Modal Dialog

I am using Andy Smiths Dialog windows, which work really well.

My only problem is I am trying to make the Dialogs Modal.

Someone mentioned putting <base target="_self"> into the head section of
the modal window to make it work. I tried putting it both pages just to see
if it would work and it doesn't seem to work.

Does anyone know how to make these modal?

Thanks,

Tom

not quite modal because you can close the dialog without making a choice

That looks like exactly what I was looking for. I haven't tried it in my
..net pages yet, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. BTW, is there a way
to make the links actual buttons? If not, that's fine.

Thanks,

Tom

I am definately not going to quibble, here. This is exactly what I need.

Is there a way to tell if the window was closed using the "x" or is there a
way to turn the "x" off?

Also, is the line:

ModalDialogInterval = window.setInterval("ModalDialogMaintainFocus()",5) ;

the one that makes it modal. I assume this is just resetting focus every 5
ms. Is there some reason for using 5 verses 10, 20 or 30 etc?

Thanks,

Tom

I wanted to pass in the asp.net object where I want the result to go and
wanted to do something like:

function YesNoCancelReturnMethod(returnVar)
{
document.getElementById(returnVar).value = ModalDialog.value;
ModalDialogRemoveWatch();
}

but I can't figure out how the javascript call would go:

<a href="javascript:YesNoCancel('Yes, no, or cancel
me','YesNoCancelReturnMethod(modalreturn1)');">Sho w Modal #1</a>

This doesn't work (which I didn't expect it would). But I can't figure out
how to get the variable name to the event.

If you look at the demo, when you click one of the links it returns "Yes",
"No" etc into the textbox. When you click the x in the top-right corner, it
returns an empty string into the textbox.

it returns an empty string into the textbox.


So, I assume the best way to make it work would be to put something in the
textbox and then check if it is empty. If it is, the user pressed the "x"
to close the window.

I am having a problem with using this in an asp.net page using buttons.

I made a change where I pass the title and the name of the textbox to the
function, but otherwise it is the same. Here is the page I am using at the
moment:

************************************************** **************************
*
<%@ Page Language="VB" trace="false" debug="true" AutoEventWireup="true"
ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>
<!--#include virtual = '/Development/includes/ModalDialogs.inc'-->
<script runat="server">
sub page_load(s as object, e as eventArgs)
if not isPostBack then
Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "YesNoCancel('This is a
test','modalreturn2','Yes, no, or cancel me','YesNoCancelReturnMethod()');")
end if
end sub
</script>
<form runat="server">
<asp:Button ID="Button1" text="submit" runat="server"/><br>
<input type=text id=modalreturn2 name=modalreturn2 value=''><br>
<a href="javascript:YesNoCancel('This is the first
Title','modalreturn2','Yes, no, or cancel
me','YesNoCancelReturnMethod()');">Show Modal #1</a>
</form>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
</body>
</html>
************************************************** ************

In this page am calling the javascript popup from a link and a button. With
the link it works everytime I press the link. Once I use the button, it
doesn't work for the link anymore.

For the button, it opens the popup fine, but it never returns when I press
the link on the popup page. It only returns when I press the "x". It never
returns anything from the popup (not even the empty string when pressing the
"x").

At this point, neither the button nor the link will bring up the popup box.

What is the problem here?

Here is the page that is rendered from .aspx:

to close the window.


I guess so - or a JavaScript variable...
