Modals
Modals can be used for dialogs, popups and alike.

Standard modals

An action or feature that can be handled in a modal popup. Always provide options to cancel the action and leave the modal (e.g. a close button in the top and a cancel button in the bottom). Use a primary colored button to highlight the action needed.

<div class="modal" id="modalDemo1" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="modalDemo1Label">
<div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"><i class="fas fa-times"></i></button>
<h4 class="modal-title" id="modalDemo1Label">Send notification</h4>
</div>
<div class="modal-body">
...
</div>
<div class="modal-footer">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-link" data-dismiss="modal">Cancel</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Send</button>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
Do not use modals for very complex tasks; they can be difficult to handle on smaller devices.

Buttons in footer

By seperating them, you can have multiple buttons in the modal footer. Standard behavior is buttons aligning to the right. Look at the following example code on how to have one or more buttons aligning to left:
A modal footer with both delete, cancel and save buttons.
<button type="button" class="btn btn-link">Cancel</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Save</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger pull-left">Delete</button>

Critical information modals

Example use case: The user initiated a delete function. You can use a modal popup to ask the user to confirm this destructive action. Use a red button to signal caution.

<div class="modal" id="modelName" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="modelNameLabel">
<div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"><i class="fas fa-times"></i></button>
<h4 class="modal-title" id="modelNameLabel">Delete</h4>
</div>
<div class="modal-body">Are you sure you want to delete this?</div>
<div class="modal-footer">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-link" data-dismiss="modal">Cancel</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger">Delete</button>
</div>
</div>

</div>

Success modals

Example use case: An action initiated by the user has completed successfully. You can use a modal popup to tell it to the user. Use a green button, or icon, to signal success.

<div class="modal" id="modalName" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="modalNameLabel">
<div class="modal-dialog" role="document">

<div class="modal-body text-center">
<p><i class="fas fa-check-circle fa-3x text-success"></i></p>
<p>The action was completed successfully.</p></div>

<button type="button" class="btn btn-success" data-dismiss="modal">Okay</button>
