ConfirmPopup

ConfirmPopup is an easy to use and customizable Confirmation API using a popover.


import { ConfirmPopup } from 'primereact/confirmpopup'; // To use <ConfirmPopup> tag
import { confirmPopup } from 'primereact/confirmpopup'; // To use confirmPopup method
         

A ConfirmPopup component needs to be present on the page that is interacted with the confirmPopup function that takes a configuration object for customization. In order to align the popover, target property must be provided referring to the source element.


<Toast ref={toast} />
<ConfirmPopup />
<div className="card flex flex-wrap gap-2 justify-content-center">
    <Button onClick={confirm1} icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>
    <Button onClick={confirm2} icon="pi pi-times" label="Delete" className="p-button-danger p-button-outlined"></Button>
</div>
         

Declarative is an alternative to the programmatic approach where ConfirmDialog is controlled with a binding to visible and onHide event callback along with the target property to refer to the source element.


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

Screen Reader

ConfirmPopup component uses alertdialog role and since any attribute is passed to the root element you may define attributes like aria-label or aria-labelledby to describe the popup contents. 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. ConfirmPopup adds aria-expanded state attribute and aria-controls to the trigger so that the relation between the trigger and the popup is defined.

Overlay Keyboard Support

When the popup gets opened, the first focusable element receives the focus and this can be customized by adding autofocus to an element within the popup.
