The dialog.jQuery.js jQuery plugin adds customizable, animated, and AJAX-enabled dialog boxes and modal windows to the web page. Dialog is a feature that displays a box "floating" above everything else on the page, with a dark semi-transparent "modal" background, to draw focus to the dialog box in the center. The style and settings can be modified via the jQuery plugin parameters.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and the dialog.jQuery.js script on the web page.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js" 
<script src="dialog.jquery.js"></script>

2. Wrap the dialog/modal content into a container with a unique ID.

<div id="myID" style="display: none;">
  This is some text from a local div element on the page.

3. Create a trigger element with the following attributes to toggle the dialog/modal.

<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="trigger" 
   data-dialog-title="Dialog Title" 

4. Initialize the plugin and we're done.


5. To load an external page into the dialog/modal via AJAX requests:

<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="trigger"
   data-dialog-title="Ajax Dialog Title" 
   Open ajax dialog box

6. Default options to customize the dialog/modal.


  // Whether or not to use animation when showing/hiding the dialog box
  useAnimation     : true,

  // Type of animation to use if userAnimation is enabled (accepts: slide, fade)
  animationType     : "slide",

  // Duration of the animation (in milliseconds)

  // Whether or not a modal backdrop should be used when the dialog box is visible

  // Whether or not to style the dialog box with jQuery or to have the user style it with CSS

  // Distance the dialog box will end at (if animating)/where the dialog box will be positioned on the Y axis (in pixels)
  distanceFromTop   : 100,

  // Whether or not the user can close the dialog box by pressing the escape key
  closeWithEsc      : true,

  // Whether or not the user can close the dialog box by clicking/tapping the modal backdrop
  closeWithModal    : true,

  // Class for the modal, used to style the modal with CSS
  modalClass        : "jQueryDialogModal",
