    Description

    focus-svelte works a bit differently than other focus locks I've encounted. Rather than using an event listener to track user activity and overriding the default behavior of the browser, the DOM is manipulated instead. All elements outside of an active focus lock's descendants or ancestory have their tabindex set to -1 if it was 0 or greater previously.

    To keep track of changes after the lock is enabled, a MutationObserver monitors the DOM for updates. Once all focus locks are disabled or removed, the observer is stopped and the elements' properties are reset. If a focus lock later becomes active, the observer is restarted and nodes are decorated accordingly.

    When a lock becomes active for the first time, the HTMLElement that is assigned focus is dependent upon the options passed to the action / component.

    If element is assigned and is tabbable, it will be focused upon. If element is undefined or not tabbable and focusable is true, the HTMLElement with use:focus is granted focus. Finally, if neither of those conditions are met, focus will be set on the first tabbable element.

    Usage

    There is both an action and a component that can be utilized.

    Options

    option description type default
    element If element is assigned and is tabbable, it will be focused upon when the trap is enabled. string values will be considered a query selector. Element | string undefined
    focusable The HTMLElement the action is assigned to gets a tabindex of 0 when the trap becomes active boolean false
    focusDelay can either be a number of ms to wait or an async function that resolves (void) when the focus of an element should be set. number | () => Promise<void> tick
    delay Determines how long to wait before batching updates to tabIndex and ariaHidden. number | () => Promise<void> tick
    assignAriaHidden When a focus trap becomes enabled and is true, all elements outside of an active trap or their ancestory have their aria-hidden attribute set to "true". boolean false
    preventScroll sets preventScroll when focusing. boolean false
    enabled If true, the focus trap becomes active. boolean false

    action

    <script>
    	import { focus } from "focus-svelte";
    	let enabled = true;
    	function toggleFocus() {
    		enabled = !enabled;
    	}
    </script>
    
    <button on:click="{toggleFocus}">{enabled ? "disable" : "enable"} focus</button>
    
    <div use:focus="{enabled}">
    	<input value={enabled ? "focus is traped here" : "regular tabbable input"} />
    </div>
    
    <input value={enabled ? "can't tab here" : "can be tabbed into!"} />

    With assignAriaHidden

    <script>
    	import { focus } from "focus-svelte";
    	let enabled = true;
    	function toggleFocus() {
    		enabled = !enabled;
    	}
    </script>
    
    <button on:click="{toggleFocus}">{enabled ? "disable" : "enable"} focus</button>
    
    <div use:focus="{{enabled, assignAriaHidden: true}}">
    	<input value={enabled ? "focus is traped here" : "regular tabbable input"} />
    </div>
    
    <input value={enabled ? "can't tab here" : "can be tabbed into!"} />

    component

    <script>
    	import { Focus } from "focus-svelte";
    	let enabled = true;
    	function toggleFocus() {
    		enabled = !enabled;
    	}
    </script>
    
    <button on:click="{toggleFocus}">{enabled ? "disable" : "enable"} focus</button>
    
    <Focus {enabled} assignAriaHidden="{true}">
    	<input value={enabled ? "focus is traped here" : "regular tabbable input"} />
    </Focus>
    
    <input value={enabled ? "can't tab here" : "can be tabbed into!"} />

    Note: As the action needs an HTMLElement, the component version wraps your content with a div.

    override

    If you wish to override the behavior of an element, you can set data-focus-override="true" and it will retain its original tabindex.
