Close jqModal window via code

I'm using jqmodal (http://dev.iceburg.net/jquery/jqModal), a plugin for JQuery to create modal windows allowing a user of our CRM system to add notes to our database.

When the user clicks an icon, a modal window opens with the content of that window retrieved via Ajax from another URL.

The content of that window is a form that uses the JQuery ajax feature itself to post data to another URL to store in a database, when the user hits a button.

I want to be able to close the modal window, once the ajax executed within the modal window reports the post has been completed.

I've stripped the code down to the salient parts and is as follows.  Everything works ok on my script, I just need to understand how to close that window, which I'm guessing needs to be where I've placed ###code to close window### in the code.

Any help from users of this great JQuery plugin, will be appreciated.




Default.asp - the main script with the link that triggers the modal window on click

<html>

<head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

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

<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function () {

$('#addnote').jqm({ajax: '@rel', trigger: 'a.addnotetrigger'});

});	

</script>	

</head>

<body class="default">

<div class="jqmWindow" id="addnote">

Please wait... <img src="images/loading.gif" alt="loading" />

</div>	

<a class="addnotetrigger" rel="ajax_addnote.asp?id=123">Add Note</a>

</body>

</html>
 

ajax_addnote.asp - the script that is the content of the modal window pulled via ajax
 

<html>

<head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function () {

	$("#submitnotebutton").bind("click", function(e){

    	$.post("ajax_createnote.asp", {details: $('#notedetails').val(), associateid: $('#associateid').val()},

		function(data){

			###code to close window###
 
 

		}

	);

});

});	  	

</script>

</head>

<body>

<div class="container">

	<div class="headeradmin">Note</div>

	<table class="standardtable">

	<tr>

	<td>Associate</td>

	<td>

	<input id="associateid" name="associateid">"

	</td>

	</tr>

	<tr>

	<td>Note</td>

	<td>

	<textarea id="notedetails" cols="60" rows="10"></textarea>

	</td>

	</tr>

	<tr>

	<td></td>

	<td>

	<input id="submitnotebutton" type="button" value="Add"

	</td>

	</tr>	

	</table>

</div>

</body>

</html>
 

ajax_createnote.asp
 

This script adds the data from the above form into the database

If "addNote" is the id of your modal dialog try this, otherwise use the proper id.
$('#addnote').jqmHide()

Open in new window

Fixed it.   I didn't need to reload Jquery in ajax_addnote.asp.  When I removed that from the code and called $('#addnote').jqmHide();   it closed the modal dialog as required.
