This is my Modal jQuery code.

right now the buttons are aligned on the right side one after the other.
How do I align the Delete button all the way to the left and leave the others where they are on the right?


$( function() {
   $('#ModalForm').dialog(
   {
        modal : true ,
	height: 300,
	width: 500,
        autoOpen : false ,
        buttons  : {
            Delete : function() {
                deleteAnswer();
            } ,
            Cancel : function() {
                closeForm();
            } ,
            Submit : function() {
                addAnswer();
            } 
        }
   });
});

This was a fun one to solve.

I had to add the following CSS after the included jquery ui css

            .ui-button{ float: right }
            .ui-dialog-buttonset { float: none; width : 100%}
            .floatleft { float: left }


Then the dialog is defined as

          $('.demo').dialog(
         {
              modal : true ,
                              height: 300,
                              width: 500,
              autoOpen : true ,
              buttons  : {
                  Delete : function() {
                      deleteAnswer();
                  } ,
                  Cancel : function() {
                      closeForm();
                  } ,
                  Submit : function() {
                      addAnswer();
                  }
              },
              open: function(event, ui) {
                    $(this).parent().find("button:contains(Delete)").addClass("floatleft");
              }
         });


By changing how the float right works you may have to change the order you add your buttons to the dialog in order to get them in the order you want them.  Float rights will work backwards.

Where do I add the
            .ui-button{ float: right }
            .ui-dialog-buttonset { float: none; width : 100%}
            .floatleft { float: left }

Do I add it in style tags?

<style>
            .ui-button{ float: right }
            .ui-dialog-buttonset { float: none; width : 100%}
            .floatleft { float: left }
</style>

This is what I did from your post and it is not working: (I get no errors either)



<script src="/i/libraries/jquery-ui/1.8/ui/minified/jquery-ui-1.8.custom.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href = "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.7.2/themes/
redmond/jquery-ui.css" type="text/css" />

<style>
    .ui-button{ float: right }
    .ui-dialog-buttonset { float: none; width : 100%}
    .floatleft { float: left }
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
var htmldb_delete_message='Would you like to perform this delete action?';
$( function() {
   $('#ModalForm').dialog(
   {
        modal : true ,
      height: 300,
      width: 500,
        autoOpen : false ,
        buttons  : {
            Cancel : function() {
                closeForm();
            } ,
            Submit : function() {
                addAnswer();
            } ,
            Delete : function() {
                deleteAnswer();
            }
        },
        open: function(event, ui) {
         $(this).parent().find("button:contains(Delete)").addClass("floatleft");
        }
   });
});
function openForm(pAnswerID){
   // Prepopulate form using AJAX
    ........................
    ........................
    ........................

  // Open the Form
  $('#ModalForm').dialog('open');
}

I built that with jQuery UI.1.8.4.css

It looks like the css applied changed between 1.7 and 1.8

The upgrade guide talks about changes to the buttons in the dialog between 1.7 and 1.8

you should use the same version of CSS and you have for the jQuery UI javascript.
