Example#


function Example() {
  let [action, setAction] = React.useState();

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup onAction={setAction}>
        <Item key="add">Add</Item>
        <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
        <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Action: {action}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [action, setAction] = React.useState();

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup onAction={setAction}>
        <Item key="add">Add</Item>
        <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
        <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Action: {action}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [
    action,
    setAction
  ] = React.useState();

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        onAction={
          setAction
        }>
        <Item key="add">
          Add
        </Item>
        <Item key="delete">
          Delete
        </Item>
        <Item key="edit">
          Edit
        </Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>
        Action: {action}
      </p>
    </>
  );
}

Content#


ActionGroups accept a list of Item elements as children, each with a key prop. Alternatively, a function that returns Item elements is also supported. See the collection components docs for more details about this API.

const items = [
  {label: 'React', name: 'React'},
  {label: 'Add', name: 'Add'},
  {label: 'Delete', name: 'Delete'}
];

<ActionGroup items={items}>
  {(item) => <Item key={item.name}>{item.label}</Item>}
</ActionGroup>
const items = [
  {label: 'React', name: 'React'},
  {label: 'Add', name: 'Add'},
  {label: 'Delete', name: 'Delete'}
];

<ActionGroup items={items}>
  {(item) => <Item key={item.name}>{item.label}</Item>}
</ActionGroup>
const items = [
  {
    label: 'React',
    name: 'React'
  },
  {
    label: 'Add',
    name: 'Add'
  },
  {
    label: 'Delete',
    name: 'Delete'
  }
];

<ActionGroup
  items={items}>
  {(item) => (
    <Item
      key={item.name}>
      {item.label}
    </Item>
  )}
</ActionGroup>

Icons#

Icons can be added to ActionGroup items by wrapping the label in a Text element, and adding the icon as a sibling.

import {Text} from '@adobe/react-spectrum';

import Draw from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Draw';
import Copy from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Copy';
import Delete from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Delete';
<ActionGroup>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
import {Text} from '@adobe/react-spectrum';

import Draw from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Draw';
import Copy from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Copy';
import Delete from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Delete';
<ActionGroup>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
import {Text} from '@adobe/react-spectrum';

import Draw from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Draw';
import Copy from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Copy';
import Delete from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/Delete';
<ActionGroup>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

You can also hide the label text within the buttons using the buttonLabelBehavior prop. When set to "hide", the label is hidden and automatically shown in a tooltip on hover.

<ActionGroup buttonLabelBehavior="hide">
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup buttonLabelBehavior="hide">
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup buttonLabelBehavior="hide">
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Accessibility#

Icon only ActionGroups should usually include a tooltip to describe the button via the buttonLabelBehavior prop as described above. This also automatically handles labeling the button for assistive technology users.

In rare cases where no tooltip is desired, an alternative text label must be provided to identify the control for accessibility. This should be added using the aria-label prop to each Item.

<ActionGroup>
  <Item key="brush" aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item key="select" aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item key="regionSelect" aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup>
  <Item key="brush" aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item key="select" aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item key="regionSelect" aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup>
  <Item
    key="brush"
    aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item
    key="select"
    aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item
    key="regionSelect"
    aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Internationalization#

In order to internationalize an ActionGroup, the content provided to all child items should be localized.

Selection#


ActionGroup supports multiple selection modes. By default, selection is disabled, however this can be changed using the selectionMode prop. Use defaultSelectedKeys to provide a default set of selected items (uncontrolled) and selectedKeys to set the selected items (controlled). The value of the selected keys must match the key prop of the items. See the react-stately Selection docs for caveats regarding selection prop typing.

<ActionGroup selectionMode="single" defaultSelectedKeys={['list']}>
  <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
  <Item key="list">List view</Item>
  <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  selectionMode="single"
  defaultSelectedKeys={['list']}>
  <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
  <Item key="list">List view</Item>
  <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  selectionMode="single"
  defaultSelectedKeys={[
    'list'
  ]}>
  <Item key="grid">
    Grid view
  </Item>
  <Item key="list">
    List view
  </Item>
  <Item key="gallery">
    Gallery view
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

The selectedKeys prop can be used to make the selected state controlled.

function Example() {
  let [selected, setSelected] = React.useState(new Set(['list']));

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="single"
        selectedKeys={selected}
        onSelectionChange={setSelected}>
        <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
        <Item key="list">List view</Item>
        <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Current selection (controlled): {[...selected]}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [selected, setSelected] = React.useState(
    new Set(['list'])
  );

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="single"
        selectedKeys={selected}
        onSelectionChange={setSelected}>
        <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
        <Item key="list">List view</Item>
        <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Current selection (controlled): {[...selected]}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [
    selected,
    setSelected
  ] = React.useState(
    new Set(['list'])
  );

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="single"
        selectedKeys={
          selected
        }
        onSelectionChange={
          setSelected
        }>
        <Item key="grid">
          Grid view
        </Item>
        <Item key="list">
          List view
        </Item>
        <Item key="gallery">
          Gallery view
        </Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>
        Current selection
        (controlled):{' '}
        {[...selected]}
      </p>
    </>
  );
}

