Bulma – modal component + React +Flask-RESTful

In the post I will describe how to activate the modal component from the Bulma framework, so that after pressing the delete row-contract button in the contract table, it is possible to confirm or cancel the deletion of the contract.

  {cursor && Object.keys(cursor).map(
      (keyName, keyIndex) =>
      <tr  className="has-text-centered is-size-7"
            <FaEdit />
            <FaTrashAlt onClick={() => 
               title={`Delete contract ${keyIndex+1}`} />
Contract deletion

Instead of directly calling the deleteContract() function, the showModal() function is called, which gets as the id parameter of the selected contract.

The showModal() function sets the variables id and modal, respectively.

const [modal, setModal] = useState(false)
const [id, setId] = useState()

const showModal = (id) => {

The id variable stores the id number of the selected contract, while the modal variable stores the boolean value that specifies the state of the modal window (displayed or invisible-default). Calling the setModal() function changes the default value – false of the modal variable to true.

The code of the modal window displaying the confirmation of contract deletion looks like this:

<div class={`modal ${modal && 'is-active'}`}>
  <div class="modal-background"></div>
  <div class="modal-card column is-one-quarter">
     <header class="modal-card-head">
        <p class="modal-card-title has-text-danger">
           Delete Contract?
      <section class="modal-card-foot">
         <button class="button is-danger" 
             onClick={() => deleteContract(id)}>Delete
         <button class="button"
             onClick={() => setModal(!modal)}>Cancel

Selecting the Cancel button makes the modal window invisible. Selecting the Delete button activates the function of deleting the contract, i.e.

const deleteContract = (id) => {
    .filter((row) => row.id !== id))
  fetch('/api/contract/delete', {
    method: 'POST',
    headers: {
      'Content-type': 'application/json',
       body: JSON.stringify({'id': id, 'token': token})
  .then(res => res.json())
  .then(data => console.log(data))
  .catch((err) => console.log(err));

The setCursor function gets the values of the cursor object and filters them so that the selected contract is discarded. Then the api is called in Flask, in addition to the contract id, the user’s token is also sent. The result of a successful contract canceling is displayed in the console.

What the API looks like in Flask I described in the previous post.

In the last row of the deleteContract() function, I set the modal window inactive.
