modal background blur - cross browser

hello,

when it comes to dhtml-based modals (as opposed to actual modal dialog-
windows or popups), an effect seen all over the web is to render the
background content a translucent shade of dark gray. but something i
have only seen in one place is -- blurring the background. that is,
the content area "behind" the modal is not only gray, but uniformly
blurred. like this:

....i use this webapp & it works in IE and Firefox. but im not sure
how. below is the .css doc for this app. can anybody tell how its
done?

would be happy to provide more info if i can; i use the time writing
web app in the screenshot, but i do not have ownership or admin access
to it.
thanks!

In the javascript calendar.js he has used window.open() function to pop up the window. i just want to know whether we have any...

Hi, I'm opening an ASP.NET page using the JavaScript window.showModalDialog method. This page has a submission button on it which, when clicked, opens a new window, which is pretty much as expected. However, I want it to keep the submission within the modal dialog. Looking round the net, it seems that this is not an uncommon problem and that people are using an iframe to solve it. Fair enough - that's not difficult. However, I'm...

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?

Hi! I'm working on a web application in Asp.net and what I would like to have is a cross borwser modal dialog which accepts user's input. I would like to catch what the user clicked on the dialog. To be more specific I want to have a confirmation dialog that is shown when a user clicks on a Delete button (which deletes some values from database). If Yes is pressed the delete action is processed otherwise modal dialog is closed.

Hi All, I would think this would be a fairly common thing, but I'm having a bit of trouble finding what I want on google/etc... In an ASP.NET 2.0, C# webform, I would like to have a textbox and button. In the textbox, you would type a couple of characters (i.e. "Amer"), then click the button (labeled "Browse..."). It would open a modal browser dialog, show a radio-buttoned list of

Hi all... I am bulding an application and wish to use custom Modal dialog windows.

This way such suggestions up to...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
