1. Description

Show a sheet of options the user can choose from.

  • Compatible with Cordova Plugman
  • iOS uses the native UIActionSheet
  • Android uses the native AlertDialog
  • WP8 uses the native Popup

2. Screenshots

iOS

   

Android

   

Windows Phone 8

   

3. Installation

Automatically (CLI / Plugman)

$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-actionsheet
$ cordova prepare

ActionSheet.js is brought in automatically. There is no need to change or add anything in your html.

PhoneGap Build

ActionSheet works with PhoneGap build too! Just add the following xml to your config.xml to always use the latest version of this plugin:

<plugin name="cordova-plugin-actionsheet" />

ActionSheet.js is brought in automatically. Make sure though you include a reference to cordova.js in your index.html's head:

<script type="text/javascript" src="cordova.js"></script>

4. Usage

show

Check the demo code to get you going quickly, or copy-paste some of the code below to replicate the ActionSheets of the screenshots above.

Also, wait for deviceready to fire before using plugins in general!

  var callback = function(buttonIndex) {
    setTimeout(function() {
      // like other Cordova plugins (prompt, confirm) the buttonIndex is 1-based (first button is index 1)
      alert('button index clicked: ' + buttonIndex);
    });
  };

  function testShareSheet() {
    var options = {
        androidTheme: window.plugins.actionsheet.ANDROID_THEMES.THEME_DEVICE_DEFAULT_LIGHT, // default is THEME_TRADITIONAL
        title: 'What do you want with this image?',
        subtitle: 'Choose wisely, my friend', // supported on iOS only
        buttonLabels: ['Share via Facebook', 'Share via Twitter'],
        androidEnableCancelButton : true, // default false
        winphoneEnableCancelButton : true, // default false
        addCancelButtonWithLabel: 'Cancel',
        addDestructiveButtonWithLabel : 'Delete it',
        position: [20, 40], // for iPad pass in the [x, y] position of the popover
        destructiveButtonLast: true // you can choose where the destructive button is shown
    };
    // Depending on the buttonIndex, you can now call shareViaFacebook or shareViaTwitter
    // of the SocialSharing plugin (https://github.com/EddyVerbruggen/SocialSharing-PhoneGap-Plugin)
    window.plugins.actionsheet.show(options, callback);
  };

  function testDeleteSheet() {
    var options = {
        'addCancelButtonWithLabel': 'Cancel',
        'addDestructiveButtonWithLabel' : 'Delete note'
    };
    window.plugins.actionsheet.show(options, callback);
  };

  function testLogoutSheet() {
    var options = {
        'buttonLabels': ['Log out'],
        'androidEnableCancelButton' : true, // default false
        'winphoneEnableCancelButton' : true, // default false
        'addCancelButtonWithLabel': 'Cancel'
    };
    window.plugins.actionsheet.show(options, callback);
  };

On iOS, you can also position the actionSheet origin by adding position: [100, 200]

hide

If for some reason you want to hide the actionsheet programmatically, do this:

  // options and callbacks are optional, so either approach will work:
  window.plugins.actionsheet.hide();
  window.plugins.actionsheet.hide({}, onSuccess, onError);

6. Change history

  • 2.3.3 Default iPad popup is now in the center (was in the top left corner)
  • 2.3.1 Added subtitle (iOS) and destructiveButtonLast preferences. Also, iOS now uses the newer UIAlertController instead of UIActionSheet.
  • 2.2.2 OK, 2.2.1 has issues with Russian and the like, so reverted. Just add <meta charset="utf-8" /> to your html file.
  • 2.2.1 Encoding of diacritical characters fixed on iOS, so you can now use EspaƱol as a title or button label.
  • 1.1.6 You can now set the iOS actionSheet origin position (uses the iOS actionSheet.showFromRect method)
  • 1.1.2 You can now select a theme for your Android popup, see the first example above
