jquery modal dialog.

I am using jquery modal dialog.
In the popup I need to show 400 px(width) by 200px(height) window with all the css design.
But the default size of the Jquery modal dialog is 300px only. So part of the popup is going inside the   modal dialog. I checked "jquery-ui.css" file to find out the width. But it didnt work.
It seems its getting the width dynamically.

And one more thing how to set the back ground color of the page to light gray.
I am using Visual Studio 2005 for development. How I can debug javascript in VS2005.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

if you want to set the values using jquery it needs to be this way
$("#checkbox1").val(value1);

you can apply the class the modal dialog box, after the dialog box is generated.
Also width and height can applied as an option also (see the link given below)
http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/#option-height
http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/#option-width

also you can see the markup generated here
http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/
goto the theming tab to check the sample markup

in above mentioned links, you need to check
$( ".selector" ).dialog({ height: 530 }); \\while initializing
$( ".selector" ).dialog( "option", "height", 530 ); \\setter

$( ".selector" ).dialog({ width: 530 }); \\while initializing
$( ".selector" ).dialog( "option", "width", 530 ); \\setter

Hi

Thanks for the reply, I have figured out how to set the width and height.
But there is a problem , my div width is 350px, I set the modal dialog width as 420px.
Other wise its showing scrollbars for the modal window, which I dont want.
My question is, is it possible can we set the same width and height for the modal dialog
as like my div without the scroll bars.
I appreciate your time .

thanks

Hi
I fixed the width problem.
Still there is aproblem.
There are 2 checkboxes  and button on the modal dialog.
When the user checks one of the (or both) checkboxes and clicks on the button.
How the values will be passed to the page behind it.
The setVisibility() function runs when the use clicks on the Button.
I captured the values from check boxes successfully but I am not able to
pass those values to the page(lets pass it to a textbox).
I am getting the corect values from the alert boxes.
but the below line not passing the values to the page.
$("#checkbox1").value = value1;
What mistake I am doing here.

Once again thanks for your time.



<script type="text/javascript">
      function setVisibility(id, visibility) { 
      var value1,value2;
      ($("#check1").attr("checked")) ? value1 = 1 : value1 = 0;
      ($("#check2").attr("checked")) ? value2 = 2 : value2 = 0;
       $("#textbox1").value = value1;
      
      alert(value1);
      alert(value2);
       
      document.getElementById(id).style.display = visibility;
      $("#dialog").dialog("close");
      }
    </script>

Open in new window
