Introducing Modal Frames

Hey everyone! We're excited to announce a follow up on Drawers that's going to add even more flexibility to your Retool applications – Modal Frames!

Modal Frames can be added and toggled in your app just like Drawers, giving you more control over your app's user experience. Yes, this means no more buttons, unless you want one :grinning:

With the power to control visibility, you can now precisely manage when your modals are shown. This opens up a whole world of possibilities, including the ability to create and manage blocking modals – perfect for those use cases where you need to grab your user's attention or prompt them for important actions.

To start creating Modal Frames, head over to the component tree and click the '+' button next to Frames.
