Examples:

Default options:

This is the default dialog which is useful for displaying information. The dialog window can be moved, resized and closed with the 'x' icon.


<div id="dialog" title="Basic dialog">
	<p>This is the default dialog which is useful for displaying information. The dialog window can be moved, resized and closed with the 'x' icon.</p>
</div>
<button id="opener">Open Dialog</button>

<?=$ajax->dialog('dialog',array('autoOpen' => false))?>
<script type="text/javascript">
	$(function() {	
		$('#opener').click(function() {
			$('#dialog').dialog('open');
			return false;
		});
	});
</script>
            

Animated dialog:

This is an animated dialog which is useful for displaying information. The dialog window can be moved, resized and closed with the 'x' icon.


<div id="dialog2" title="Animated dialog">
	<p>This is an animated dialog which is useful for displaying information. The dialog window can be moved, resized and closed with the 'x' icon.</p>
</div>
<button id="opener2">Open Dialog</button>

<?=$ajax->dialog('dialog2',array(
    'autoOpen' => false, 
    'show' => 'blind', 
    'hide' => 'explode'
))?>
<script type="text/javascript">
    // increase the default animation speed to exaggerate the effect
    $.fx.speeds._default = 1000;
	$(function() {	
		$('#opener2').click(function() {
			$('#dialog2').dialog('open');
			return false;
		});
	});
</script>
            

Modal dialog:

Adding the modal overlay screen makes the dialog look more prominent because it dims out the page content.


<div id="dialogmodal" title="Basic modal dialog">
	<p>Adding the modal overlay screen makes the dialog look more prominent because it dims out the page content.</p>
</div>

<button id="opener3">Open Dialog</button>

<?=$ajax->dialog('dialogmodal',array(
    'modal' => true, 
    'height' => 140, 
    'autoOpen' => false
))?>
<script type="text/javascript">
	$(function() {	
		$('#opener3').click(function() {
			$('#dialogmodal').dialog('open');
			return false;
		});
	});
</script>

    A question..

    Why don't pass like a second parameter the openers'id and create the script in the same $ajax->dialog function?



    Thanks

  2. kvas wrote:

    Hi again gabrielr!

    I didn't pass second parameter because jQuey UI dialog is fired when the page is loaded, so there is no need for openers id.

    I used openers here because I have many examples and 3 dialogs (one over second) is not good example at all.

    get the dialog name dynamically doesn't work.

    <?=$ajax->dialog($dynamicDialog,array('autoOpen' => false))?>

    why is this? thanks

    hi,
    is there a way for your helper to load an external view? for example, in the main page I want to setup a modal dialog to manage the users.

    thanks in advance,

    hi Dennis,
    At this moment there is no way to use it to load ajax content.

    hi kvas,

    thank you for your answer. I was trying to access the view I wanted to load using $this->requestAction('users/index'); and insert it into the div to be displayed but the dialog shows with no content. I am kind of new to cakephp and nobody seems to help on this matter. can you point me in the wright direction?

    thank you in advance,
    denis

  8. kvas wrote:

    Hi Denis,

    I think that after inserting content you must refire js dialog method.
    I think that in your case code will be easlier using jQuery without my helper :)

  9. Denis wrote:

    hi kvas,

    the code is working, the problem was that I did check if the request is an ajax request. I added the line $this->render('index'); to the user's index action in the controller and it worked. one small problem was that in the dialog the view was not displayed using the corresponding CSS. do you have any ideas why?

    thank you,
    denis

    Hi David,
    maybe you should add css files in your layout.ctp file?

  11. Denis wrote:

    Sorry I added the message twice.
    the CSS file is added correctly, the other element in the page are showing correctly, even the table from the view displayed in the dialog takes the correct CSS only the text does not. For the text I have set the CSS in the body tag. Could that be the problem??

    thank you,
    denis

    Hi Denis!
    Maybe your styles are overriten by default dialog css files? Try to check it with firebug...

