Popover

Available since 1.1.0 Last updated 1.2.1

The popover is a wrapping component that accepts a “control” as well as a “body.

A control can be anything that you want to trigger the interaction from. The body will be the contents of what you reveal on the page after triggering the popover. Commonly used as the interaction/wrapping component when composing “dropdowns”, “contextual menus”, “mega menu”, etc, when paired with the menu component.

As a general rule, it is suggested that one popover be revealed on the page at any given time. Opening one popover should close all others to prevent multiple layers and collisions of several popovers.


Popover Structure

The basic wrapping structure of a popover.

  • fd-popover - wrapper for the whole container
  • fd-popover__control - control element to toggle the display of the popover
  • fd-popover__body - wrapper that contains the popover content


Modifiers

  • --left, --right - modifier classes for fd-popover__body placement
  • --no-arrow - modifier to render popover__body without an arrow


Placement Options

There are four placement options:

  • Left Aligned - This is the default palcement and no extra modifier classes are needed
  • Right Aligned - A modifier class --right should be applied at the block level wrapper fd-popover and --right to the fd-popover__body warapper
  • No Arrow & Left Aligned - --no-arrow modifier class on the fd-popover__body wrapper
  • No Arrow & Right Aligned - Modifier classes --right at the block level wrapper fd-popover, --right and --no-arrow calss on the fd-popover_body
