Material UI is a Material Design library made for React.

It’s a set of React components that have Material Design styles.

In this article, we’ll look at how to customize dialog boxes with Material UI.

Customized Dialogs

We can create our own dialog components by putting into our own components and passing in various styles to it.

For example, we can write:

import React from "react";
import { withStyles } from "@material-ui/core/styles";
import Button from "@material-ui/core/Button";
import Dialog from "@material-ui/core/Dialog";
import MuiDialogTitle from "@material-ui/core/DialogTitle";
import MuiDialogContent from "@material-ui/core/DialogContent";
import MuiDialogActions from "@material-ui/core/DialogActions";
import IconButton from "@material-ui/core/IconButton";
import CloseIcon from "@material-ui/icons/Close";
import Typography from "@material-ui/core/Typography";
const styles = theme => ({
  root: {
    margin: 0,
    padding: theme.spacing(3)
  closeButton: {
    position: "absolute",
    right: theme.spacing(1),
    top: theme.spacing(2),
    color: theme.palette.grey[500]
const DialogTitle = withStyles(styles)(props => {
  const { children, classes, onClose, ...other } = props;
  return (
    <MuiDialogTitle disableTypography className={classes.root} {...other}>
      <Typography variant="h6">{children}</Typography>
      {onClose ? (
        <IconButton className={classes.closeButton} onClick={onClose}>
          <CloseIcon />
      ) : null}
const DialogContent = withStyles(theme => ({
  root: {
    padding: theme.spacing(2)
const DialogActions = withStyles(theme => ({
  root: {
    margin: 0,
    padding: theme.spacing(1)
export default function App() {
  const [open, setOpen] = React.useState(false);
  const handleClickOpen = () => {
  const handleClose = () => {
  return (
      <Button variant="outlined" color="primary" onClick={handleClickOpen}>
        Open dialog
      <Dialog onClose={handleClose} open={open}>
        <DialogTitle onClose={handleClose}>Modal</DialogTitle>
        <DialogContent dividers>
          <Typography gutterBottom>lorem ipsum.</Typography>
          <Button autoFocus onClick={handleClose} color="primary">

We create a styles function that we pass into the withStyles higher-order components with various styles.

We moved the close button by setting some styles for the closeButton class.

To create the DialogTitle component, we passed a component that uses the classes and children from the props.

The classes are applied to icon buttons and dialog titles.

Also, we created the DialogContent and DialogActions in similar ways.

We changed the padding slightly to create both components.

Then we used them all in the App component.
