ConfirmPopup displays a confirmation overlay displayed relatively to its target.

import ConfirmPopup from 'primevue/confirmpopup';

ConfirmPopup is controlled via the ConfirmationService that needs to be installed as an application plugin.

import {createApp} from 'vue';
import ConfirmationService from 'primevue/confirmationservice';

const app = createApp(App);

The service is available with the useConfirm function for Composition API or using the $confirm property of the application for Options API.

import { useConfirm } from "primevue/useconfirm";

const confirm = useConfirm();

ConfirmPopup is displayed by calling the require method of the $confirm instance by passing the options to customize the Popup. The target attribute is mandatory to align the popup to its referrer.

<Button @click="confirm1($event)" icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>
<Button @click="confirm2($event)" icon="pi pi-times" label="Delete" severity="danger"></Button>

Templating allows customizing the message content.

<ConfirmPopup group="templating">
    <template #message="slotProps">
        <div class="flex flex-column align-items-center w-full gap-3 border-bottom-1 surface-border p-3 mb-3">
            <i :class="slotProps.message.icon" class="text-6xl text-primary-500"></i>
            <p>{{ slotProps.message.message }}</p>
<Button @click="showTemplate($event)" icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>

Headless mode is enabled by defining a container slot that lets you implement entire confirmation UI instead of the default elements.

<ConfirmPopup group="headless">
    <template #container="{ message, acceptCallback, rejectCallback }">
        <div class="bg-gray-900 text-white border-round p-3">
            <span>{{ message.message }}</span>
            <div class="flex align-items-center gap-2 mt-3">
                <Button label="Save" @click="acceptCallback" class="p-button-sm p-button-outlined"></Button>
                <Button label="Cancel" outlined @click="rejectCallback" class="p-button-sm p-button-text"></Button>
<Button @click="requireConfirmation($event)" icon="pi pi-check" label="Confirm"></Button>

Screen Reader

ConfirmPopup component uses alertdialog role and since any attribute is passed to the root element you may define attributes like aria-label or aria-labelledby to describe the popup contents. In addition aria-modal is added since focus is kept within the popup.

When require method of the $confirm instance is used and a trigger is passed as a parameter, ConfirmPopup adds aria-expanded state attribute and aria-controls to the trigger so that the relation between the trigger and the dialog is defined.

<ConfirmPopup id="confirm" aria-label="popup" />

<Button @click="openPopup($event)" label="Confirm" id="confirmButton" :aria-expanded="isVisible" :aria-controls="isVisible ? 'confirm' : null" />

<script setup>
const confirm = useConfirm();
const isVisible = ref(false);
const openPopup = (event) => {
        target: event.currentTarget,
        message: 'Are you sure you want to proceed?',
        header: 'Confirmation',
        onShow: () => {
            isVisible.value = true;
        onHide: () => {
            isVisible.value = false;