    How we could add any buttons? When I add this:

    'buttons' => array('Ok' => 'function() { $(this).dialog("close"); }'),

    The method generate this js code:
    {"Cancel":"function() { $(this).dialog(\"close\"); }"}

    And dont work, this sould be:

    {"Cancel":function() { $(this).dialog(\"close\"); }}

Familiarity breeds contempt. http://www.us-coachoutlet.us.com Coach USA Store When it comes to handbags, "contempt" is probably too strong a word, but there comes a point in time where you're ready for a brand to acknowledge it's done all with a certain style that it can. The Marcie feels like it's ready to cycle out to me, especially when you consider the slightly different aesthetic direction of the brand's more recent offerings. http://www.chiflatironwebsite.us.com CHI Flat Iron Like a beloved football player for one of my favorite teams, I hope the http://www.coachoutletonline.us.com Coach Outlet Online Store 2016 Marcie will go out while it's still on top.http://www.clshoesoutletonline.com

    Even http://www.outletonlineclearance.com Coach Outlet Online Store though we are, of course, big http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-stores.us.com proponents of buying a brand new bag, sometimes you don't need a brand new bag. Maybe the budget doesn't allow for one, maybe you just got a http://www.coach-factoryoutletstores.us.com great deal at the http://www.coachoutlets.us recent seasonal sales and you're set for a http://www.coachoutletonlinesale.us.com while, maybe http://www.coach-factoryoutletstore.us.com you just don't have the itch right now--whatever the reason, it http://www.coachoutletstoreonlines.us.com happens to all of us http://www.coachoutletstorefactory.us.com sometimes. If this sounds http://www.valentinoshoes.us.com familiar to you but you'd still like to update your daily accessories for fall, http://www.valentinooutlet.org maybe we suggest a http://www.raybanoutletsonline.us.com bag charm?http://www.redbottomshoe.us.com

    Bag http://www.valentinorockstud.us.com charms are sometimes polarizing among our readers, primarily because http://www.raybansunglassoutlet.us.com some of them are extremely expensive, despite being non-functional. That doesn't have to be the case, though--we had no problem finding nearly two dozen cute, playful options, and many of them have two-digit http://www.oakleyonlineoutlet.us.com price tags. That's the great thing http://www.raybansunglassescheap.us.org about a bag charm: they don't have to http://www.rayban-outlet.us.com be serious or expensive, but they can be both or neither, depending on your opinion and personal budget.http://www.tomsoutlet.us.com

    In general, even at http://www.raybansunglassesstore.us.com the http://www.oakleyonlinestore.us.com high end, these charms http://www.ray-bansunglasses.org are much less of a commitment than a designer bag--if you use it for a season to http://www.raybanoutletsunglass.us.com make an old favorite feel new, you won't have to feel http://www.bananelouisvuitton.com wasteful if you tuck it back in your closet in a few months in favor of the next thing http://www.valentinoshoesoutlet.us.com that catches your fancy. When http://www.raybaneyeglasses.us.com that bag starts to http://www.oakleyoutlet.name feel normal, http://www.louisvuittonlv.us.com though, your charm will be right http://www.factorystoreonline.com where you left it to provide a little extra accent.http://www.sacnoirpascher.com

    Last week celebs http://www.oakleyoutletsonline.us.com partied down with http://www.ray-bansunglasses.it politics, http://www.christianlouboutinoutletonline.us.com and Gigi Hadid managed to http://www.outlet-michaelkors.us.com stay one http://www.abercrombieoutletonline.us.com step ahead of us http://www.ralphlauren-outlet.us.com with her handbag choices. http://www.sacpascherhermes.com Also, Margot Robbie has finally begun her super stylish press tour for Suicide Squad, and we expect our photo service to be pretty generous with her http://www.oakleysunglassesstore.us.com pictures for http://www.oakleysunglassoutlet.us.com the foreseeable http://www.oakleysunglassesonsale.us.com future.

