Cordova MessageBox Plugin

by Olivier Louvignes

DESCRIPTION

  • This plugin provides an unified API to use the UIAlertView native component from iOS.

  • This plugin is built for Cordova >= v2.1.0 with ARC.

  • Compared to the iPhone/Prompt plugin, it is more documented & simpler to understand. It does also provide new options for prompt (message, multiline, input type password).

  • There is a Sencha Touch 2.0 plugin to easily leverage this plugin here

PLUGIN SETUP FOR IOS

Using this plugin requires Cordova iOS.

  1. Make sure your Xcode project has been updated for Cordova
  2. Rename the src/ios folder to MessageBox, drag and drop it from Finder to your Plugins folder in XCode, using "Create groups for any added folders"
  3. Add the .js files to your www folder on disk, and add reference(s) to the .js files using <script> tags in your html file(s)

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/plugins/MessageBox.js"></script>

  4. Add new entry with key MessageBox and value MessageBox to Plugins in Cordova.plist/Cordova.plist

JAVASCRIPT INTERFACE (IOS)

// Alert
window.plugins.messageBox.alert({title: 'Title', message: 'Message'}, function(button) {
    var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 0);
    console.log("messageBox.alert:" + JSON.stringify(args));
});

// Confirm
window.plugins.messageBox.confirm({title: 'Title', message: 'Message'}, function(button) {
    var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 0);
    console.log("messageBox.confirm:" + JSON.stringify(args));
});

// Default prompt
window.plugins.messageBox.prompt({title: 'Title', message: 'Message'}, function(button, value) {
    var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 0);
    console.log("messageBox.prompt:" + JSON.stringify(args));
});

// Prompt a password
var options = {
    title: 'Please enter your password',
    placeholder: 'password',
    type: 'password'
}
window.plugins.messageBox.prompt(options, function(button, value) {
    var args = Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 0);
    console.log("messageBox.prompt:" + JSON.stringify(args));
});
  • Check source for additional configuration.

BUGS AND CONTRIBUTIONS

Patches welcome! Send a pull request. Since this is not a part of Cordova Core (which requires a CLA), this should be easier.
