DialogTrigger

DialogTrigger serves as a wrapper around a Dialog and its associated trigger, linking the Dialog's open state with the trigger's press state. Additionally, it allows you to customize the type and positioning of the Dialog.

  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Content#


The DialogTrigger accepts exactly two children: the element which triggers opening of the Dialog and the Dialog itself. The trigger must be the first child passed into the DialogTrigger and should be an element that supports press events.

If your Dialog has buttons within it that should close the Dialog when pressed, you must wrap the Dialog in a function in order to propagate the DialogTrigger's close function to the Dialog's children. Dialogs that do not contain such interactive elements can simply provide the Dialog component as is to the DialogTrigger as its second child.

The example below demonstrates how to pass the DialogTrigger's close function to the Dialog's buttons.

<DialogTrigger>
  <ActionButton>Checkout</ActionButton>
  {(close) => (
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>Confirm checkout?</Heading>
      <Divider />
      <Content>
        <Text>You have 5 items in your cart. Proceed to checkout?</Text>
      </Content>
      <ButtonGroup>
        <Button variant="secondary" onPress={close}>
          Cancel
        </Button>
        <Button variant="cta" onPress={close} autoFocus>
          Confirm
        </Button>
      </ButtonGroup>
    </Dialog>
  )}
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger>
  <ActionButton>Checkout</ActionButton>
  {(close) => (
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>Confirm checkout?</Heading>
      <Divider />
      <Content>
        <Text>
          You have 5 items in your cart. Proceed to
          checkout?

          items in your

          }
          autoFocus>
          Confirm
        </Button>
      </ButtonGroup>
    </Dialog>
  )}
</DialogTrigger>

Dialog types#


By providing a type prop, you can specify the type of Dialog that is rendered by your DialogTrigger. Note that pressing the Esc key will close the Dialog regardless of its type.

Modal Dialogs create an underlay that blocks access to the underlying user interface until the Dialog is closed. Sizing options can be found on the Dialog page. Focus is trapped inside the Modal as per the accessibility guidelines laid out by W3C.

<DialogTrigger type="modal">
  <ActionButton>Unlink</ActionButton>
  {(close) => (
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>Unlinking email</Heading>
      <Divider />
      <Content>
        <Text>
          This will unlink your email from your profile "TestUser". Are you
          sure?

        <Button

          Confirm
        </Button>
      </ButtonGroup>
    </Dialog>
  )}
</DialogTrigger>

Popover#

If a Dialog without an underlay is needed, consider using a Popover Dialog. See Dialog placement for how you can customize the positioning. Note that popovers are automatically rendered as modals on mobile by default. See the mobile type option for more information.

<DialogTrigger type="popover">
  <ActionButton>Info</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Version Info</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Version 1.0.0, Copyright 2020</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="popover">

  <Dialog>

      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Tray#

Tray Dialogs are typically used to portray information on mobile devices or smaller screens.

<DialogTrigger type="tray">
  <ActionButton>Check Messages</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>New Messages</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>You have 5 new messages.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="tray">
  <ActionButton>Check Messages</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>New Messages</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>You have 5 new messages.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="tray">
  <ActionButton>
    Check Messages
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      New Messages
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        You have 5 new
        messages.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Fullscreen#

Fullscreen Dialogs are a fullscreen variant of the Modal Dialog, only revealing a small portion of the page behind the underlay. Use this variant for more complex workflows that do not fit in the available Modal Dialog sizes. This variant does not support isDismissible.

<DialogTrigger type="fullscreen">
  <ActionButton>See Details</ActionButton>
  {(close) => (
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>Package details</Heading>
      <Divider />
      <Content>

Fullscreen takeover#

Fullscreen takeover Dialogs are similar to the fullscreen variant except that the Dialog covers the entire screen.

<DialogTrigger type="fullscreenTakeover">

      <Heading>Register a new account</Heading>
      <Divider />

      <ButtonGroup>
        <Button variant="secondary" onPress={close}>

<DialogTrigger type="fullscreenTakeover">

        <Button

          Confirm
        </Button>
      </ButtonGroup>
    </Dialog>
  )}
</DialogTrigger>

Dismissable#

If your Modal Dialog doesn't require the user to make a confirmation, you can set isDismissable on the DialogTrigger. This adds a close button that the user can press to dismiss the Dialog.

<DialogTrigger isDismissable type="modal">
  <ActionButton>User Status</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Status: Bob</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Last Login: December 12, 1989</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger isDismissable type="modal">
  <ActionButton>User Status</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Status: Bob</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Last Login: December 12, 1989</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  isDismissable
  type="modal">
  <ActionButton>
    User Status
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      Status: Bob
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        Last Login:
        December 12,
        1989
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Mobile type#

The mobileType prop allows you to specify what kind of Dialog should be displayed when viewed on mobile devices or smaller viewports. Note that on mobile, Popovers are not supported and will display as modals by default.

The example below renders as a Popover on desktop but switches to a Tray on mobile.

<DialogTrigger type="popover" mobileType="tray">
  <ActionButton>Info</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Version Info</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Version 1.0.0, Copyright 2020</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="popover" mobileType="tray">
  <ActionButton>Info</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Version Info</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Version 1.0.0, Copyright 2020</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  mobileType="tray">
  <ActionButton>
    Info
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      Version Info
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        Version 1.0.0,
        Copyright 2020
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Dialog placement#


Popover Dialogs support a variety of placement options since they do not take over the user interface like Modal or Tray Dialogs.

