React Dialog Manager

Manage dialogs throughout the react application. React Dialog Manager gives you a clear declarative API to easily handle the dialog's behaviour.

Installation

using npm:

npm install --save react-dialog-manager

Getting Started

React Dialog Manager gives you great functionalities and flexibility to handle the dialogs of your react projects. Let's start with the following implementaiton.

import React from 'react';
import {createDialogManager, DialogManagerComponent} from 'react-dialog-manager';
 
const dialogManager = createDialogManager();
const dialog = dialogManager.createDialog({
    title: 'The Dialog Title',
    body: <TestForm  />
});
 
class App extends React.Component{
 
    constructor(props){
        super(props);
    }
 
    onOpenBtnClicked(){
        dialog.open();
    }
 
    onCloseBtnClicked(){
        dialog.close();
    }
 
    render(){
        return (
            <div className="App">
                <div>
                    <button onClick={this.onOpenBtnClicked.bind(this)}>Open Dialog</button>
                    <button onClick={this.onCloseBtnClicked.bind(this)}>Close Dialog</button>
                </div>
                <DialogManagerComponent manager={dialogManager} />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
function TestForm(props){
    /* dialog is passed within props */
    let {dialog} = props;
    return (
        <form>
            <input type="text" />
        </form>
    );
}
 
export default App;

From the previous implementation we can get some points;

  • <DialogManagerComponent /> this ReactComponent is imported from react-dialog-manager and it's recommended to be at higher level in the application as shown in previous snippet. This component takes only one prop which is manager.
// dialogManager comes from createDialogManager or getLastDMInstance
<DialogManagerComponent manager={dialogManager} />
  • createDialogManager this function is also imported from react-dialog-manager to create a DialogManager instace with two main params.
let setting = {}; // setting for manager
let instanceName = 'base_dialogs_manager'; // acts as id or key. just used for identification.
const dialogManager = createDialogManager(setting, instanceName);

Note, Sometimes, we use dialogManager in different places through our app to create dialogs so instead of making a seperate singleton object to handle this process, we can use getLastDMInstance function which also is exported from react-dialog-manager.

  • createDialog once you have already created a dialogManager, you can create as much as you need of dialogs. You can, easily, interact with dialog throuth API.
const dialogManager = createDialogManager();
let definition = {}; // definition of the dialog like its title, its header, its body ... etc.
const dialog = dialogManager.createDialog(definition);
 // open the dialog
dialog.open();
 // close the dialog
dialog.close();

Expamples

Let's go throght some examples.

  • Basic Example
import React from 'react';
import {
    createDialogManager,
    DialogManagerComponent
 } from 'react-dialog-manager';
 
 
const dialogManager = createDialogManager({}, 'BASE_DM');
const dialogA = dialogManager.createDialog({
    title: 'The Dialog Title',
    body: (
        <div>
            <p>Hello World</p>
        </div>
        )
});
 
class App extends React.Component{
 
    constructor(props){
        super(props);
    }
 
    onBtnAClicked(){
        dialogA.open();
    }
 
    onBtnBClicked(){
        let definition = {
            title: 'Dialog B',
            body: 'the body content'
        };
        let dialogInstanceName = 'DIALOG_B';
        /* will get dialogInstance of 'DIALOG_B'. In case of not existing -> create new one */
        dialogManager.getLastDialogInstance(definition, dialogInstanceName).open();
    }
 
    render(){
        return (
            <div className="App">
                <div>
                    <button onClick={this.onBtnAClicked.bind(this)}>Open Dialog A</button>
                    <button onClick={this.onBtnBClicked.bind(this)}>Open Dialog B</button>
                </div>
                <DialogManagerComponent manager={dialogManager} />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
export default App;
  • Nested Dialogs Example
const dialogManager = createDialogManager({}, 'BASE_DM');
const dialogA = dialogManager.createDialog({
    title: 'The Dialog Title',
    body: <DialogBody />,
    close_by_overlay: false /* will not close when clicking on overlay layer */
});
 
class App extends React.Component{
 
    onBtnAClicked(){
        dialogA.open();
    }
 
    render(){
        return (
            <div className="App">
                <div>
                    <button onClick={this.onBtnAClicked.bind(this)}>Open Dialog</button>
                </div>
                <DialogManagerComponent manager={dialogManager} />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
function DialogBody(props){
    return (
        <div>
            <button 
                onClick={() => {
                    dialogManager.getLastDialogInstance({
                        title: 'I am nested dialog',
                        body: <div>Awesome!</div>
                    }, 'NESTED_DAILOG').open();
                }}
            >
                Open Nested Dialog
            </button>
        </div>
    );
}
 
export default App;
  • Open - Close Handlers Examples
const dialogManager = createDialogManager({}, 'BASE_DM');
 
/* will not open beacuse of the before_open handler returns false */
const dialogA = dialogManager.createDialog({
    before_open: (d)=>{
        return false;
    }
});
 
/* will console.log 'on dialog opened' after dialog opening */
const dialogB = dialogManager.createDialog({
    on_open: (d)=>{
        console.log('on dialog opened');
    }
});
 
/* will not close after clicking on done button beacuse of the before_done handler returns false */
const dialogC = dialogManager.createDialog({
    before_done: (d)=>{
        console.log('e.g. form validation');
        return false;
    }
});
