  <Text>Neutral</Text>
  <Text color="neutral-faded">Neutral faded</Text>
  <Text color="positive">Positive</Text>
  <Text color="warning">Warning</Text>
  <Text color="critical">Critical</Text>
  <Text color="primary">Primary</Text>
  <Text color="disabled">Disabled</Text>
</View>

By default, all font tokens come with a default font-weight that can be customised through theming. When working with featured, body and caption fonts – you might still want to format the text, so you can use the weight property to change the default value.

<Text variant="body-2" weight="bold">
  Body 2 bold
</Text>

Text can be truncated with the maxLines property:

<View width="200px">
  <Text variant="body-3" maxLines={2}>

  • Colors used by the color property only pick values with foreground roles to achieve a 4.5:1 contrast ratio with backgrounds.
