Modal Layout

Modal layout

Introduction

It is also possible, with the Store Framework, to create a modals experience in the store. Whether to subscribe to a newsletter or create a quick view, Modal Layout works like all other layout blocks, in which any block can be used as its content.

In this step, we will then build a simpler modal, and then build a functional Quick View.

A little more about how Modal Layout works

The Modal Layout block divides its logic into two sub-blocks: modal-trigger andmodal-layout.

The modal-trigger is used to choose which block should be responsible for triggering the modal behavior, you could use an image, text, link or the block you prefer.

The modal-layout defines which child blocks will be used within the modal. It is, therefore, in this block that the content of the modal itself must be placed.

Activity

  1. At your home, add a modal-trigger # first to the blocks:
{
  "store.home": {
    "blocks": [
      ...
      "modal-trigger#first"
    ]
  }
}
  1. Then define the modal-trigger#first with a text from Click Me:
{
  ...
  "modal-trigger#first": {
    "children": [
      "rich-text#trigger"
    ]
  },
  "rich-text#trigger": {
    "props": {
      "text": "CLICK ME"
    }
  }
}
  1. Put the modal-layout#first as children of the modal-trigger#first:
{
  ...
  "modal-trigger#first": {
    "children": [
      "rich-text#trigger",
+     "modal-layout#first"
    ]
  },
  ...
+ "modal-layout#first": {
+   "children": [
+     "rich-text#hello"
+   ]
+ },
+ "rich-text#hello": {
+   "props": {
+     "text": "Hello"
+   }
+ }
  ...
}

The result, then, should be:
