Hi Kostas,

How can I get a Web Modal window to activate with an Input type="Submit" or Type="Image" button with onclick? It works great with a Type="Button". And is there a way to return True/False (or any other value) to the onclick so a button can be used for validation or a Go/No Go from the modal window?

Dear Gus,

If you have this submit button in a form and want to show the form result inside the Modal Window, then there is a simple way to capture the “on submit” event. You just need to add the correct “target” to your form:

correct target of the form in a modal window

If you just want to show a standard Modal Window, then there are many ways to do this using the element ID, Class or “onclick” method:

For example: <input type=”image” onclick=”Modal_Window_1();” … />

Finally, regarding returning a value from the modal, this is not possible in the sense of a “confirm” dialog as the modal is not blocking the JavaScript execution.

Still it allows you to run any JavaScript code on exit, so you can do anything you like there (for example check a modal/page element value and act accordingly):

run JavaScript on modal window close
