Adding a placement

For Rokt partners, the Rokt SDK for React Native can be used to display overlay placements on top of your app’s content.

Before you begin#

Ensure that the Rokt Android SDK has already been integrated into your application following the steps listed here.

Overlay placements#

Importing the SDK#

Import the SDK into your application's JavaScript file:

import { Rokt } from "@rokt/react-native-sdk";

Executing the SDK#

Execute the SDK at the desired point by adding the appropriate customer attributes. The Rokt placement will then display after a short delay that is configurable via the Rokt platform.

You can dictate what customer attributes are included in your Rokt integration. More information on available data fields can be found on the attributes page. If you want to integrate more attributes, you can add additional lines of code for each new attribute to the samples below.

attributes = {  email: "j.smith@example.com",  firstname: "Jenny",  lastname: "Smith",  mobile: "(323) 867-5309",  postcode: "90210",  country: "US",};
Rokt.execute("RoktExperience", attributes, {}, () =>  console.log("Placement Loaded"));
note

The ViewName (“RoktExperience”) can be modified when executing the SDK in multiple locations to display a different experience according to the context of where in the app the SDK is being executed. If modifying the ViewName, work with the Rokt team to ensure matching adjustments are made within the Rokt system.

Embedded placements#

Importing the SDK#

Import the Rokt SDK into the JavaScript file:

import { Rokt, RoktEmbeddedView } from "@rokt/react-native-sdk";

Creating a placeholder reference#

Create a placeholder reference in your JavaScript file:

 constructor(props){    super(props);    this.placeholder1 = React.createRef();  }

Adding RoktEmbeddedView to your view#

Add RoktEmbeddedView into render(). The Rokt embedded placement will be injected into this placeholder when the execute method is called:

<RoktEmbeddedView  ref={this.placeholder1}  placeholderName={"RoktEmbedded1"}></RoktEmbeddedView>

Executing the Rokt React Native SDK#

Execute the SDK at the desired point by sending the appropriate customer attributes. The Rokt placement then display after a short delay that is configurable via the Rokt platform.

You can dictate what customer attributes are included in your Rokt integration. More information on available data fields can be found on the attributes page. If you want to integrate more attributes, you can add additional lines of code for each new attribute to the samples below.

placeholders = {  RoktEmbedded1: findNodeHandle(this.placeholder1.current),};
attributes = {  email: "j.smith@example.com",  firstname: "Jenny",  lastname: "Smith",  mobile: "(323) 867-5309",  postcode: "90210",  country: "US",};Rokt.execute("RoktEmbeddedExperience", attributes, placeholders, () =>  console.log("Placement Loaded"));
note

The ViewName (“RoktEmbeddedExperience”) can be modified when executing the SDK in multiple locations. This configuration allows you to display a different experience according to the context of where in the app the SDK is being executed. If modifying the ViewName, please work with the Rokt team to ensure matching adjustments are made within the Rokt system.
