Facing the <Icon> issue/warning while executing a SNAPSHOT TEST for 'App.tsx' for our EXPO CLI project which leading to fail ci pipelines. Happens in case when assigned a dynamic path to <TextInput.Icon>

Hi Team,

I am facing the following issue while executed a SNAPSHOT TEST for ‘App.tsx’ for our react native project. Where the test passes with the below-mentioned errors.

Warning: React.createElement: type is invalid – expected a string (for built-in components) or a class/function (for composite components) but got: object. You likely forgot to export your component from the file it’s defined in, or you might have mixed up default and named imports.

console.error

Check the render method of `Icon`.

Consider adding an error boundary to your tree to customize error handling behavior.
Visit https://reactjs.org/link/error-boundaries to learn more about error boundaries.

_**NOTE**_: I have replaced our project root details with '<projectRoot>'

CURRENTLY - The mentioned error/warning popping always when the snapshot tests are executed where the snapshot tests pass but due to warnings, the pipeline fails and thus blocks the build.

CODE BLOCK:
From file 1:

<Avatar.Icon style={{ backgroundColor: “#00C33F” }} color={"#FFFFFF"} icon=“check” />

From file 2:

<TextInput
mode={“flat”}
style={styles.inputStyle}
underlineColor={errors.email ? colors.underline : colors.accent}
theme={{ fonts: { regular: fonts.medium }, colors: errors.email ? { placeholder: colors.textRed } : { text: colors.textBlack } }}
label=“E-mail”
left={<TextInput.Icon name=“email-outline” color={colors.accent} />}
onBlur={onBlur}
value={value}
onChangeText={text => onChange(text)}
keyboardType={“email-address”}
returnKeyType={“done”}
blurOnSubmit={true}
onSubmitEditing={handleSubmit(onSendCode)}
/>

When commented on the mentioned line/s or code above it stops throwing the mentioned error.

Requests to suggest a fix.
