Last Chance


This component is a modal window that returns search results when a user wants to initiate a contact. As the name indicates, it is the last try to get a match before a ticket is created.

It appears in the form of a modal. This component automatically creates a new store for itself.


This is how you create this component:

sdk.component('last-chance', target: HTMLElement|String, options: Object);


By default, this component looks like this:


The following options can be set in this component:

Name Type Default Description
forceFilters Array [] Filters to be sent in every request, along with the selected facet refinements. The format in explained in the /federated-search (filters option) in the Search API docs.
searchParams Object { matchHighlightTags: ['<strong class="inbenta-match">', '</strong>'], correctionHighlightTags: ['<em class="inbenta-correction">', '</em>'], expansionHighlightTags: ['<em class="inbenta-expansion">', '</em>'] } The API parameters to send in every request. For the format to use, see the /federated-search endpoint of Search API Routes.
Note: API parameters facets and attributes cannot be modified this way. See here for additional details.
searchParams note

You can use the component option searchParams to modify the API search queries. Nonetheless, some of the API attributes can be also handled by other linked components. This means that even if you set some searchParams, they may not applied if you are using certain components.

These are the components that may affect this option:

Component Affected API attributes
Results offset, length
Refinement tabs attribute, sort
Refinement list attribute, sort
Results per page offset, length
Router filters, query, offset
Semantic autocomplete query, offset, length
Sort by selector sort


The following methods can be used in this component:

Method Description
show(query: String = null) Shows the last chance modal, and it can do a new search in case the user provides the query string parameter
hide() Hides the last chance modal
linkToInput(element: HTMLInputElement|HTMLSelectElement|HTMLTextAreaElement) Adds selected element to the elements list where the component is going to get the query from. It only accepts HTML input, select and textarea elements
unlinkFromInput(element: HTMLInputElement|HTMLSelectElement|HTMLTextAreaElement) Stop listening to the element's input events to trigger queries.
unlinkAll() Stop listening to the all input events to trigger queries.


This component calls the API to do the following:

  • every time a submission is performed, it sends a /federated-searches request with the type parameter set to contact to get the result of the question and track the search as a contact_search event.
  • in addition, it sends a contact_start and contact_submit events using the /tracking/events endpoint.
  • it triggers the click event when a user clicks (left or right-click) on a content. This is logged in session logs with a CONTACT_CLICK data key.
  • it emits a submit event to the DOM so that you can register the contact_ticket event in the API when the user creates the issue.


Name Description
submit Fired when the user clicks the submit button
cancel Fired when the user clicks the cancel button


This component uses the following labels:

Name Default Description
LAST_CHANCE_HEADER_TEXT Maybe this interests you... The heading text
LAST_CHANCE_CANCEL_BUTTON Cancel The text for the cancel button
LAST_CHANCE_SUBMIT_BUTTON Submit The text for the submit button