    Greetings friends and bag lovers! http://www.michaelkorsoutletsale.us.com Unbelievably, this is our last visit in July, and we hope your summer is going well. Our http://www.oakleysunglassesoutletstore.us.com members have been shopping up a storm, and we are happy once again to bring you some of the best bags and http://www.cheapoakleysunglasses.com.co conversations from the PurseForum. This week, http://www.michaelkors.us.com some nice bags from Givenchy caught our eye, and we also looked http://www.michaelkors-outletonline.us.org inside some Chanel bags and caught up with Louis Vuitton’s newest Speedy. All this and more, just for you.

    The Givenchy http://www.truereligionjeans.us.org Antigona is http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlines.us.com still one of the most popular bags in the http://www.truereligionoutletco.us.com world, and http://www.michaelkorsoutletco.us.com emiliagunawan is so impressed with her two-year old Antigona that she http://www.polosralphlauren.us.com posted a reveal, just to share the love and let our members know what a durable bag this is. We really appreciate these reviews and updates–our forum is about sharing information. Lapetite7 picked up a new bag this week: a mini Pandora Box in classic black. Also, miacostigan showed off her first Givenchy, which was a http://www.valentinoshoesoutlet.com decision made with help from her PurseForum http://www.raybanssunglasses.us.com friends.

    Somehow it's going to be http://www.michael-korsoutletonline.com August by the time we see you again on Monday, which seems impossible until http://www.tomsshoe.us.com you remember that summer always flies by as New Yorkers hurtle straight back to http://www.michaelkorsoutletsonline.us.com the inevitable winter that it feels like just ended. In the meantime, before we http://www.michaelkorsonlineoutlets.us.com progress on to the last month of summer, it's time to look back http://www.onlinemichaelkorsoutlet.us.com and see what we learned and http://www.michaelkorssoutlet.us.com enjoyed in July.

    Below, check out http://www.modeldesac.com the http://www.michaelkors-outlet-online.com five most popular posts we published this http://www.michael-kors.us.com month--your fellow readers have some very http://www.valentinorockstudshoes.us.com good taste, and we http://www.michaelkorsonline.us.com know you're not doing much at work on a summer Friday afternoon anyway.http://www.valentinoshoes.us.org

    Last http://www.valentinooutlet.us.org year http://www.pradaoutletstore.us.com for National Handbag Day, I went about reading my handbag tea leaves to figure out what http://www.true-religions.us.com your handbag choices say about you. This year, in http://www.tomsoutlet.in.net celebration of the holiday's second coming on Friday, I've returned with a new set of highly covetable bags to do the same. http://www.christian-louboutinshoes.us.com Check out the results below.

    What we’ve set out to do is http://www.tomsshoesoutletonline.in.net create an http://www.pascherportefeuille.com Birkin price list for three http://www.truereligionoutletonline.in.net of the most common leathers–Clemence, http://www.valentinoshoeswebsite.com Togo and Epsom–in the four sizes that are commonly used as women’s handbags. Right now, we’re focusing on the US, eurozone Europe, http://www.louboutinshoes.us.com the United Kingdom and Japan, http://www.christianlouboutinsale.us.com which are the http://www.hermesbag.us.com four global markets for which http://www.north-faceoutlet.us.com pricing information is http://www.beatsbydrdreheadphone.us.com most available. Below, check out our findings, pulled from both http://www.marcjacobsoutlet.us.org our PurseForum and price http://www.truereligionoutlet.us.com lists across the web.

    The information is http://www.sacportefeuillespascher.com incomplete, but we’ll be filling it in as much as possible as we find more information. If you http://www.portefeuillepascher.com know any current prices that aren’t represented below,http://www.portefeuillespascher.com please let us know in the http://www.sacblanc.com http://www.valentinoshoes.com.co comments!
