  • Highly customizable via html and css
  • Multiple instances on one page
  • Translator/i18n friendly - No hardcoded English strings

Basic Usage:

1. Include the jQuery javascript library and jQuery mloverlay script on the web page

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.mloverlay.js"></script>

2. Create a container for the overlay

<div id="overlay">

display: none;
width: 400px;
padding: 5px;
