Dialog dilemmas and modal mischief: a deep dive into popovers and how to build them

A presentation at Coven of Wisdom - CSS Edition in in Eindhoven, Netherlands by Hidde de Vries

Our design systems commonly feature components that show on top of other content: tooltips, date pickers, menus and teaching UI, to name just a few. There are many ways to build them, and new features in the web platform are about to make this a whole lot easier. You might not even need JavaScript. In this talk, you’ll learn all about dialogs, including the new ‘popover’ attribute, “modality” and using the top layer.


The following resources were mentioned during the presentation or are useful additional information.
