The ModalManager component manages one or more modal dialogs. Stacking modals is supported. Multiple dialogs can be shown at once; loading a new component into the ModalManager will overwrite the previous one.




The attributes passed into the component.


element: Element

The root DOM element for the component.

focusTrap: undefined | FocusTrap
keyUpListener: null | ((e: KeyboardEvent) => void) = null
lastSetFocusTrap: undefined | number
modalClosing: boolean = false
state: undefined

Class component state that is persisted between redraws.

Updating this will not automatically trigger a redraw, unlike other frameworks.

This is different to Vnode state, which is always an instance of your class component.

This is undefined by default.



  • Returns a jQuery object for this component's element. If you pass in a selector string, this method will return a jQuery object, using the current element as its buffer.

    For example, calling component.$('li') will return a jQuery object containing all of the li elements inside the DOM element of this component.
