Modal/Popup Lightning Component Salesforce

In this post, We will simply create a custom Lightning Modal/Popup Box in the salesforce lightning component.

What is Modal in Salesforce Lightning Experience ?

Modals/Popup Box are used to display content in a layer above the app. This paradigm is used in cases such as the creation or editing of a record, as well as various types of messaging and wizards.

Modal/Popup Lightning Component Salesforce looks like following image

ModalPopupExample1 Lightning  Component

In this code we are first declaring ‘isModalOpen’ attribute and setting its default value as false. Then using aura:if we are conditionally displaying modal/popup on click of button. For more details about aura:if, please refer my previous post aura:if in lightning component example

Also code has following three main part

  • section
  • header
  • footer

Details are explained in code comment.

Following is expected markup

Expected markup in in modal/popup

  • Modal has role="dialog"
  • When the modal is open, everything behind it has HTML attribute aria-hidden="true", so assistive technology won’t read out the underlying page. The best way to do this is to give the modal and the page separate wrapper elements and toggle aria-hidden="true"/aria-hidden="false" on the main page’s wrapper depending on whether or not the modal is open.
  • Modal contains an HTML heading
  • Modal has an aria-labelledby attribute whose value is the id of the modal’s heading

       default value is false as modal is closed when page is loaded

More details about lightning modal/popup

Modals always have an equal amount of space at the top and bottom to account for the height of the close button.

Modals grow according to how much content is within, but once the modal reaches full height (including the previously mentioned space on top and bottom), the content area will begin to scroll. (This scrolling is currently not available in Salesforce1 Mobile.)

For more details about modal in lightning, please refer to modal lightning
