Ionic - JavaScript Popup


Advertisements


This service is used for creating a popup window on top of the regular view, which will be used for interaction with the users. There are four types of popups namely − show, confirm, alert and prompt.

Using Show Popup

This popup is the most complex of all. To trigger popups, we need to inject the $ionicPopup service to our controller and then just add a method that will trigger the popup we want to use, in this case $ionicPopup.show(). The onTap(e) function can be used for adding e.preventDefault() method, which will keep the popup open, if there is no change applied to the input. When the popup is closed, the promised object will be resolved.

Controller Code

.controller('MyCtrl', function($scope, $ionicPopup) {

   // When button is clicked, the popup will be shown...
   $scope.showPopup = function() {
      $scope.data = {}
    
      // Custom popup
      var myPopup = $ionicPopup.show({
         template: '<input type = "text" ng-model = "data.model">',
         title: 'Title',
         subTitle: 'Subtitle',
         scope: $scope,
			
         buttons: [
            { text: 'Cancel' }, {
               text: '<b>Save</b>',
               type: 'button-positive',
               onTap: function(e) {
						
                  if (!$scope.data.model) {
                     //don't allow the user to close unless he enters model...
                     e.preventDefault();
                  } else {
                     return $scope.data.model;
                  }
               }
            }
         ]
      });

      myPopup.then(function(res) {
         console.log('Tapped!', res);
      });    
   };

})

         title: 'Title',
         template: 'Are you sure?'
      });

         if(res) {
            console.log('Sure!');
