Consent Banner


Consent banner is the library which will generate a banner at the specified position for asking the cookie preferences.

It contains two buttons, accept all and more info. If the user clicks more info button, A dialog will pop up so that the user can set the cookie categories that he/she wants to share with us.

Building and running on localhost

First install dependencies:

npm i

To create a production build:

npm run build-prod

To create a development build:

npm run build


npm run start


npm run test

Example use

This is part of your html page.

    <div id="app"></div>

If you want to insert a banner into the <div id="app"></div>, you can use the following example.

let cookieCategories: ICookieCategory[] = 
        id: "c0",
        name: "1. Essential cookies",
        descHtml: "We use this cookie, read more <a href='link'>here</a>.",
        isUnswitchable: true
        id: "c1",
        name: "2. Performance & analytics",
        descHtml: "We use this cookie, read more <a href='link'>here</a>."
        id: "c2",
        name: "3. Advertising/Marketing",
        descHtml: "Blah"
        id: "c3",
        name: "4. Targeting/personalization",
        descHtml: "Blah"

let textResources: ITextResources = {
    bannerMessageHtml: "We use optional cookies to provide... read <a href='link'>here</a>.",
    acceptAllLabel: "Accept all",
    moreInfoLabel: "More info",
    preferencesDialogCloseLabel: "Close",
    preferencesDialogTitle: "Manage cookie preferences",
    preferencesDialogDescHtml: "Most Microsoft sites...",
    acceptLabel: "Accept",
    rejectLabel: "Reject",
    saveLabel: "Save changes",
    resetLabel: "Reset all"

let callBack = function(obj: any) { console.log(obj); };

// If you want to set 'nonce: test1' in style tag, add "stylesNonce: 'test1'"
let options: IOptions = { 
    textResources: textResources, 
    initialTheme: "dark", 
    stylesNonce: "test1" 

let cc = new ConsentControl("app", "en", callBack, cookieCategories, options);
let cookieCategoriePreferences: ICookieCategoriesPreferences = { 
    "c1": undefined, 
    "c2": false, 
    "c3": true

// Show a banner with dark theme

let theme: ITheme = {
    "close-button-color": "#000080",
    "secondary-button-disabled-opacity": "1",
    "secondary-button-hover-shadow": "none",
    "primary-button-disabled-opacity": "0.65",
    "primary-button-hover-border": "none",
    "primary-button-disabled-border": "1px double #3CB371",
    "primary-button-hover-shadow": "2px 5px 7px #A12A29",
    "banner-background-color": "#BA5583",
    "dialog-background-color": "#32CD32",
    "primary-button-color": "#4B30AE",
    "text-color": "#800000",
    "secondary-button-color": "#00FA9A",
    "secondary-button-disabled-color": "#7B68EE",
    "secondary-button-border": "1px dashed #969696",

// Create a new theme, named "medium"
cc.createTheme("medium", theme);

// Apply the "medium" theme

Developer Guide

ConsentControl consists of 2 main elements: Banner and Preferences Dialog. Use containerElementOrId, culture, onPreferencesChanged, cookieCategories, options to create an instance. culture will be used to determine the direction of the banner and preferences dialog.

var cc = new ConsentControl(
    // here the banner will be inserted, can be HTMLElement or element id
    containerElementOrId: string | HTMLElement,

    // culture can be just language "en" or language-country "en-us". 
    // Based on language RTL should be applied (
    culture: string,

    // callback function, called on preferences changes (via "Accept All" or "Save changes"), 
    // must pass cookieCategoriePreferences, see ICookieCategoriesPreferences in Data types
    onPreferencesChanged: (cookieCategoriesPreferences: ICookieCategoriesPreferences) => void,

    // optional, see ICookieCategory in Data types
    cookieCategories?: ICookieCategory[],

    // optional, see IOptions in Data types
    options?: IOptions
  • setTextResources(textResources: ITextResources) can be used to set the texts.

  • createTheme(name: string, theme: ITheme) can be used to create the new theme. name is the name of this new theme, which can be used by applyTheme(themeName: string). theme is the new theme object.

    ConsentControl consists of three built in themes, light, dark, and high-contrast. dark and high-contrast themes are from Microsoft Docs.

  • You can apply the theme manually by using applyTheme(themeName: string). themeName is the name of the theme which you want to apply.

