The GlobalStatus is a complex component meant for displaying global Application notifications or a summary of a form ( displaying form errors, messages etc. ). By default, the GlobalStatus is automatically connected together with the FormStatus component. This means, that every form component showing a status, will send the status message along to the GlobalStatus.

FormStatus default behavior

  • Once a FormStatus is show, the main GlobalStatus will show up.
  • The page will scroll (if needed) to the dedicated GlobalStatus.
  • But the focus will stay on the current place.
  • Screen reader uses will automatically hear the whole content of the GlobalStatus once it shows up.

Several Global statuses

Normally, You only want to have one GlobalStatus inside Your application. But You can have several in parallel. But make sure You give every other a new ID:

<GlobalStatus id="other-global-status" />

Where to put it

  • The GlobalStatus component should be positioned right under the header. By default, it uses main as the ID.
  • Or as a secondary summary of errors in a submit form. Keep in mind, by default, form components like Input are using the ID main. To make sure the build in FormStatus is sending along the message to another GlobalStatus, You have to set the global_status_id, like:
<Input global_status_id="other-global-status" ... />

But You can also make use of the FormSet or FormRow (or FormSet) which will send along the global_status_id the underlaying/children components, like:

<FormSet global_status_id="other-global-status">...</FormSet>

Smooth scrolling

Not every browser (e.g. Safari, Edge and IE) supports smooth scrolling. Therefore, add the smoothscroll-polyfill to your project:

import smoothscroll from 'smoothscroll-polyfill'
// kick off the polyfill!

Manually updates

Beside the automated connection between the error states of form components (FormStatus), You can update messages from everywhere in Your application on any time:

NB: The GlobalStatus will autoclose by default, once all messages are removed.

JavaScript (interceptor situation)

import { GlobalStatus } from 'dnb-ui-lib/components'
// 1. Update / extend the the status like so:
const statusOne = GlobalStatus.AddStatus({
status_id: 'custom-id-1',
text: 'New Text',
item: 'Item from status #1'
// 2. and removes "custom-id-1" again if needed


import { GlobalStatus } from 'dnb-ui-lib/components'
// 1. Place it under the header bar
<GlobalStatus text="Optional default text" />
// 2. later on, You can show a message
title="New title"
text="First long info text ..."
item="Item from status #1"
// 3. and remove it again
<GlobalStatus.Remove status_id="custom-id-1" />

If You need an additional GlobalStatus, define a custom ID (custom-status):

import { GlobalStatus } from 'dnb-ui-lib/components'
// 1. Place it somewhere in Your application
<GlobalStatus id="custom-status" />
// 2. later on, You can show a message
title="New title"
text="First long info text ..."
item="Item from status #1"
// 3. and remove it again
<GlobalStatus.Remove id="custom-status" status_id="custom-id-1" />
