Not getting IntelliSense in Visual Studio Code for React Native

I am trying to code a React Native application in Visual Studio Code. But I found that the hint for React Native for Styles element didn’t show when I code. I already installed:

 ES7+ React/Redux/React-Native snippets
 React Native Tools
 Simple React Snippets

Here is the example when I type flex. It is supposed to show a list of styles element related to flex but it didn’t. Is anyone know how to enable it? Here is a screenshot:

enter image description here

Here is my settings.json file

    "java.home": "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_211",
    "": "gettingStarted",
    "editor.suggestSelection": "first",
    "vsintellicode.modify.editor.suggestSelection": "automaticallyOverrodeDefaultValue",

I solved this problem by following this post:

VsCode Intellisense react native not working

Which is installing this npm package into your project. By entering this command inside the terminal window of your VS Code:

npm install --save @types/react-native

Thanks for the help!
