Needs docs for all the smart view components

How am I supposed to make smart views if you all won’t even give me a list of all your components?

I’m trying to use BetaDropdown because I see it’s a thing you have in your UI library, but how the hell am I supposed to know what args it can even take?

Hello @austinrupie,

The SmartViewEditor is still a recent feature and we don’t have an available components documentation for now.

If you want to use our internal BetaDropdown component, you will have to pass it these (optional) properties:

  • onShow (function)
  • onHide (function)
  • disabled (boolean)

and how do I wrap it in Buttons?

Hello @austinrupie,

I’m not sure I understand what you want to do, add a button that triggers a dropdown? :slight_smile:

I’m asking how to implement this similar to what you have with your Actions dropdown.

How do I implement a dropdown of actions like this using that component?

Can you paste me source code?

Helle @austinrupie,

Here is a code sample that would allow you to implement this view

  as |showDropdown|
  {{#if showDropdown}}
    <ul class="c-dropdown">
      <li class="c-dropdown__item">
        <span class="c-dropdown__item-text">

and here is the corresponding styling

  position: relative;

.c-dropdown {
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 6;
  right: 0;
  top: calc(100% + 4px);
  font-family: "proximanova-regular", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, sans-serif;
  font-size: 16px;
  font-weight: normal;
  line-height: 24px;
  background-color: var(--color-beta-surface);
  color: var(--color-beta-on-surface_light);
  border-radius: 4px;
  border: 1px solid var(--color-beta-on-surface_border);
  box-shadow: var(--shadow-beta-elevation-3);
  padding: 16px;
  max-height: 65vh;
  min-width: 200px;
  max-width: 350px;
  overflow-y: auto;
.c-dropdown__item {
  padding: 12px 16px;
  text-align: left;
  white-space: nowrap;
  cursor: pointer;
  border-radius: 4px;
  display: block;
  overflow: hidden;
  text-overflow: ellipsis;
  white-space: nowrap;
  position: relative;
  color: inherit;
.c-dropdown__item:hover:before {
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0;
  border-radius: 4px;
  opacity: 0.08;
  background-color: var(--color-primary-700);
.c-dropdown__item--disabled {
  color: var(--color-beta-on-surface_disabled);
  cursor: default; 
.c-dropdown__item--disabled:hover {
  background-color: var(--color-beta-surface); 
.c-dropdown__item--disabled:hover:before {
  background-color: var(--color-beta-surface); 

.c-dropdown__item-text {
  position: relative;
  z-index: 2; 

Let me know if it helps :slightly_smiling_face:

This helps a lot!

and how are you implementing showDropdown?

You don’t need to implement it, it’s already handled by the component we provide.

If you test the code snipped I provided to you, you will see that the dropdown is working fine :slightly_smiling_face:
