Hi all,

I have used some Javascript and CSS I found on the net to create a pop up window
that successfully grey's out the main page when it appears. To enhance the effect, I want the pop up window to fade in and out. I don't know Java and wondered if any of you guys could amend the code  I have so that the pop up windows fades in and out, when opened/closed.
Here is the code:


<script type="text/javascript">
function showPopUp(el) {
var cvr = document.getElementById("cover")
var dlg = document.getElementById(el)
cvr.style.display = "block"
dlg.style.display = "block"
if (document.body.style.overflow = "hidden") {
cvr.style.width = "1024"
cvr.style.height = "100%"
}
}
function closePopUp(el) {
var cvr = document.getElementById("cover")
var dlg = document.getElementById(el)
cvr.style.display = "none"
dlg.style.display = "none"
document.body.style.overflowY = "scroll"
}
</script>

CSS:

#dialog {
display:none;
left:220px;
top:200px;
width:500px;
height:300px;
position:absolute;
z-index:100;
background:white;
border:1px solid gray
}





#cover {
display:none;
position:absolute;
left:0px;
top:0px;
width:100%;
height:100%;
background:black;
filter:alpha(Opacity=70);
opacity:0.5;
-moz-opacity:0.5;
-khtml-opacity:0.5
}

Thanks in advance

Hi,

This may be an easer method, you could use a jquery dialogue, and use fade-in on the open event and fade-out on the close event, using a model confirmation.

Hi,

You need to download the jquery ui plugin from here:  http://jqueryui.com/download

Extract it into your folder system,

And then include it on your page in the heading like the lines below,

The code for the standard model dialouge box is here (see view source): http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/#modal-message

Fading out can be acheived by using a similar example as below:

$("#dialog").dialog({
  close: {effect: "fadeOut", duration: 5000},
  open: {effect: "fadeIn", duration: 5000}
});






<link type="text/css" href="css/custom-theme/jquery-ui-1.8.4.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-ui-1.8.4.custom.min.js"></script>

Open in new window

Actually the effects can be achieved as show here: http://jqueryui.com/demos/effect/

$("#dialog").dialog({
  close:'slide',
  open: 'puff'
});