Set selectionMode prop to multiple to allow more than one selection.

function Example() {
  let [selected, setSelected] = React.useState(new Set(['list']));

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="multiple"
        selectedKeys={selected}
        onSelectionChange={setSelected}>
        <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
        <Item key="list">List view</Item>
        <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Current selections (controlled): {[...selected].join(', ')}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [selected, setSelected] = React.useState(
    new Set(['list'])
  );

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="multiple"
        selectedKeys={selected}
        onSelectionChange={setSelected}>
        <Item key="grid">Grid view</Item>
        <Item key="list">List view</Item>
        <Item key="gallery">Gallery view</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>
        Current selections (controlled):{' '}
        {[...selected].join(', ')}
      </p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [
    selected,
    setSelected
  ] = React.useState(
    new Set(['list'])
  );

  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        selectionMode="multiple"
        selectedKeys={
          selected
        }
        onSelectionChange={
          setSelected
        }>
        <Item key="grid">
          Grid view
        </Item>
        <Item key="list">
          List view
        </Item>
        <Item key="gallery">
          Gallery view
        </Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>
        Current
        selections
        (controlled):{' '}
        {[
          ...selected
        ].join(', ')}
      </p>
    </>
  );
}

Events#


Use the onSelectionChange prop as a callback to handle press events on items when selectionMode is either single or multiple. The key prop from the selected item will be passed into the callback.

To continue to capturing actions when selectionMode is none, utilize the onAction prop.

function Example() {
  let [actionKey, setActionKey] = React.useState('');
  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup onAction={setActionKey}>
        <Item key="add">Add</Item>
        <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
        <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Action: {actionKey}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [actionKey, setActionKey] = React.useState('');
  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup onAction={setActionKey}>
        <Item key="add">Add</Item>
        <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
        <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>Action: {actionKey}</p>
    </>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [
    actionKey,
    setActionKey
  ] = React.useState('');
  return (
    <>
      <ActionGroup
        onAction={
          setActionKey
        }>
        <Item key="add">
          Add
        </Item>
        <Item key="delete">
          Delete
        </Item>
        <Item key="edit">
          Edit
        </Item>
      </ActionGroup>
      <p>
        Action:{' '}
        {actionKey}
      </p>
    </>
  );
}

Collapsing behavior#


By default, ActionGroup items wrap to form a new line when horizontal space is limited. However, this can cause content to shift below the ActionGroup. If the ActionGroup should always appear in a single line, the overflowMode prop can be set to collapse. In this mode, when horizontal space is limited, the ActionGroup will collapse into a menu. The exact behavior depends on the selectionMode.

Non-selectable#

When selection is not enabled, ActionGroup displays as many items as possible and collapses the remaining items into a more actions menu.

<ActionGroup overflowMode="collapse" maxWidth={250}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>Duplicate</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup overflowMode="collapse" maxWidth={250}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>Duplicate</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  overflowMode="collapse"
  maxWidth={250}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>
      Duplicate
    </Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Selection#

When selection is enabled, ActionGroup collapses all items into a menu together when space is limited. The menu button indicates when one of the options within it is selected by showing a highlighted state. A summaryIcon should be specified to visually communicate the purpose of the ActionGroup when collapsed, and an aria-label should be provided to describe the ActionGroup to assistive technology.

This example shows a multi-selectable ActionGroup that can be used to select text styles. When space is limited, it collapses into a dropdown menu, and displays the TextStyle icon passed to the summaryIcon prop.

import TextStyle from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/TextStyle';

<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text style"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="multiple"
  isEmphasized
  summaryIcon={<TextStyle />}
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="bold">
    <TagBold />
    <Text>Bold</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="italic">
    <TagItalic />
    <Text>Italic</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="underline">
    <TagUnderline />
    <Text>Underline</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="strike">
    <TextStrikethrough />
    <Text>Strikethrough</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
import TextStyle from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/TextStyle';

<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text style"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="multiple"
  isEmphasized
  summaryIcon={<TextStyle />}
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="bold">
    <TagBold />
    <Text>Bold</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="italic">
    <TagItalic />
    <Text>Italic</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="underline">
    <TagUnderline />
    <Text>Underline</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="strike">
    <TextStrikethrough />
    <Text>Strikethrough</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
import TextStyle from '@spectrum-icons/workflow/TextStyle';

<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text style"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="multiple"
  isEmphasized
  summaryIcon={
    <TextStyle />
  }
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="bold">
    <TagBold />
    <Text>Bold</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="italic">
    <TagItalic />
    <Text>Italic</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="underline">
    <TagUnderline />
    <Text>
      Underline
    </Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="strike">
    <TextStrikethrough />
    <Text>
      Strikethrough
    </Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Single selection#

A special case where a summaryIcon is not needed is a single selectable ActionGroup (selectionMode="single") which enforces that an item is always selected (disallowEmptySelection). In this case, the selected item is displayed inside the menu button when collapsed.

