Note

This widget is not based on the 'famous' React Native widget @fawazahmed/react-native-read-more as an implementation of that led to some performance issues, and it was decided to do a more simplistic implementation.

Only place text here as a too big element could break the display

 

Technically Note

The widget calculates the height of the closed text and open height by rendering it off-screen and using that as closed and open height. Adding a lot to a page on a slow device could have a performance hit (O(n))
