Hello Experts,

I am trying to open a dialog box using the dialog jquery ui scripts.
Since the URL is vary i am using the a script attached below.
The url is opening a page inside of root (not a content inside the page) so therefor in the loaded page i added a DIV with an ID dialog.

this is the HREF that should open the dialog:

<div><a href="?add" title="title" class="openerm">Add New</a></div>

Open in new window

Below is the code i addad to the document header to launch the dialog.

Unfortunately it does not work. Please help?!

$('.openerm').each(function() {
		var $dialog = $('<div></div>')
var $link = $(this).one('click', function() {
			title: $link.attr('title'),
			resizable: true,
				$link.click(function() {
	return false;

	return false;
