tabs{ label: string, badge:string, badgeColor?: string, [string]: any}[]requiredYou don't have to pass this prop directly to tabbar. Istead, it's automatically passed from ScrollableTabView from tabLabel of your page. In defaultTabbar it is used only to pass a label, but we use it to pass there information about badges. Example tabLabel={{label: "Page #4", badge: 8, badgeColor: 'violet'}}. Also you can pass any data you need as it's used as Map
underlineColorstring"navy"Set a color for underline. You can use also transparent to hide underline
underlineHeightnumber2Set a height for underline

class UnderlineTabBarExample extends Component {
  _scrollX = new Animated.Value(0);
  // 6 is a quantity of tabs
  interpolators = Array.from({ length: 6 }, (_, i) => i).map(idx => ({
    scale: this._scrollX.interpolate({
      inputRange: [idx - 1, idx, idx + 1],
      outputRange: [1, 1.2, 1],
      extrapolate: 'clamp',
    opacity: this._scrollX.interpolate({
      inputRange: [idx - 1, idx, idx + 1],

          renderTabBar={() => (
              tabBarStyle={{ backgroundColor: "#fff", borderTopColor: '#d2d2d2', borderTopWidth: 1 }}
              renderTab={(tab, page, isTabActive, onPressHandler, onTabLayout) => (
          onScroll={(x) => this._scrollX.setValue(x)}
          <Page tabLabel={{label: "Hot", icon: iconsSet.hot}} label="Page #1 Hot" text="You can pass your own views to TabBar!"/>
          <Page tabLabel={{label: "Trending", icon: iconsSet.trending}} label="Page #2 Trending" text="Yehoo!!!"/>

          <Page tabLabel={{label: "Sport", icon: iconsSet.sport}} label="Page #6 Sport"/>

Notice! In case of using this tabbar we must pass object into tabLabel property. It is necessary to set labels and badges.
