Prompt widget

Overview

The Magento prompt widget implements a modal pop-up window with an input field, and a cancel and a confirmation button.

It extends the Magento modal widget.

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

The widget can be used for implementing prompt 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 prompt widget

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

Example1: initialization on an element

$('#prompt_init').prompt({
    title: 'Prompt 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/prompt'
], function(prompt) { // Variable that represents the `prompt` function
 
    prompt({
        title: 'Some title',
        content: 'Some content',
        actions: {
            confirm: function(){},
            cancel: function(){},
            always: function(){}
        }
    });
 
});