<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text alignment"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="single"
  defaultSelectedKeys={['left']}
  disallowEmptySelection
  buttonLabelBehavior="hide"
  isEmphasized
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="left">
    <TextAlignLeft />
    <Text>Align Left</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="center">
    <TextAlignCenter />
    <Text>Align Center</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="right">
    <TextAlignRight />
    <Text>Align Right</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="justify">
    <TextAlignJustify />
    <Text>Justify</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text alignment"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="single"
  defaultSelectedKeys={['left']}
  disallowEmptySelection
  buttonLabelBehavior="hide"
  isEmphasized
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="left">
    <TextAlignLeft />
    <Text>Align Left</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="center">
    <TextAlignCenter />
    <Text>Align Center</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="right">
    <TextAlignRight />
    <Text>Align Right</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="justify">
    <TextAlignJustify />
    <Text>Justify</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  aria-label="Text alignment"
  overflowMode="collapse"
  selectionMode="single"
  defaultSelectedKeys={[
    'left'
  ]}
  disallowEmptySelection
  buttonLabelBehavior="hide"
  isEmphasized
  maxWidth={100}>
  <Item key="left">
    <TextAlignLeft />
    <Text>
      Align Left
    </Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="center">
    <TextAlignCenter />
    <Text>
      Align Center
    </Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="right">
    <TextAlignRight />
    <Text>
      Align Right
    </Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="justify">
    <TextAlignJustify />
    <Text>
      Justify
    </Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Collapsing button labels#

In addition to collapsing items that don't fit into a menu, the button labels can also be automatically hidden when space is limited. This keeps more buttons visible at a time before needing to collapse into a menu. This behavior can be enabled by setting the buttonLabelBehavior prop to "collapse". The labels will be automatically shown in tooltips when collapsed.

<ActionGroup
  overflowMode="collapse"
  buttonLabelBehavior="collapse"
  maxWidth={180}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>Duplicate</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  overflowMode="collapse"
  buttonLabelBehavior="collapse"
  maxWidth={180}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>Duplicate</Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  overflowMode="collapse"
  buttonLabelBehavior="collapse"
  maxWidth={180}>
  <Item key="edit">
    <Draw />
    <Text>Edit</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="copy">
    <Copy />
    <Text>Copy</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    <Delete />
    <Text>Delete</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="move">
    <Move />
    <Text>Move</Text>
  </Item>
  <Item key="duplicate">
    <Duplicate />
    <Text>
      Duplicate
    </Text>
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Vertical collapsing behavior#

Non-selectable vertical ActionGroups also support collapsing when the height is too small to fit all of the buttons. The behavior is the same as for horizontal ActionGroups, except for the positioning of the tooltips and menu.

Vertical ActionGroups with selection do not currently support collapsing. When selection is enabled, we recommend placing the ActionGroup in a scrollable container so that the user can access all items.

Static color#

The staticColor prop can be used when the ActionGroup is displayed over a color background. When selected, the icon and text in each button automatically take on the color of the background. You are responsible for choosing the static color variant that ensures the text meets an accessible contrast ratio with the background.

Disabled#

To disable the entire ActionGroup, use the isDisabled prop on the root.

<ActionGroup isDisabled>
  <Item key="add">Add</Item>
  <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
  <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup isDisabled>
  <Item key="add">Add</Item>
  <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
  <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  isDisabled>
  <Item key="add">
    Add
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    Delete
  </Item>
  <Item key="edit">
    Edit
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

To disable individual items, a list of disabledKeys can be provided.

<ActionGroup disabledKeys={['add', 'delete']}>
  <Item key="add">Add</Item>
  <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
  <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup disabledKeys={['add', 'delete']}>
  <Item key="add">Add</Item>
  <Item key="delete">Delete</Item>
  <Item key="edit">Edit</Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup
  disabledKeys={[
    'add',
    'delete'
  ]}>
  <Item key="add">
    Add
  </Item>
  <Item key="delete">
    Delete
  </Item>
  <Item key="edit">
    Edit
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Orientation#

Using the orientation prop with value vertical changes the alignment of the items to follow the y-axis.

<ActionGroup orientation="vertical">
  <Item key="brush" aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item key="select" aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item key="regionSelect" aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup orientation="vertical">
  <Item key="brush" aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item key="select" aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item key="regionSelect" aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>
<ActionGroup orientation="vertical">
  <Item
    key="brush"
    aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item
    key="select"
    aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
  </Item>
  <Item
    key="regionSelect"
    aria-label="Select Region">
    <RegionSelect />
  </Item>
</ActionGroup>

Density#

Using the density prop with value compact changes the margins between the buttons. In the default case, this merges the borders of neighboring ActionButtons. In the quiet case, it just reduces the margin size between the buttons.

<ActionGroup density="compact">
  <Item key="brush" aria-label="Brush">
    <Brush />
  </Item>
  <Item key="select" aria-label="Select">
    <Select />
