Long press an element to show options(copy,forward..) like wtsapp?

Hi guys,

Can someone point me to the right direction of how to show options(copy, forward…) when I long press an element (a message in this case) like wtsapp/FB messenger?

I don’t even know what keywords should I be searching…(tried modal, popover, action sheet)


look in the documentation --> there are many build in gestures like onHold :wink:


Thanks for your reply!

Sorry I wasn’t being clear enough… I understand that the gesture is “onHold”, what I am looking for is the black option bubble to be shown (not action sheet, popover, modal)

Like in this image: http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/larger_wm_brw/public/field/image/2014/02/imessage_copy_iphone_5_hero.jpg?itok=bvIgFgBm

okay that will be a little bit difficulty.

per default ionic sets the css-attribute “user-select: none” this supresses the showup of the copy/cut/paste tooltip.

So in you case you can try to overwrite this attribute for your areas.

thanks, will look into that
