Hello @nenad.vlajic,

Thank you for contacting WebViewer support.

This can be done by overriding the onClick function of the delete button. Here is an example code snippet:

  instance.UI.updateElement('annotationDeleteButton', {
    onClick: () => {
        title: 'WARNING! About to delete annotation',
        message: 'Would you like to proceed?',
        confirmBtnText: 'Okay!',
        onConfirm: () => {
          console.log('The user clicked the confirm button');
          return Promise.resolve();
        onCancel: () => {
          console.log('The user clicked the cancel button');
          return Promise.resolve();

This would show the following modal once the user tries to click on the delete button in the annotation popup:

Here are the relevant APIs used:

Hope this helps!

Hi @jromanocarlsen,

I tried to use your example on notePopupDelete element, but for some reason id does not work. The code is same, I have just replaced ā€˜annotationDeleteButtonā€™ with ā€˜notePopupDeleteā€™, but warning message is not shown.

Thank you,

Hi @jromanocarlsen,

Yes, this is what I needed.
I did not find example for updateElement function inside the guides, but now I see it is there in the section about popups (

We have our own UI for showing messages, so I will not use showWarningMessage function.

Thank you very much!
