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:

    MDTopAppBar:
        title: "Example BottomSheet"
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 4

    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:

    MDTopAppBar:
        title: 'Example BottomSheet'
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 4

    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"

    MDTopAppBar:
        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:

    MDTopAppBar:
        title: 'Example BottomSheet'
        pos_hint: {"top": 1}
        elevation: 4

    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!
