About the buttons option:

If buttons is not specified, BootPopup will automatically select the buttons based on the defined callbacks. If some of the callbacks close, ok, cancel, yes, no are defined, the respective buttons are selected.

For example, if you define ok and cancel callbacks, the option buttons is automatically configured to ["ok", "cancel"].

About the content option:

The biggest flexibility of BootPopup is the content option. The content is wrapped by a form and has the bootstrap class .form-horizontal allowing to create complex forms very quickly. When you are submitting data via a dialog box, BootPopup will grab all that data and deliver to you through the callbacks.

  1. content is an array of objects and each object is represented as an entry of the form. For example, if you have the following object:

    { p: {class: "bold", text: "Insert data:"}}

    This will add a <p></p> tag to the form. The options of p ({class: "bold", text: "Insert data:"}) are HTML attributes passed to the HTML tag. There is a special attribute for text which is defined as the inner text of the HTML tag. So, this example is equivalent to the following HTML:

    <p class="bold">Insert data:</p>
  2. But it is when it comes to adding inputs that things become easy. Look at this example:

    { input: {type: "text", label: "Title", name: "title", placeholder: "Description" }}

    This will create an input element with the attributes type: "text", label: "Title", name: "title", placeholder: "Description". Note there is also a special attribute label. This attribute is used by BootPopup to create a label for the input form entry. The above example is equivalent to the following HTML:

    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="title" class="col-sm-2 control-label">Title</label>
      <div class="col-sm-10">
        <input label="Title" name="title" id="bootpopup-form-input" placeholder="Description" class="form-control" type="text">
      </div>
    </div>
  3. In order to make it even simpler, there are shortcuts for most common input types (button, text, submit, color, url, password, hidden, file, number, email, reset, date, select, radio). The previous example can be simply written as:

    { text: {label: "Title", name: "title", placeholder: "Description" }}

    NOTE: select and radio have a special attribute named options. You can specify a list of options to be shown (the key is used as value by the input and the value is the text displayed):

    { select: { label: "Select", name: "select", options: { a:"A", b:"B", c:"C" }}}

    select with attribute multiple is also supported.

  4. Another useful feature is the ability to support functions directly as an attribute. Take the following button example:

    { button: {name: "button", value: "Open image", class: "btn btn-info", onclick: function(obj) {
        console.log(obj);
        bootpopup.alert("Hi there");
    }}}

    This will create a onclick event for the button. The reference for the object is passed as argument to the function.

  5. You can also insert HTML strings directly. Instead of writing an JS object, write the HTML:

    '<p class="lead">Popup dialog boxes for Bootstrap.</p>'

    });

Migration from previous version to v1

  • The value passed in the argument to the prompt callback is now the actual value
  • The parameters passed to the callback of bootpopup are now:
    1. data - a list of key-value pairs of the form, where key is the name of the input
    2. array - an array of name-value pairs obtained from the jQuery function $(form).serializeArray()
    3. event - event of pressing the button
