BottomSheet

Bottom sheets are surfaces containing supplementary content that are anchored to the bottom of the screen.

Two classes are available to you MDListBottomSheet and MDGridBottomSheet for standard bottom sheets dialogs:

Usage MDListBottomSheet

from kivy.lang import Builder

from kivymd.toast import toast
from kivymd.uix.bottomsheet import MDListBottomSheet
from kivymd.app import MDApp

KV = '''
MDScreen:

    MDToolbar:
        title: "Example BottomSheet"
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 10

    MDRaisedButton:
        text: "Open list bottom sheet"
        on_release: app.show_example_list_bottom_sheet()
        pos_hint: {"center_x": .5, "center_y": .5}
'''


class Example(MDApp):
    def build(self):
        return Builder.load_string(KV)

    def callback_for_menu_items(self, *args):
        toast(args[0])

    def show_example_list_bottom_sheet(self):
        bottom_sheet_menu = MDListBottomSheet()
        for i in range(1, 11):
            bottom_sheet_menu.add_item(
                f"Standart Item {i}",
                lambda x, y=i: self.callback_for_menu_items(
                    f"Standart Item {y}"
                ),
            )
        bottom_sheet_menu.open()


Example().run()

The add_item method of the MDListBottomSheet class takes the following arguments:

text - element text;

callback - function that will be called when clicking on an item;

There is also an optional argument icon, which will be used as an icon to the left of the item:

Using the MDGridBottomSheet class is similar to using the MDListBottomSheet class:

from kivy.lang import Builder

from kivymd.toast import toast
from kivymd.uix.bottomsheet import MDGridBottomSheet
from kivymd.app import MDApp

KV = '''
MDScreen:

    MDToolbar:
        title: 'Example BottomSheet'
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 10

    MDRaisedButton:
        text: "Open grid bottom sheet"
        on_release: app.show_example_grid_bottom_sheet()
        pos_hint: {"center_x": .5, "center_y": .5}
'''


class Example(MDApp):
    def build(self):
        return Builder.load_string(KV)

    def callback_for_menu_items(self, *args):
        toast(args[0])

    def show_example_grid_bottom_sheet(self):
        bottom_sheet_menu = MDGridBottomSheet()
        data = {
            "Facebook": "facebook-box",
            "YouTube": "youtube",
            "Twitter": "twitter-box",
            "Da Cloud": "cloud-upload",
            "Camera": "camera",
        }
        for item in data.items():
            bottom_sheet_menu.add_item(
                item[0],
                lambda x, y=item[0]: self.callback_for_menu_items(y),
                icon_src=item[1],
            )
        bottom_sheet_menu.open()


Example().run()

You can use custom content for bottom sheet dialogs:

from kivy.lang import Builder
from kivy.factory import Factory

from kivymd.uix.bottomsheet import MDCustomBottomSheet
from kivymd.app import MDApp

KV = '''
<ItemForCustomBottomSheet@OneLineIconListItem>
    on_press: app.custom_sheet.dismiss()
    icon: ""

    IconLeftWidget:
        icon: root.icon


<ContentCustomSheet@BoxLayout>:
    orientation: "vertical"
    size_hint_y: None
    height: "400dp"

    MDToolbar:
        title: 'Custom bottom sheet:'

    ScrollView:

        MDGridLayout:
            cols: 1
            adaptive_height: True

            ItemForCustomBottomSheet:
                icon: "page-previous"
                text: "Preview"

            ItemForCustomBottomSheet:
                icon: "exit-to-app"
                text: "Exit"


MDScreen:

    MDToolbar:
        title: 'Example BottomSheet'
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 10

    MDRaisedButton:
        text: "Open custom bottom sheet"
        on_release: app.show_example_custom_bottom_sheet()
        pos_hint: {"center_x": .5, "center_y": .5}
'''


class Example(MDApp):
    custom_sheet = None

    def build(self):
        return Builder.load_string(KV)

    def show_example_custom_bottom_sheet(self):
        self.custom_sheet = MDCustomBottomSheet(screen=Factory.ContentCustomSheet())
        self.custom_sheet.open()


Example().run()
https://github.com/HeaTTheatR/KivyMD-data/raw/master/gallery/kivymddoc/custom-bottomsheet.png

Note

When you use the MDCustomBottomSheet class, you must specify the height of the user-defined content exactly, otherwise dp(100) heights will be used for your ContentCustomSheet class:

<ContentCustomSheet@BoxLayout>:
    orientation: "vertical"
    size_hint_y: None
    height: "400dp"

Note

The height of the bottom sheet dialog will never exceed half the height of the screen!
