This component class offers primarily some configuration options for modal dialogs.
The modal can be configured for the following aspects:
the overall size of the acquired space.
some variants dealing with positioning (does not really work yet for all options)
the content itself; can be arbitrary HTML elements or subcomponents
a predefined close button that can be used optionally
There are two possible overall strategies for rendering the overlay:
only once, directly below the top modal (the default behaviour)
before every new modal, so the more gets stacked, the more overlays gets rendered!
The actual rendering of the overlay is done within a separate interface called Overlay. There is currently one implementation DefaultOverlay that offers the possibility to freely inject the styling, so for most use cases it might be sufficient to just use the former. If there is a need to render a different structure or to bypass the dev.fritz2.styling.theme.Theme.zIndices management, a custom implementation is the way to go. The interface also enforces to pass the rendering strategy identifier via the Overlay.method property.
For a detailed understanding have a look into the ModalComponent.show function and the