    If you want to apply a new theme, you need to call createTheme(name: string, theme: ITheme) first, and then call applyTheme(themeName: string)

    let theme: ITheme = {
        "close-button-color": "#000080",
        "secondary-button-disabled-opacity": "1",
        "secondary-button-hover-shadow": "none",
        "primary-button-disabled-opacity": "0.65",
        "primary-button-hover-border": "none",
        "primary-button-disabled-border": "1px double #3CB371",
        "primary-button-hover-shadow": "2px 5px 7px #A12A29",
        "banner-background-color": "#BA5583",
        "dialog-background-color": "#32CD32",
        "primary-button-color": "#4B30AE",
        "text-color": "#800000",
        "secondary-button-color": "#00FA9A",
        "secondary-button-disabled-color": "#7B68EE",
        "secondary-button-border": "1px dashed #969696",
    // Create a new theme, named "medium"
    cc.createTheme("medium", theme);
    // Apply the "medium" theme

    If the name of theme is not in the themes collections, it will throw an error. new Error("Theme not found error")

  • setContainerElement(containerElementOrId: string | HTMLElement) can be used to set the container element for the banner and preferences dialog.

    If you pass HTMLElement, it will be used as the container. If you pass string, the method will use it as the id to find the container element.



    let container = document.getElementById('app');

    If the container can not be found, it will throw an error. new Error("Container not found error")

  • getContainerElement() will return the current container element.

  • You can set the direction manually by using setDirection(dir?: string). dir can be "ltr" or "rtl". If dir is not passed, it will determine the direction by dir attribute in html, body or culture.

    // There are 3 cases. dir="rtl", dir="ltr", empty
    // Set direction to rtl (right-to-left)
    // Set direction to ltr (left-to-right)
    // It will use "dir" attribute in "html" or "body"
    // If the "dir" attribute is not specified, it will apply the direction based on "culture"
  • getDirection() will return the current direction.

Data types

There are six data types: ICookieCategory, ITextResources, ICookieCategoriesPreferences, IOptions, IThemes, and ITheme.

  • ICookieCategory is used to create cookie categories that will be showed in the preferences dialog.

  • ITextResources is the texts that will be used in the banner and preferences dialog.

  • ICookieCategoriesPreferences is used to store the preferences in each cookie categories.

  • IOptions is the options for the banner. It contains four parts, textResources, themes, initialTheme, and stylesNonce.

    • textResources is the initial text resources for texts.

    • themes is a collections of themes that can be applied to the banner and preferences dialog.

    • initialTheme is the initial theme that you want to applied before you call applyTheme(themeName: string).

    • stylesNonce is the nonce attribute for <style> tag.

      The nonce attribute enables you to whitelist certain inline script and style elements, while avoiding use of the Content Security Policy (CSP) unsafe-inline directive (which would allow all inline script/style), so that you still retain the key CSP feature of disallowing inline script/style in general. Also see CSP: style-src for more information. If stylesNonce is undefined, the nonce attribute will not be added to <style> tag.

  • IThemes is a collections of themes. The properties names are the names of each themes, and the values are the theme objects.

  • ITheme is the theme object. It contains required properties and optional properties. Optional properties can be calculated by a built in method with required ones.

// All categories should be replaced with the passed ones in the control
interface ICookieCategory {
    id: string;
    name: string;
    descHtml: string;

    // optional, prevents toggling the category. 
    // True only for categories like Essential cookies.
    isUnswitchable?: boolean;

// Only one banner will be created. 
// If call it many times, it will only display the last one and remove all previous banners.
    cookieCategoriesPreferences: ICookieCategoriesPreferences

// Hides the banner and the Preferences Dialog. 
// Removes all HTML elements of the Consent Control from the DOM

// Shows Preferences Dialog. Leaves banner state unchanged. 
// It is used to insert HTML code for the preferences dialog.

Custom settings

  1. Change the width of buttons in banner: Change $bannerBtnWidth in styles.scss

  2. file is for development purpose, and is for production. webpack.common.js is the common parts in both and Both and require webpack.common.js. There are two differences between and localIdentName in use/options/modules under module/rules only uses hash in production mode. Only development mode contains devServer. The headers in devServer can be used to set CSP. The default nonce is test1.
