Understanding the Ionic Framework Action Sheet

"Many times while designing and developing a mobile app there is a lack of screen real estate meaning we have to get creative with how we present actions and options to the user. A popular pattern, especially on iOS, is to use the action sheet to present a list of contextual options. From the Ionic Docs “The Action Sheet is a slide-up pane that lets the user choose from a set of options. Dangerous options are highlighted in red and made obvious.” These action sheets are shown when certain elements on tapped or in many cases, long tapped (a long tap is a user holds their finger on an element until options are presented).

In this article we’ll look at creating an action sheet in an Ionic App using the built in $ionicActionSheet service."
