Modal dialog

Window modal dialogs for browser (eg. with simq). Depends on jQuery, instance of EventEmitter, uses q promise library.


Unfortunately I don't have any more time to maintain this repository :-(

sad cat


$ npm install modal-dialog


var Dialog = require('modal-dialog');

var d = new Dialog(window.jQuery);
d.title = 'Title of my window';
d.content = 'Lorem lipsum dolor sit amet...'; = 'Info in footer';
d.addButton('OK', function() {
    alert('OK button was clicked');

If you want to set some element directly into header or footer, you can set these variables. Title and info variables are just shortcuts for setting texts.

d.header = $('<div>my custom header</div>');
d.footer = $('<div>my custom footer</div>');

Changing data of created dialog

There are three methods for changing data. Unfortunately you can not change everything (just title, content and info).

d.changeTitle('new title');
d.changeContent('new content');
d.changeInfo('new info');


This modal dialog comes with one simple style which is sincerely horrible, so I recommend to use your own style. You just have to disable the default one.

Dialog.styles = false;

Now you can write your own styles in your css files. Modal dialog has got some classes for you. Names of these classes can be also changed in variable classes. Here are the default ones.

Dialog.classes = {
    container: 'modal_dialog',
    title: 'title',
    header: 'header',
    content: 'content',
    footer: 'footer',
    info: 'info',
    buttons: 'buttons',
    button: 'button',


Settings described above were default settings, but you can set these options for each dialog separately.{
    styles: false

List of options

  • width
  • maxHeight
  • duration (speed of animation in jquery)
  • zIndex
  • styles (disable or allow default styles)
  • classes (override default classes names)
  • overlay (list of options for overlay package)

Confirmation dialog

There is prepared also simple confirmation dialog with two buttons (OK and Cancel).

var Confirm = require('modal-dialog/ConfirmDialog');

var c = new Confirm(window.jQuery, 'Are you really want to continue?');
c.on('true', function() {
    alert('You clicked on the OK button');
c.on('false', function() {
    alert('You clicked on the Cancel button');

Here is how to set own captions for these two buttons.

var c = new Confirm(window.jQuery, 'Some question', 'Yes', 'No');


  • beforeShow (dialog): Called before dialog is opened
  • afterShow (dialog): Called after dialog is opened (after all animations)
  • beforeHide (dialog): Called before dialog is closed
  • afterHide (dialog): Called after dialog is closed (after all animations)
  • true (only confirmations): Called when true button is clicked
  • false (only confirmations): Called when false button is clicked


d.on('afterShow', function(dialog) {
    d === dialog; //true

    console.log('Window is open');
