Alert Dialog

The action allows you to alert the user of important situations that require acknowledgment in the form of a pop-up or custom-designed dialog. With this feature, you can choose to display a pre-built pop-up or create a custom design that suits your specific requirements.

Types of Alert Dialog

We allow you to define two types of Alert Dialog Actions:
  • Informational Dialog: To show some information the user should be aware of before interacting with the app. Contains only a single action button.
  • Confirm Dialog: This dialog can contain two action buttons. It can trigger the subsequent action based on whether a user confirms the action. It can also be used before performing any non-revertable user action, for example, before deleting a user account.
  • Custom Dialog: This is a fully customizable dialog that you can create using components.

Adding Custom Dialog action

Before you add this action, ensure you create a component that you want to display as a custom dialog. Now follow the steps below to add this type of action to any widget:
  1. 1.
    Select the Widget (e.g., Button) on which you want to add the action.
  2. 2.

  7. 7.
    By default, this type of action blocks the following action (if any) from triggering while this action is in progress, meaning the dialog is present on the screen. However, in some cases, you might want to allow the next action (after this) to execute, for example, making an API call immediately after showing the custom loading dialog. To do so, enable Non Blocking option.
  8. 8.
    By default, Non Dismissble option closes the dialog when you click outside of it. To disable this behavior, enable this option.
