Hi,

Using an example I have succesfully been able to get a page loading within a dialog box from a link using ajax.  Only trouble is I have not managed to set the width and height of the dialog. This is the code I used: Coudl you tell me where I need to specif the width and height of teh windos and also to make it resizable or with scrollers. Many thanks.


         <a class="ajax" href="http://pa.creatico1.co.uk/products1.asp?category=GiftWrap&product={partno}"> gift wrap this album?</a>              
         




              <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function (){
        $('a.ajax').click(function() {
            var url = this.href;
            var dialog = $('<div style="display:hidden"></div>').appendTo('body');
                        
            // load remote content
            dialog.load(

                url,  
                {},
                function (responseText, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {
                    dialog.dialog();
                }
            );
            //prevent the browser to follow the link
            return false;
        });
    });
    </script>

You could define it like this :
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    $(function (){ 
        $('a.ajax').click(function() { 
            var url = this.href; 
            var dialog = $('<div style="display:hidden; width:200px; height:200px; overflow:auto"></div>').appendTo('body');
                        
            // load remote content 
            dialog.load( 

                url,  
                {}, 
                function (responseText, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) { 
                    dialog.dialog(); 
                } 
            ); 
            //prevent the browser to follow the link 
            return false; 
        }); 
    }); 
    </script>

Hi Burnie

 I tried your code but the dialog window doesn't seem to get bigger.. I set it to 600px x 600px but it is definitley smaller. You can see for yourself here:

I used a jquery ui theme roller - is it perhaps because I chose to not include every component or is this part of the core?

You'll need to pass the dimensions as parameters/options to the .dialog()
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function (){
        $('a.ajax').click(function() {
            var url = this.href;
            var dialog = $('<div style="display:hidden"></div>').appendTo('body');
                        
            // load remote content
            dialog.load(

                url,  
                {},
                function (responseText, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {
                    dialog.dialog({width:600, height:600});
                }
            );
            //prevent the browser to follow the link
            return false;
        });
    });
    </script>

Hi Sudraka,

It iis giving highly unpredicatble results - i.e.totally diffferent in Chrome, firefox than IE - it seems to be a height issue.. I wonder if you have a tip on this?

Cheers,

Alex
