This is a dialog module for the jQuery Dirty Forms project.


This module causes Dirty Forms to use jQuery UI as its dialog when the user attempts to leave the page by clicking a hyperlink (but not when interacting with the navigation buttons of the browser).

Only 1 dialog module can be used by Dirty Forms at a time. The default behavior without this package is to use the browser's built in dialog that is fired by the beforeunload event.


Prerequesites must be included in this order:

If you are using a Package Manager, these dependencies will be installed automatically, but depending on your environment you may still need to add references to them manually.

Download & Installation

There are several different ways to get the code. Some examples below:


The jQuery UI dialog module is available over jsDelivr CDN and can directly be included on every page.

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/jquery.dirtyforms/2.0.0/jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

jsDelivr also supports on-the-fly concatenation of files, so you can reference only 1 URL to get jQuery, jQuery UI, jquery.dirtyforms, and jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui in one request.

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/g/jquery@1.11.3,jquery.ui@1.11.3,jquery.dirtyforms@2.0.0(jquery.dirtyforms.min.js+jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui.min.js)"></script>


Download and save one of two available files to include the jQuery UI dialog module to your page, either the latest distribution or the latest minified version.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

You can also conveniently get all of the latest Dirty Forms files in one Zip Download.

Package Managers

The jQuery UI dialog module is even available through NPM, Bower, and NuGet. Just use one of the following commands below to install the dialog module, including all dependencies.

NPM version Bower version NuGet version


// NPM
$ npm install jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui

// Bower
$ bower install jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui

// NuGet
PM> Install-Package jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui


A SourceMap file is also available via CDN or your favorite package manager.


<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/jquery.dirtyforms/2.0.0/jquery.dirtyforms.dialogs.jquery-ui.min.js.map"></script>

Package Managers

NPM, Bower, and NuGet will install the SourceMap file into the destination directory.



This dialog module is automatic. Simply include the reference to the dialog module after the prerequisites and use Dirty Forms as per the documentation and jQuery UI as per the documentation.
