Vertical scrollbar of FlatList not correctly vertically aligned

As reported in #26610 but now following the issue template as discussed with @safaiyeh and @hramos


The vertical scrollbar of a FlatList does not always render correctly to the right side of the screen. See all the screenshots in this issue.

For me. This happened even when I slimmed down my code into a <FlatList /> with only <Text />. It only happened though when my list was longer than the height of the screen. The scrollbar then suddenly moves to the left. The longer the list, the further the scrollbar moves to the left.

Also another condition for me. Upon a fresh first render of my <FlatList />, this behaviour appeared. When navigating away, effectively unmounting this component, and back, the scrollbar is suddenly OK. Close and open the app: The scrollbar is at the wrong position again.

  1. Copying these additional details from the other issue in hopes it helps others:

    • This bug only occurs on iOS 13
    • This bug only occurs when a FlatList or ScrollView is scrolling into an “inset” area

    The current workaround with the most 👍 is adding the prop scrollIndicatorInsets={{ right: 1 }} to your FlatList or ScrollView. (thanks @sbycrosz)
