     k-title="{{'Title' | translate}}" 
    <span>Add content here</span> 

<i class="icon-edit cursor" ng-click=""></i>


  • ng-model: Used for opening and closing the popup

  • k-modal: Default value is true. Fades the background and prevents click events outside the popup

  • k-on-close: Event triggered on closing the popup

  • k-title: Title of the popup

  • k-height: Height of the popup. Ex. k-height="50%"

  • k-width: Width of the popup. Ex. k-width="50%"

  • component: Name of the component that will be displayed inside the popoup. See seperate secion about popups using content components

  • params: Parameters that will be passed to the popup component. See seperate secion about popups using content components

Popup window using component template

<div rb-window ng-model="vm.myWindow" k-title="{{'Title' | translate}}" component="componentName" params="vm.params"> 

<i class="icon-edit cursor" ng-click=""></i>

// In viewmodel
vm.params = {
    customerlistUrl:"sales/customers?$filter=Status eq 4",
    customerSelected: function(item) { //callback function                       

Design guideline

A popup should have a minimum and maximum width defined to prevent it from being presented as either too narrow or too wide. Maximum width should not exceed 50% of the viewport.

There should be calculated space enough in top and bottom to account for the height of the close button (X).

If for some reason the content in a popup is so excessive that it can not be fitted into a modal of maximum height and width, then the content in the popup should scroll. Not the actual pop-up.


The popup should have a descriptive header for the action/message in question. Read design guidelines for labels on buttons for info regarding this.
