Description #

A <sp-action-bar> delivers a floating action bar that is a convenient way to deliver stateful actions in cases like selection mode. <sp-action-bar> can be deployed in two variants beyond the default: [varient="fixed"] to position the element in relation to the page, and [variant=sticky] to position the content in relation to content that may scroll.

Usage #

See it on NPM! How big is this package in your project? Try it on webcomponents.dev

yarn add @spectrum-web-components/action-bar

Import the side effectful registration of <sp-action-bar> via:

import '@spectrum-web-components/action-bar/sp-action-bar.js';

When looking to leverage the ActionBar base class as a type and/or for extension purposes, do so via:

import { ActionBar } from '@spectrum-web-components/action-bar';

Example #

<sp-action-bar open>
<sp-checkbox indeterminate>228 Selected</sp-checkbox>
<sp-action-group quiet>
<sp-action-button label="Edit">
<sp-icon-edit slot="icon"></sp-icon-edit>
<sp-action-button label="More">
<sp-icon-more slot="icon"></sp-icon-more>

Variants #

Fixed #

When using [variant="fixed"], the <sp-action-bar> will display by default at the bottom left of the window and can be customized via CSS from the outside.

<h4>Look down and to the left when toggling.</h4>
<sp-action-bar variant="fixed">
<sp-checkbox indeterminate>228 Selected</sp-checkbox>
onclick="javascript:this.previousElementSibling.open = !this.previousElementSibling.open;"

Toggle fixed action bar

Sticky #

When using [variant="sticky"], be sure you've spent some time touching up on how sticky really works to ensure the most successful delivery of your content.

<section style="position: relative; max-height: 6em; overflow: auto;">
<h4>Scroll down for toggle button</h4>
<sp-action-bar variant="sticky" style="top: 0;">
<sp-checkbox indeterminate>228 Selected</sp-checkbox>
