Show Native Prompt

In this section, we'll look at how to use the Alert component to display messages to the user.

Alert is wraps the standard AlertView and simplifies its usage.

Difference between Alert and AlertView

Alert wraps AlertView module and provides more functionality for displaying alerts.

When to use Alert

  • Alerts are used to display messages to the user and are generally used to inform the user of something that has happened.

  • Alerts can be used to get user approval or to display errors.

  • Main use cases for alerts are:

    • User approval

    • Errors

    • Success

    • Warnings


If you need a user prompt to get input from the user inside an alert, please use the AlertView component.

Sort Alert Buttons
  • To sort the POSITIVE and NEGATIVE buttons, the last button in the buttons array is the first button in the Alert.

import Page1Design from 'generated/pages/page1';
import PageTitleLayout from 'components/PageTitleLayout';
import { Route, BaseRouter as Router } from '@smartface/router';
import { withDismissAndBackButton } from '@smartface/mixins';
import Button from '@smartface/native/ui/button';
import AlertView from '@smartface/native/ui/alertview';

export default class Page1 extends withDismissAndBackButton(Page1Design) {
private disposeables: (() => void)[] = [];
constructor(private router?: Router, private route?: Route) {
// This button is added from UI editor
this.btnNext.on('press', () => {
title: 'Delete',
message: 'Are you sure you want to delete this item?',
buttons: [
text: 'Cancel',
type: AlertView.Android.ButtonType.NEGATIVE,
onClick: () => {
// cancelFunction();
text: 'Delete',
type: AlertView.Android.ButtonType.POSITIVE,
onClick: () => {
// deleteFunction();

* @event onShow
* This event is called when a page appears on the screen (everytime).
onShow() {

* @event onLoad

onLoad() {
this.headerBar.leftItemEnabled = false;

onHide(): void {

this.disposeables.forEach((item) => item());
