UI Modal Service

Modals have similar characteristics to that of Dialogs, but are often larger, and only allow for a single instance to be viewable at once. They also tend to be centered, and not draggable. They're commonly used when:

  • We need to grab the user's attention
  • We need user input
  • We need to show additional information

If you're curious about the DOs and DON'Ts of dialogs and modals, check out this article: "Best Practices for Modals / Overlays / Dialog Windows"



For a more detailed look on the options and return values each of these methods is expected to support, check out it's interface in @ohif/core
