jquery opens a dialog on page refresh

I calll a function to set a list item inside the open: event for a dialog. But that dialog is getting opened on page refresh.

I have Success, Warning and Failure dialogs which my code successfully calls when needed. But they are also called on page initialization. Why?

I do have a div tag associated with this dialog, which includes empty list items. The open: event of the dialog sets the events.

How can I change this so the dialog will not initialize itself on page refresh?

Without seeing the code I can just guess.

But my guess is that you can include autoOpen: false in the parameter list and they will initialize but not open when the page is refreshed.

If they are only supposed to be initialized based on an event I'd guess you have a coding error.
