Bottom tabs support it with unmountOnBlur option in React Navigation 5
you can do this by listening to navigation events. also, we automatically use removeClippedSubviews to save resources. we don't have any plans to automatically unmount tabs entirely, this feels like a userspace concern
@Brent Vatne: isn’t this like a mirror for the lazy property? I want to return tabs to the lazy state, for performance reasons.
I’m happy to do this in userspace, but it’s not obvious how, if you have a recipe for it somewhere in the docs, I’d be satisfied!
@Frederic Barthelemy: yeah i suppose it is. actually i suppose this might not be such a bad idea to integrate as it is pretty low-cost to maintain. not sure what to call the property but if you submit a PR to implement it i'd be happy to review
This would be lovely it could deliver more control and performance.
