ion-action-sheet

An Action Sheet is a dialog that displays a set of options. It appears on top of the app's content, and must be manually dismissed by the user before they can resume interaction with the app. Destructive options are made obvious in ios mode. There are multiple ways to dismiss the action sheet, including tapping the backdrop or hitting the escape key on desktop.

Buttons

A button's role property can either be destructive or cancel. Buttons without a role property will have the default look for the platform. Buttons with the cancel role will always load as the bottom button, no matter where they are in the array. All other buttons will be displayed in the order they have been added to the buttons array. Note: We recommend that destructive buttons are always the first button in the array, making them the top button. Additionally, if the action sheet is dismissed by tapping the backdrop, then it will fire the handler from the button with the cancel role.

Customization

Action Sheet uses scoped encapsulation, which means it will automatically scope its CSS by appending each of the styles with an additional class at runtime. Overriding scoped selectors in CSS requires a higher specificity selector.

We recommend passing a custom class to cssClass in the create method and using that to add custom styles to the host and inner elements. This property can also accept multiple classes separated by spaces. View the Usage section for an example of how to pass a class using cssClass.

/* DOES NOT WORK - not specific enough */
.action-sheet-group {
  background: #e5e5e5;
}

/* Works - pass "my-custom-class" in cssClass to increase specificity */
.my-custom-class .action-sheet-group {
  background: #e5e5e5;
}

Any of the defined CSS Custom Properties can be used to style the Action Sheet without needing to target individual elements:

.my-custom-class {
  --background: #e5e5e5;
}

If you are building an Ionic Angular app, the styles need to be added to a global stylesheet file. Read Style Placement in the Angular section below for more information.

Usage

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { ActionSheetController } from '@ionic/angular';

@Component({
  selector: 'action-sheet-example',
  templateUrl: 'action-sheet-example.html',
  styleUrls: ['./action-sheet-example.css'],
})
export class ActionSheetExample {

  constructor(public actionSheetController: ActionSheetController) {}

  async presentActionSheet() {
    const actionSheet = await this.actionSheetController.create({
      header: 'Albums',
      cssClass: 'my-custom-class',
      buttons: [{
        text: 'Delete',
        role: 'destructive',
        icon: 'trash',
        handler: () => {
          console.log('Delete clicked');
        }
      }, {
        text: 'Share',
        icon: 'share',
        handler: () => {
          console.log('Share clicked');
        }
      }, {
        text: 'Play (open modal)',
        icon: 'caret-forward-circle',
        handler: () => {
          console.log('Play clicked');
        }
      }, {
        text: 'Favorite',
        icon: 'heart',
        handler: () => {
          console.log('Favorite clicked');
        }
      }, {
        text: 'Cancel',
        icon: 'close',
        role: 'cancel',
        handler: () => {
          console.log('Cancel clicked');
        }
      }]
    });
    await actionSheet.present();
  }

Style Placement

In Angular, the CSS of a specific page is scoped only to elements of that page. Even though the Action Sheet can be presented from within a page, the ion-action-sheet element is appended outside of the current page. This means that any custom styles need to go in a global stylesheet file. In an Ionic Angular starter this can be the src/global.scss file or you can register a new global style file by adding to the styles build option in angular.json.

async function presentActionSheet() {
  const actionSheet = document.createElement('ion-action-sheet');

  actionSheet.header = 'Albums';
  actionSheet.cssClass = 'my-custom-class';
  actionSheet.buttons = [{
    text: 'Delete',
    role: 'destructive',
    icon: 'trash',
    handler: () => {
      console.log('Delete clicked');
    }
  }, {
    text: 'Share',
    icon: 'share',
    handler: () => {
      console.log('Share clicked');
    }
  }, {
    text: 'Play (open modal)',
    icon: 'caret-forward-circle',
    handler: () => {
      console.log('Play clicked');
    }
  }, {
    text: 'Favorite',
    icon: 'heart',
    handler: () => {
      console.log('Favorite clicked');
    }
  }, {
    text: 'Cancel',
    icon: 'close',
    role: 'cancel',
    handler: () => {
      console.log('Cancel clicked');
    }
  }];
  document.body.appendChild(actionSheet);
  return actionSheet.present();
