JQuery UI Ajax Dialog Box, Is it posisble for new content to load within the dialog box ?

What I mean by this is :  once the dialog box has opened and a link is clicked within box it will bring the content into the full page rather than been contained within the dialog box.

You can see a working example here.. if you click "giftwrap this item" the dialog box pops up. If you then click add to cart within the dialog the whole page refreshes.

The code I am using is below is it possible for it to refresh within the dialog?


           <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({width:950, height:800});
                }
            );
            //prevent the browser to follow the link
            return false;
        });
    });
    </script>

Hi,

Instead of using a DIV as you dialog body, you can use an IFRAME. Then you can submit for or click links in the IFRAME and make them load in the IFRAME instead of the main window.
