How to dismiss an inline modal?

Hey guys,

how can I dismiss an Inline Modal by a button action?

Do I somehow have to use “ViewChild”?

Thanks in advance,
Oliver

Well works with the @ViewChild, but the Inline Modal is only triggered once because of the ID – and all item have the same. Any idea how to use inline Modal in this case?

<ion-header collapse="fade" [translucent]="true" class="ion-no-border">
  <ion-toolbar>
    <ion-buttons slot="start">
      <ion-back-button
        color="dark"
        defaultHref="/"
        [text]="platform.is('ipad') ? 'Settings':''"
      ></ion-back-button>
    </ion-buttons>
    <ion-title class="ion-no-padding">Manage Categories</ion-title>
  </ion-toolbar>
</ion-header>

<ion-content [fullscreen]="true" forceOverscroll="true">
  <ion-header collapse="condense">
    <ion-toolbar>
      <ion-title size="large">Manage Categories</ion-title>
    </ion-toolbar>
  </ion-header>

  <ion-list class="ion-margin-top">
    <ion-item
      *ngFor="let category of categoriesService.categories"
      button
      id="openModal"
    >
      <ion-label class="ion-text-wrap">
        <ion-text class="bold">
          <p class="ion-label">{{ category.name }}</p>
        </ion-text>
        <ion-note>{{ category.description }}</ion-note>
      </ion-label>
      <ion-toggle
        slot="end"
        [checked]="category.active_flg === 1"
        (ionChange)="setActive(category.id)"
      ></ion-toggle>
    </ion-item>
  </ion-list>

  <ion-fab vertical="bottom" horizontal="end" slot="fixed">
    <ion-fab-button>
      <ion-icon name="add"></ion-icon>
    </ion-fab-button>
  </ion-fab>

  <ion-modal trigger="openModal" #inlineModal>
    <ng-template>
      <ion-header class="ion-no-border">  
        <ion-toolbar>
          <ion-buttons slot="end">
            <ion-button (click)="dismissModal()">Close</ion-button>
          </ion-buttons>
        </ion-toolbar>
      </ion-header>
    
      <div class="ion-padding">
        My Inline Modal
      </div>
    </ng-template>
  </ion-modal>
</ion-content>
import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { Platform, ModalController } from '@ionic/angular';
import { ActivatedRoute } from '@angular/router';
import { CategoriesService } from '../../../services/connector/categories.service';
import { ICategoryItem } from '../../../types';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-events-categories',
  templateUrl: './events-categories.page.html',
  styleUrls: ['./events-categories.page.scss'],
})
export class EventsCategoriesPage implements OnInit {
  @ViewChild('inlineModal') inlineModal!: ModalController;
  private categories:ICategoryItem[] = null; 

  constructor(
    public platform: Platform,
    private route: ActivatedRoute,
    private modalController: ModalController,
    private categoriesService: CategoriesService,
  ) { 
    console.log(this.route);
  }

  ngOnInit() {
  }

  setActive(id: number) {
    this.categoriesService.setCategoryItem(
      id,
      'active_flg',
      (this.categoriesService.getCategory(id)).active_flg === 1 ? null : 1);
  }

  showCategoryDetails(item: ICategoryItem) {
    console.log(item);
  }

  dismissModal() {
    this.inlineModal.dismiss();
  }
}

I think the code below will be sufficient. This method closes the modal on top of the stack.
No need to use ViewChild.

this.modalController.dismiss()

Sure? Since it is an inline modal anyway?
