Prompt View Plugin

The prompt view plugin allows you to show a popup that asks the user for text input. The popup will block input to the rest of the screen and there is a Cancel and customizable Submit button, both of which close the popup. The Submit button can only be pressed if some text has been entered, otherwise the button is disabled.

const promptView = await PromptViewPlugin.init()
promptView.setPrompt('Please enter some text')
promptView.setPlaceholder('This is the placeholder text')
const result = await

if (!result.cancelled) {

result.text will be undefined if the user cancel's the prompt, so it is important to check result.cancelled before performing any actions with the entered text.
