<Confirm> leverages Material UI’s <Dialog> component to implement a confirmation popup.

Confirm dialog


To ask a confirmation to the user before performing an action, have the action button open a <Confirm>.

For instance, here is how to build a delete button that removes the record after asking for confirmation:

import { useState } from 'react';
import {
} from 'react-admin';

const BulkResetViewsButton = () => {
    const record = useRecordContext();
    const [open, setOpen] = useState(false);

    const [remove, { isLoading }] = useDelete(
        { id: record && record.id }

    const handleClick = () => setOpen(true);
    const handleDialogClose = () => setOpen(false);
    const handleConfirm = () => {

    return (
            <Button label="Delete" onClick={handleClick} />
                title={`Delete post #${record && record.id}`}
                content="Are you sure you want to delete this item?"


Prop Required Type Default Description
title Required string - Title of the dialog
content Required ReactNode - Body of the dialog
onClose Required Mouse EventHandler - onClick event handler of the cancel button
onConfirm Required Mouse EventHandler - onClick event handler of the confirm button
isOpen Optional boolean false true to show the dialog, false to hide it
loading Optional boolean false Boolean to be applied to the disabled prop of the action buttons
cancel Optional string ‘ra.action. cancel’ Label of the cancel button
confirm Optional string ‘ra.action. confirm’ Label of the confirm button
confirmColor Optional string ‘primary’ Color of the confirm button
ConfirmIcon Optional ReactElement <Check Circle/> Icon element of the confirm button
CancelIcon Optional ReactElement <Error OutlineIcon/> Icon element of the cancel button
translate Options Optional { id?: string, name?: string } {} Custom id and name to be used in the dialog title
sx Optional SxProps ’’ Material UI shortcut for defining custom styles with access to the theme

Text props such as title, content, cancel, confirm and translateOptions are translatable. You can pass translation keys in these props. Note: content is only translatable when value is string, otherwise it renders the content as a ReactNode.


The <Confirm> component accepts the usual className prop. You can also override many styles of the inner components thanks to the sx property (as most Material UI components, see their documentation about it). This property accepts the following subclasses:

Rule name Description
& .RaConfirm-confirmPrimary Applied to the confirm button when confirmColor is primary
& .RaConfirm-confirmWarning Applied to the confirm button when confirmColor is warning

To override the style of all instances of <Confirm> using the Material UI style overrides, use the RaConfirm key.

Delete With Confirmation

React-admin’s <DeleteButton> lets user delete the current record in an optimistic way: after clicking the button, users see a notification for the deletion with an “undo” link to cancel the deletion.

Alternately, you can force the user to confirm the deletion by using <DeleteButton mutationMode="pessimistic">. Under the hood, this leverages the <Confirm> component to ask for confirmation before deleting the record.

import { List, Datagrid, TextField, DeleteButton } from 'react-admin';

const PostList = () => (
            <TextField source="id" />
            <TextField source="title" />
            <DeleteButton mutationMode="pessimistic" />

The same goes for deleting multiple records in a bulk action: use <BulkDeleteButton mutationMode="pessimistic"> to ask a confirmation before the deletion.

import { List, Datagrid, TextField, BulkDeleteButton } from 'react-admin';

const PostList = () => (
        <Datagrid PostBulkActionButtons={<BulkDeleteButton mutationMode="pessimistic" />}>
            <TextField source="id" />
            <TextField source="title" />
