Prompt on Electron

How to replace the function of javascript

prompt
on electron?

Can someone take me a example?

I try to use this function
prompt
, but an error occurs:


Uncaught Error: prompt() is and will not be supported.

Answer

prompt, confirm and alert are functions which blocks the execution thread of the script until a user input and that's the reason electron team didn't supported it. Instead you can use some third party package for the same reason.

Here are some packages which provides this functionality in async way

https://www.npmjs.com/package/smalltalk

https://www.npmjs.com/package/vex-js

https://www.npmjs.com/package/dialogs
