Handling Dismissals

When an alert is dismissed by the user, the Promise returned by swal() will be resolved with an object { dismiss: reason } documenting the reason it was dismissed:

Reason Description Related configuration
swal.DismissReason.backdrop The user clicked the backdrop. allowOutsideClick
swal.DismissReason.cancel The user clicked the cancel button. showCancelButton
swal.DismissReason.close The user clicked the close button. showCloseButton
swal.DismissReason.esc The user clicked the Esc key. allowEscapeKey
swal.DismissReason.timer The timer ran out, and the alert closed automatically. timer

const {value: name} = await swal({
  title: 'What is your name?',

  inputPlaceholder: 'Enter your name or nickname',
  showCancelButton: true,
  inputValidator: (value) => {
    return !value && 'You need to write something!'

if (name) {
  swal({type: 'success', title: 'Hi, ' + name})
const {value: email} = await swal({
  title: 'Input email address',
  input: 'email',
  inputPlaceholder: 'Enter your email address'

if (email) {
  swal('Entered email: ' + email)
const {value: url} = await swal({
  input: 'url',
  inputPlaceholder: 'Enter the URL'

if (url) {
  swal('Entered URL: ' + url)
const {value: password} = await swal({
  title: 'Enter your password',
  input: 'password',
  inputPlaceholder: 'Enter your password',
  inputAttributes: {
    'maxlength': 10,
    'autocapitalize': 'off',

if (password) {
  swal('Entered password: ' + password)
const {value: text} = await swal({
  input: 'textarea',

  showCancelButton: true

if (text) {
const {value: country} = await swal({
  title: 'Select Ukraine',
  input: 'select',
  inputOptions: {
    'SRB': 'Serbia',
    'UKR': 'Ukraine',
    'HRV': 'Croatia'
  inputPlaceholder: 'Select country',
  showCancelButton: true,
  inputValidator: (value) => {
    return new Promise((resolve) => {
      if (value === 'UKR') {
      } else {
        resolve('You need to select Ukraine :)')

if (country) {
  swal('You selected: ' + country)
// inputOptions can be an object or Promise
var inputOptions = new Promise((resolve) => {
  setTimeout(() => {
      '#ff0000': 'Red',
      '#00ff00': 'Green',
      '#0000ff': 'Blue'
  }, 2000)

const {value: color} = await swal({
  title: 'Select color',
  input: 'radio',
  inputOptions: inputOptions,
  inputValidator: (value) => {
    return !value && 'You need to choose something!'

if (color) {
  swal({html: 'You selected: ' + result})
const {value: accept} = await swal({
  title: 'Terms and conditions',
  input: 'checkbox',
  inputValue: 1,
    'I agree with the terms and conditions',

Multiple inputs aren't supported, you can achieve them by using html and preConfirm parameters.
Inside the preConfirm() function you can return (or, if async, resolve with) the custom result:

const {value: formValues} = await swal({
  title: 'Multiple inputs',
    '<input id="swal-input1" class="swal2-input">' +
    '<input id="swal-input2" class="swal2-input">',
  focusConfirm: false,
  preConfirm: () => {
    return [

if (formValues) {
