Configuration

An object defining configuration properties for the ActionSheet UI component.

See Also

cancelText

The text displayed in the button that closes the action sheet.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'Cancel'

dataSource

Binds the UI component to data.

Default Value: null

The ActionSheet works with collections of string values or objects.

Depending on your data source, bind the ActionSheet to data as follows. If the data source provides objects, also specify the itemTemplate. You can skip this part if the objects contain fields described in the items section.

  • Data Array
    Assign the array to the dataSource option.

  • Read-Only Data in JSON Format
    Set the dataSource property to the URL of a JSON file or service that returns JSON data.

  • OData
    Implement an ODataStore.

  • Web API, PHP, MongoDB
    Use one of the following extensions to enable the server to process data according to the protocol DevExtreme UI components use:

    Then, use the createStore method to configure access to the server on the client as shown below. This method is part of DevExtreme.AspNet.Data.

  • Any other data source
    Implement a CustomStore.

Regardless of the data source on the input, the ActionSheet always wraps it in the DataSource object. This object allows you to sort, filter, group, and perform other data shaping operations. To get its instance, call the getDataSource() method.

NOTE

Review the following notes about data binding:

  • Do not specify the items property if you specified the dataSource, and vice versa.

  • Data field names cannot be equal to this and should not contain the following characters: ., :, [, and ].

  • The stores and DataSource have methods to process and update data. However, the methods do not allow you to perform particular tasks (for example, replace the entire dataset, reconfigure data access at runtime). For such tasks, create a new array, store, or DataSource and assign it to the dataSource property as shown in the articles about changing properties in jQuery, Angular, React, and Vue.

height

Specifies the UI component's height.

Type:

Number

|

String

|

Function

Return Value:

Number

|

String

The UI component's height.

Default Value: undefined

This property accepts a value of one of the following types:

  • Number
    The height in pixels.

  • String
    A CSS-accepted measurement of height. For example, "55px", "80%", "inherit".

  • Function
    A function returning either of the above. For example:

    JavaScript
    height: function() {
        return window.innerHeight / 1.5;
    }

hint

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

hoverStateEnabled

Specifies whether the UI component changes its state when a user pauses on it.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

itemComponent

An alias for the itemTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a custom component. Refer to Using a Custom Component for more information.

itemHoldTimeout

The time period in milliseconds before the onItemHold event is raised.

Type:

Number

Default Value: 750

itemRender

An alias for the itemTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a rendering function. Refer to Using a Rendering Function for more information.

items[]

An array of items displayed by the UI component.

Array<String | dxActionSheetItem | any>

Raised Events: optionChanged

The items array can contain:

  • Strings
  • Objects with fields described in this section
  • Objects with any other fields. In this case, specify the itemTemplate.

If you need to update the UI component items, reassign the entire items array as shown in the following example:

JavaScript
actionSheetInstance.option('items', newItems);

As an alternative to items, you can use the dataSource property. It accepts the DataSource object, whose underlying stores provide an API that allows you to update individual items without reassigning the entire item collection.

NOTE
Do not use the items property if you use dataSource, and vice versa.

JavaScript
DevExpress.config({
    rtlEnabled: true
});
