Confirmation widget

Overview

The Magento confirmation widget implements a modal pop-up window with the cancel and confirmation button.It is an extension of the Magento modal widget.

The confirmation widget source is <Magento_Ui_module_dir>/view/base/web/js/modal/confirm.js

The widget can be used for implementing confirmation windows for both, Admin and storefront. The design patterns for the modal pop-up windows in the Admin are described in the Magento Admin Pattern Library, the Slide-out Panels, Modal Windows, and Overlays topic.

Initialize the confirmation widget

The confirmation widget can be initialized with or without binding to a certain element.

Example1: initialization on an element

$('#confirm_init').confirm({
    title: 'Confirmation title',
    actions: {
        confirm: function(){}, //callback on 'Ok' button click
        cancel: function(){}, //callback on 'Cancel' button click
        always: function(){}
    }
});

Example2: standalone initialization

require([
    'Magento_Ui/js/modal/confirm'
], function(confirmation) { // Variable that represents the `confirm` widget
  
    confirmation({
        title: 'Some title',
        content: 'Some content',
        actions: {
            confirm: function(){},
            cancel: function(){},
            always: function(){}
        }
    });
  
});