Dialog anchor#

By default, popovers anchor themselves to their associated trigger. This can be overridden by providing a separate ref to the targetRef prop.

function Example() {
  let ref = React.useRef();

  return (
    <Flex gap="size-1000">
      <DialogTrigger type="popover" targetRef={ref}>
        <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
        <Dialog>
          <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
          <Divider />
          <Content>
            <Text>This is a popover anchored to the span.</Text>
          </Content>
        </Dialog>
      </DialogTrigger>
      <span ref={ref} style={{width: '100px'}}>
        Popover appears over here
      </span>
    </Flex>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let ref = React.useRef();

  return (
    <Flex gap="size-1000">
      <DialogTrigger type="popover" targetRef={ref}>
        <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
        <Dialog>
          <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
          <Divider />
          <Content>
            <Text>
              This is a popover anchored to the span.
            </Text>
          </Content>
        </Dialog>
      </DialogTrigger>
      <span ref={ref} style={{width: '100px'}}>
        Popover appears over here
      </span>
    </Flex>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let ref = React.useRef();

  return (
    <Flex gap="size-1000">
      <DialogTrigger
        type="popover"
        targetRef={ref}>

            <Text>
              This is a
              popover
              anchored to
              the span.
            </Text>
          </Content>
        </Dialog>
      </DialogTrigger>
      <span
        ref={ref}
        style={{
          width: '100px'
        }}>
        Popover appears

Placement#

The popover's placement with respect to its anchor element can be adjusted using the placement prop. See the props table below for a full list of available placement combinations.

<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="right top">
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        This is a popover placed to the right of its trigger and offset so the
        arrow is at the top of the dialog.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="right top">
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        This is a popover placed to the right of its
        trigger and offset so the arrow is at the top of
        the dialog.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="right top">
  <ActionButton>
    Trigger
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      The Heading
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        This is a
        popover placed
        to the right of
        its trigger and
        offset so the
        arrow is at the
        top of the
        dialog.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Offset and cross offset#

The Popover Dialog's offset with respect to its anchor element can be adjusted using the offset and crossOffset props. The offset prop controls the spacing applied along the main axis between the element and its anchor element whereas the crossOffset prop handles the spacing applied along the cross axis.

Below is a popover offset by an additional 50px above the trigger.

<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="top" offset={50}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Offset</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Offset by an additional 50px.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="top" offset={50}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Offset</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Offset by an additional 50px.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="top"
  offset={50}>
  <ActionButton>
    Trigger
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      Offset
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        Offset by an
        additional
        50px.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Below is a popover cross offset by an additional 100px to the right of the trigger.

<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="top" crossOffset={100}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Cross offset</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Offset by an additional 100px.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="top"
  crossOffset={100}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>Cross offset</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>Offset by an additional 100px.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="top"
  crossOffset={100}>
  <ActionButton>
    Trigger
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      Cross offset
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        Offset by an
        additional
        100px.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Flipping#

By default, DialogTrigger attempts to flip popovers on the main axis in situations where the original placement would cause it to render out of view. This can be overridden by setting shouldFlip={false}. To see the difference between the two options, scroll this page so that the example below is near the bottom of the window.

<Flex gap="size-100" wrap>
  <DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="bottom">
    <ActionButton>Default DialogTrigger</ActionButton>
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
      <Divider />
      <Content>
        <Text>
          This is a popover that will flip if it can't fully render below the
          button.
        </Text>
      </Content>
    </Dialog>
  </DialogTrigger>
   <DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="bottom" shouldFlip={false}>
    <ActionButton>DialogTrigger with shouldFlip=false</ActionButton>
    <Dialog>
      <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
      <Divider />

          button.
        </Text>
      </Content>
    </Dialog>
  </DialogTrigger>
</Flex>

Container padding#

You can control the minimum padding required between the Popover Dialog and the surrounding container via the containerPadding prop. This affects the positioning breakpoints that determine when the Dialog will attempt to flip.

The example below will flip the Dialog from above the trigger button to below the trigger button if the Dialog cannot render fully while maintaining 50px of padding between itself and the top of the browser.

<DialogTrigger type="popover" placement="top" containerPadding={50}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>This is a popover.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="top"
  containerPadding={50}>
  <ActionButton>Trigger</ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>The Heading</Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>This is a popover.</Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>
<DialogTrigger
  type="popover"
  placement="top"
  containerPadding={
    50
  }>
  <ActionButton>
    Trigger
  </ActionButton>
  <Dialog>
    <Heading>
      The Heading
    </Heading>
    <Divider />
    <Content>
      <Text>
        This is a
        popover.
      </Text>
    </Content>
  </Dialog>
</DialogTrigger>

Events#


DialogTrigger accepts an onOpenChange handler which is triggered whenever the Dialog is opened or closed.

The example below uses onOpenChange to update a separate element with the current open state of the Dialog.

function Example() {
  let [state, setState] = React.useState(false);

  return (
    <Flex alignItems="center" gap="size-100">
      <DialogTrigger
        type="popover"
        placement="top"
        onOpenChange={(isOpen) => setState(isOpen)}>
        <ActionButton>Whispers</ActionButton>
        <Dialog>
          <Heading>Whispers and DMs</Heading>
          <Divider />
          <Content>
            <Text>You have 0 new messages.</Text>
          </Content>
        </Dialog>
      </DialogTrigger>
      <Text>Current open state: {state.toString()}</Text>
    </Flex>
  );
}
function Example() {
  let [state, setState] = React.useState(false);

  return (

  );
}
function Example() {

    setState
  ] = React.useState(
    false
  );

  return (

      <DialogTrigger
        type="popover"
        placement="top"
        onOpenChange={(
          isOpen
        ) =>
          setState(
            isOpen
          )
        }>

            DMs
          </Heading>
          <Divider />
          <Content>
            <Text>
              You have 0
              new
              messages.
            </Text>
