Action Sheet     

Action Sheets slide up from the bottom edge of the device screen, and display a set of options with the ability to confirm or cancel an action. Action Sheets can sometimes be used as an alternative to menus, however, they should not be used for navigation.

The Action Sheet always appears above any other components on the page, and must be dismissed in order to interact with the underlying content. When it is triggered, the rest of the page darkens to give more focus to the Action Sheet options.

Action Sheets can be displayed as a list or as a grid, with icons or with avatars. They can be used either as a component in your Vue file templates, or as a globally available method.

Basic Usage as a Method

First, we install it:

Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
plugins: ['ActionSheet']

Now let’s see how we can use it:

// outside of a Vue file
import { ActionSheet } from 'quasar'
(Promise) ActionSheet.create(configObj)

// inside of a Vue file
(Promise) this.$q.actionSheet(configObj)

Basic syntax for the config object:

title: 'Article Actions',

// specify ONLY IF you want grid mode:
grid: true,

// optional; change dismiss label (only for iOS theme)
dismissLabel: 'Quit',

actions: [
label: 'Delete',

// Optional
color: 'negative',

// Choose one of the following two:
icon: 'delete', // specify ONLY IF using icon
avatar: 'assets/some-avatar.png', // specify ONLY IF using avatar

// optional; what to do when user chooses this action;
// Can also be handled later by using the returned Promise
// and identifying the action from "action" param
handler () {
console.log('Deleted Article')

{}, // optional separator


When user hits the phone/tablet back button (only for Cordova apps), the Action Sheet will get closed automatically.
Also, when on a desktop browser, hitting the <ESCAPE> key also closes the Action Sheet.

Handling Outcome

The returning object when creating an ActionSheet is a Promise, so you can leverage the Promise API to handle the outcome:

.then(action => {
// user picked an action

// { label: 'Joe', ... }
.catch(() => {
// user dismissed Action Sheet

// OR with async/await:
async showActionSheet () {
try {
const action = await this.$q.actionSheet({...})

// user picked an action at this point
// { label: 'Joe', ... }
catch () {
// user dismissed Action Sheet

Basic Usage As a Component

First, we install it:

Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
components: ['QActionSheet']

Now let’s see how we can use it:

title="Action Sheet"
label: 'Delete',
icon: 'delete',
color: 'red',
handler: deleteAction
label: 'Share',
icon: 'share',
color: 'primary'

// optional separator

// continuing with other actions
label: 'Play',
icon: 'gamepad'
label: 'Favorite',
icon: 'favorite'
there's an optional "title" slot if you have
something very specific for the ActionSheet title
(it replaces "title" prop)

export default {
data () {
// model for QActionSheet example
return { actionSheet: false }
methods: {
// custom handler for one of the actions
deleteAction () {
// @ok event will still be triggered

// user picked one of the actions
onOk (item) {
if (item.handler) {
// if we've already triggered a handler
color: 'secondary',
message: `Clicked on "${item.label}"`

// user dismissed ActionSheet
onCancel () {
color: 'tertiary',
icon: 'done',
message: 'Action Sheet was dismissed'

// when we show it to the user
onShow () { },

// when it gets hidden
onHide () { }
