stencil-click-outside

What is it?

stencil-click-outside is a Stencil @ClickOutside decorator that allows you to call component method as the user clicks outside of the host component. Obviously it's very easy. Why then import it as external library? First, because it does not make sense write this boilerplate code in each project. Second, because decorator solution is elegant and convenient.

Installing

In your Stencil project, add stencil-click-outside to your package.json:

npm i stencil-click-outside

How to use it?

It's very simple: you just need to anotate your method with @ClickOutside and it will be called when user clicks outside of component area.

import { Component, h } from "@stencil/core";
import { ClickOutside } from "stencil-click-outside";
 
@Component({ tag: "my-component", shadow: true })
export class MyComponent {
 
  @ClickOutside()
  someMethod() {
    console.log(
      "someMethod was called because user just clicked outside of MyComponent"
    );
  }
 
  render() {
    return <div>Hello, World!</div>;
  }
}

It may sometimes happen that you would like monitor for outside clicks not the whole component's HTMLElement but only some part, a div which you render. This is also possible the API then is as follows:

 
import { Component, h } from '@stencil/core';
import { registerClickOutside } from 'stencil-click-outside';
 
@Component({ tag: 'my-component', shadow: true })
export class MyComponent {
 
  someMethod() {
      console.log("someMethod was called because user just clicked outside of span html element in render method of MyComponent");
    }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <span
          ref={spanEl => registerClickOutside(this, spanEl, () => this.someMethod())}>
            Hello, World!
      </span>;
    )
  }

    exclude: 'button .exclude-click-outside-class'
})
