React Native form validations with Formik and Yup

A Form is a screen section which allows users to interact with and send controlled/validated informations to a server.

yarn add formik
yarn add yup

The finished Log In screen should look like this:

import * as yup from 'yup'
import { Formik } from 'formik'
import React, {  Fragment } from 'react';
import { SafeAreaView,Button, TextInput,Text,Alert} from 'react-native';

const Login = () => {
  return  <SafeAreaView
             style={{
                 flex:1
             }} 
         >
            <Formik
          
        initialValues={{ email: '', password: '' }}
        onSubmit={values => Alert.alert(JSON.stringify(values))}
        validationSchema={yup.object().shape({
          email: yup
            .string()
            .email()
            .required(),
          password: yup
            .string()
            .matches(
                /^(?=.*[A-Za-z])(?=.*\d)(?=.*[@$!%*#?&])[A-Za-z\d@$!%*#?&]{8,}$/,
                "Must Contain 8 Characters, One Uppercase, One Lowercase, One Number and one special case Character"
              )
            .required(),
        })}
      >
        {({ values, handleChange, errors, setFieldTouched, touched, isValid, handleSubmit }) => (
          <Fragment>
            <TextInput
            style={{margin:10,borderBottomWidth : 1.0,padding:10}}
              value={values.email}
              onChangeText={handleChange('email')}
              onBlur={() => setFieldTouched('email')}
              placeholder="E-mail"
            />
            {touched.email && errors.email &&
              <Text style={{ fontSize: 10, color: 'red',paddingHorizontal:10}}>{errors.email}</Text>
            }
            <TextInput
            style={{margin:10,borderBottomWidth : 1.0,padding:10}}
              value={values.password}
              onChangeText={handleChange('password')}
              placeholder="Password"
              onBlur={() => setFieldTouched('password')}
              secureTextEntry={true}
            />
            {touched.password && errors.password &&
              <Text style={{ fontSize: 10, color: 'red',paddingHorizontal:10}}>{errors.password}</Text>
            }
            <Button
              title='Sign In'
              disabled={!isValid}
              onPress={handleSubmit}
            />
          </Fragment>
        )}
      </Formik>
        </SafeAreaView>
}

export default Login;
