An iOS like action sheet for jQuery Mobile

What is it

A very easy to use and fully markup-driven action sheet

How To Use

  • Clone this repository or download a tagged version. I suggest to use the master branch but jqm 1.alpha and 1.beta may work better with v1.
  • If you prefer "learning by doing" play around with pages contained in the examples folder.
  • If not; Include actionsheet css and js to the first page of your application. Then simply place a HTML Element on the page you like to open the popup. A link tag for example. Add the data-role "actionsheet" to it. You can place it within the header as well as within the content. Both should work. Now add a div directly following this link. Wrap all content you like to show in the popup into this div. Ready. See the following HTML
<a data-icon="plus" data-role="actionsheet">Open</a>
    <a data-role="button" href="#">Action 1</a>
    <a data-role="button" href="#">Action 2</a>
    <a data-role="button" href="#">Action 3</a>
    <!-- This close button is optional. The widget also closes if you click or touch outside of the popup -->
    <a data-role="button" data-rel="close" href="#">Cancel</a>

Also you can use html ids to associate toggle and sheet. This way the sheet must not directly follow the toggle.

<a data-role="actionsheet" data-sheet='sheet0'>Open</a>

.... A lot a lot a lot markup in between ....

<div id='sheet0'>
    <h1>This is sheet0 speaking</h1>
  • If you like to change the in -out Animation you can do that by editing the keyframes in


  • Easy to configure CSS3 based keyframe animations
  • Popup content can be any HTML
  • No js coding needed.
  • Nice default look
