ngx-simple-modal v1.3.13

A simple unopinionated framework to implement simple modal based behaviour in angular (v2+) projects.

NGX Simple Modal Build Status

It is a library to makes modals easier in Angular (2+), has no dependencies, but plays well with bootstrap or other frameworks.

  • Create clear and reusable modal components.
  • It makes managing modals painless and clearer.
  • Extend the ModalComponent class and implement any content you want.

Credits

This project was seeded by https://github.com/ankosoftware/ng2-bootstrap-modal because the author was not responding to pull requests so decided to take what they had started and update and run with it. Along the way we put some of our own opinions on it and added some tests, enough changes that it stopped being a viable PR for the original without serious breaking changes.

Migrating from ng2-bootstrap-modal or angularx-bootstrap-modal

  • The SimpleModal* naming convention replaces the older BootstrapModule + Dialogue* naming mixed convention
  • There is no strict dependency on Bootstrap now, you can use our CSS or use any framework you want
  • SimpleModalOptions changed a couple options, please see below for details.

Demo

You can see the demo in action here - https://ngx-simple-modal-demo.stackblitz.io You can have a play with this demo code here - https://stackblitz.com/edit/ngx-simple-modal-demo?embed=1&file=styles.css

Installation

npm install ngx-simple-modal

Quickstart

Step 0. assuming you want to use our built in styles

To create a custom modal box, you can start with the following example, wich is going to create a modal with a header, body and footer. The css already provide a transparency overlay, opacity and slide animation.

Inside your angular-cli.json update your styles sections to include our CSS

"styles": [
  "styles.css",
  "../node_modules/ngx-simple-modal/styles/simple-modal.css"
],

But i use SASS/SCSS?

We got you covered, you can @import '../node_modules/ngx-simple-modal/styles/simple-modal.scss' into what ever root based scss global style you want. Update the relative path depending on where you want to pull it in.

Assumed HTML template if you want our base styles

<div class="modal-content">
    <div class="modal-header">
      <!-- Your Title -->
    </div>
    <div class="modal-body">
      <!-- Modal custom content -->
    </div>
    <div class="modal-footer">
      <!--
        Footer to add button control
        ex.: <button (click)="close()">Cancel</button>
      -->
    </div>
</div>

Step 1. Import the 'SimpleModalModule' module

app.module.ts:

import { NgModule} from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule } from "@angular/common";
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { SimpleModalModule } from 'ngx-simple-modal';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
    BrowserModule,
    SimpleModalModule
  ],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

By default, modal placeholder will be added to AppComponent. But you can select custom placeholder (i.e. document body):

imports: [
    ...
    SimpleModalModule.forRoot({container:document.body})
  ]

If you want a container that is not yet in the DOM during the intial load you can pass a promiseLike function instead to container e.g.

imports: [
    ...
    SimpleModalModule.forRoot({container: elementPromisingFn()})
  ]

where elementPromisingFn is anything you want as long as its resolvement returns a nativeElement node from the DOM.

Setting up modal defaults globally

An optional second parameter takes a global object of type SimpleModalOptions (all fields required).. you can spread these with the defaultSimpleModalOptions if you like.

imports: [
    ...
    SimpleModalModule.forRoot({container: 'modal-container'}, {...defaultSimpleModalOptions, ...{
      closeOnEscape: true,
      closeOnClickOutside: true,
      wrapperDefaultClasses: 'o-modal o-modal--fade',
      wrapperClass: 'o-modal--fade-in'
    }})

  ]

OR, if you need to control behaviour more granularly, you can provide the configuration in modules or locally like so

provide:[
  {
    provide: DefaultSimpleModalOptionConfig,
    useValue: {...defaultSimpleModalOptions, ...{ closeOnEscape: true, closeOnClickOutside: true }}
  }
]

Step 2. Create your modal component

Your modal is expected to be extended from SimpleModalComponent. SimpleModalService is generic class with two arguments:

  1. input modal data type (data to initialize component);
  2. modal result type;

Therefore SimpleModalService is supposed to be a constructor argument of SimpleModalComponent.

confirm.component.ts:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { SimpleModalComponent } from "ngx-simple-modal";
export interface ConfirmModel {
  title:string;
  message:string;
}
@Component({
    selector: 'confirm',
    template: `
      <div class="modal-content">
        <div class="modal-header">
          <h4>{{title || 'Confirm'}}</h4>
        </div>
        <div class="modal-body">
          <p>{{message || 'Are you sure?'}}</p>
        </div>
        <div class="modal-footer">
          <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-danger" (click)="close()" >Cancel</button>
          <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" (click)="confirm()">OK</button>
        </div>
      </div>
    `
})
export class ConfirmComponent extends SimpleModalComponent<ConfirmModel, boolean> implements ConfirmModel {
  title: string;
  message: string;
  constructor() {
    super();
  }
  confirm() {
    // we set modal result as true on click on confirm button,
    // then we can get modal result from caller code
    this.result = true;
    this.close();
  }
}

Step 3. Register created component to module

Add component to declarations and entryComponents section, because the component will be created dynamically.

app.module.ts:

    import { NgModule} from '@angular/core';
    import { CommonModule } from "@angular/common";
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { SimpleModalModule } from 'ngx-simple-modal';
    import { ConfirmComponent } from './confirm.component';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    @NgModule({
      declarations: [
        AppComponent,
        ConfirmComponent
      ],
      imports: [
        CommonModule,
        BrowserModule,
        SimpleModalModule
      ],
      //Don't forget to add the component to entryComponents section
      entryComponents: [
        ConfirmComponent
      ],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    })
    export class AppModule {}

Step 4. Usage

app.component.ts

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { ConfirmComponent } from './confirm.component';
    import { SimpleModalService } from "ngx-simple-modal";

    @Component({
      selector: 'app',
      template: `
        <div class="modal-content">
          <div class="modal-header">
            <h4>Confirm</h4>
          </div>
          <div class="modal-body">
            <p>Are you sure?</p>
          </div>
          <div class="modal-footer">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" (click)="showConfirm()">Show confirm</button>
          </div>
        </div>
      `
    })
    export class AppComponent {
        constructor(private simpleModalService:SimpleModalService) {}
        showConfirm() {
            let disposable = this.simpleModalService.addModal(ConfirmComponent, {
                  title: 'Confirm title',
                  message: 'Confirm message'
                })
                .subscribe((isConfirmed)=>{
                    //We get modal result
                    if(isConfirmed) {
                        alert('accepted');
                    }
                    else {
                        alert('declined');
                    }
                });
            //We can close modal calling disposable.unsubscribe();
            //If modal was not closed manually close it by timeout
            setTimeout(()=>{
                disposable.unsubscribe();
            },10000);
        }
    }

What if i want to use Bootstrap 3 or 4?

We got you! An example boostrap alert modal component.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { SimpleModalComponent } from 'ngx-simple-modal';

export interface AlertModel {
  title: string;
  message: string;
}

@Component({
  selector: 'alert',
  template: `<div class="modal-dialog">
                <div class="modal-content">
                   <div class="modal-header">
                     <button type="button" class="close" (click)="close()" >&times;</button>
                     <h4 class="modal-title">{{title || 'Alert!'}}</h4>
                   </div>
                   <div class="modal-body">
                     <p>{{message || 'TADAA-AM!'}}</p>
                   </div>
                   <div class="modal-footer">
                     <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" (click)="close()">OK</button>
                   </div>
                </div>
             </div>`
})
export class AlertComponent extends SimpleModalComponent<AlertModel, null> implements AlertModel {
  title: string;
  message: string;
  constructor() {
    super();
  }
}

As you can see, the implementation is completely in your control. We're just here to help you create, configure, add, track inputs, and remove.
