ConfirmDialog

ConfirmDialog is an easy to use and customizable Confirmation API using a dialog.


import { ConfirmDialog } from 'primereact/confirmdialog'; // For <ConfirmDialog /> component
import { confirmDialog } from 'primereact/confirmdialog'; // For confirmDialog method
         

A ConfirmDialog component needs to be present on the page that is interacted with the confirmDialog function that takes a configuration object for customization.


<Toast ref={toast} />
<ConfirmDialog />
<Button onClick={confirm1} icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>
<Button onClick={confirm2} icon="pi pi-times" label="Delete"></Button>
         

The position property of the confirm options is used to display a Dialog at all edges and corners of the screen.


<Toast ref={toast} />
<ConfirmDialog />
<div className="flex flex-wrap justify-content-center gap-2 mb-2">
    <Button label="Left" icon="pi pi-arrow-right" onClick={() => confirm('left')} className="p-button-help" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
    <Button label="Right" icon="pi pi-arrow-left" onClick={() => confirm('right')} className="p-button-help" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
</div>
<div className="flex flex-wrap justify-content-center gap-2 mb-2">
    <Button label="TopLeft" icon="pi pi-arrow-down-right" onClick={() => confirm('top-left')} className="p-button-warning" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
    <Button label="Top" icon="pi pi-arrow-down" onClick={() => confirm('top')} className="p-button-warning" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
    <Button label="TopRight" icon="pi pi-arrow-down-left" onClick={() => confirm('top-right')} className="p-button-warning" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
</div>
<div className="flex flex-wrap justify-content-center gap-2">
    <Button label="BottomLeft" icon="pi pi-arrow-up-right" onClick={() => confirm('bottom-left')} className="p-button-success" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
    <Button label="Bottom" icon="pi pi-arrow-up" onClick={() => confirm('bottom')} className="p-button-success" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
    <Button label="BottomRight" icon="pi pi-arrow-up-left" onClick={() => confirm('bottom-right')} className="p-button-success" style={{ minWidth: '10rem' }} />
</div>
         

Declarative is an alternative to the programmatic approach where ConfirmDialog is controlled with a binding to visible and onHide event callback.


<Toast ref={toast} />
<ConfirmDialog visible={visible} onHide={() => setVisible(false)} message="Are you sure you want to proceed?" 
    header="Confirmation" icon="pi pi-exclamation-triangle" accept={accept} reject={reject} />
<Button onClick={() => setVisible(true)} icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm" />
         

Following is the list of structural style classes, for theming classes visit theming page.

NameElement
p-confirm-dialogContainer element.
Accessibility guide documents the specification of this component based on WCAG guidelines, the implementation is in progress.

Screen Reader

ConfirmDialog component uses alertdialog role along with aria-labelledby referring to the header element however any attribute is passed to the root element so you may use aria-labelledby to override this default behavior. In addition aria-modal is added since focus is kept within the popup.

It is recommended to use a trigger component that can be accessed with keyboard such as a button, if not adding tabIndex would be necessary.

When confirm function is used and a trigger is passed as a parameter, ConfirmDialog adds aria-expanded state attribute and aria-controls to the trigger so that the relation between the trigger and the popup is defined.


const confirm = (event) => {
    confirmDialog({
        trigger: event.currentTarget,
        message: 'Are you sure you want to proceed?',
        header: 'Confirmation',
        icon: 'pi pi-exclamation-triangle',
        accept: () => acceptFunc(),
        reject: () => rejectFunc()
    });
}

<Button onClick={confirm} icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>

<ConfirmDialog />
 

If the dialog is controlled with the visible property aria-expanded and aria-controls need to be handled explicitly.


<ConfirmDialog id="dlg_confirmation" visible={visible} onHide={() => setVisible(false)} message="Are you sure you want to proceed?"
header="Confirmation" icon="pi pi-exclamation-triangle" accept={accept} reject={reject} />

<Button onClick={() => setVisible(true)} icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm" aria-controls={visible ? 'dlg_confirmation' : null} aria-expanded={visible ? true : false} />
