I am developing .net apps using vb.net. I would like to explore options for replacing popup windows (which users can disable) with modal windows of some kind. There are going to be endless amounts of code for this by now, so I just want some help weeding through them. My first use of this technique (and typical of what I want to do) is: The user will be looking at a calendar. When he/she clicks a date I want a modal window to display the events associated with that day and have options for adding and deleting events. If events are changed in any way, closing the modal window will refresh the underlying calendar view.
In a perfect world, what I would like to find is:
Reliable well-proven methods that will work in IE firefox, safari and chrome
Example code written in vb.net
Example code that is well documented
Example code designed to help me learn modal windows… not to be copied and used with references
Can anyone point me to a really good match? I know that there will be TONS of examples out
