In trying to assist a fellow community member with some questions, I came across an odd behavior with the Ant Modal component. I had configured a modal containing a component with a Side Effect with actions on (component) load/unload. The odd behavior was that the actions did not trigger consistently or as I was expecting (when the modal was opening or closing).
After inspecting the modal state values, I noticed the modal open value wasn’t being set - it was either Nothing or false, and only when the modal was closed was its open value actually being set (to false).
To investigate, I added a dialog component to see if it behaves similarly and it didn’t. The dialog component was working as expected.
I setup a test project to demonstrate this: https://antmodaltest.plasmic.run/
Maybe the Plasmic team can help shed some light on this. The project ID is
