Apply use:focusTrapand then set the action value to either true or false to enable or disable focus.

Focus Order

Set the default focus value using data-focusindex attribute. Elements with this data attribute and the lowest value will be focused first. Additional values can be supplied in the case of conditional rendering. Note that this can be used for Skeleton Drawer and Modal content, which implement the focus trap by default.


When enabled this action will auto-select the first focusable element or the specified target. Press Tab or Shift + Tab to cycle through focusable elements within the target region. When the last item is focused, it will loop to the start, and vice versa.

Focusing Overlays

Skeleton automatically enables this action for overlays such as modals and drawers to aid accessibility.
