How to open SharePoint form in modal popup?

I have a custom list with 3 content types. I would like to create a page with 3 buttons linked to NewForm for each content type. I would like the forms to open in modal dialogs. What is the easiest way to accomplish this for a non-programmer? I have seen some instructions online how to do modal dialogs with JavaScript but I need some help to walk me through how it should be done in my scenario.

Hi,

probably the following should work:
<script type="text/javascript">
function OpenPopup(contenttypeid) {
	var url = "../lists/YourCustomList/NewForm.aspx?ContentTypeId=";
    var options = {
        url: url + contenttypeid,
        title: 'Add a new item',
        allowMaximize: false,
        showClose: true,
        width: 600,
        height: 500,
        dialogReturnValueCallback: refreshCallback
    }
    SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options);
}
</script>
<input type="button" text="New Content Type x" onclick="javascript:OpenPopup('0xYOURCONTENTTYPEIDofX');" />
<input type="button" text="New Content Type y" onclick="javascript:OpenPopup('0xYOURCONTENTTYPEIDofY>');" />

Open in new window



Just adjust the path to your list and the content type ids.

Can you please provide some more instructions how/where to add the script/code to a SharePoint page?

Hi,
sorry I missed your last comment.
Either you add the lines directly on the page using SharePoint designer OR you store the text inside of a text file (should be extension .txt), upload the file to a SharePoint document library and then add a Content Editor Web Part to that page and configure the web part to use the above uploaded text file as source.

I mostly prefer solution 2, because I do not always have access to SharePoint designer. Therefore I create a central Content Asset library (its just a document library) and I upload all texts, scripts ... to that library.
