jQuery UI Dialog Error

Hello Experts!

Have any of you run into the following error, and found the solution?

I have code similar to the following:

var $dialog = $('<div></div>');

function popup() {
	var title = "Question";
	var html = "Would you like to do this?";
	$dialog.html(html);
	$dialog.dialog({
		title: title,
		resizable: false,
		buttons: {
			" Yes ": function() {
				$( this ).dialog( "close" );
				yes_function();
			},
			" No ": function() {
				$( this ).dialog( "close" );
				no_function();
			}
		}
	});
}

Open in new window


However whenever I click on one of the buttons, I get a "cannot call methods on dialog prior to initialization; attempted to call method 'close'" error.

I'm using jquery-ui version 1.10.4 (the latest version.)

Hi,
hm, your code seems to work fine in my sample jsfiddle:
http://jsfiddle.net/EE_RainerJ/uun8B/

Can you post a link to your page or attach your complete page?
Seems that the issue is coming from somewhere else / dependent from the rest of the page/script.

HTH

Did I mention that the problem only happens in IE?  Probably not, huh?

Sorry about that.  It appears that this little omitted fact is probably key to my problem as I can't even get your jsfiddle to work in my IE 8.

Hi,
OK - so its a browser specific / IE8 issue. I have to make a local test as jsFiddle does not run in IE8.

With which browser do you get the error? The jsFiddle works with IE11 (as well as simulated IE10 and 9).

Will be back soon - thanks.

Sorry, I found an extra $( this ).dialog( "close" ); in the yes and no functions.

There would be no solution to this other than fixing the error in the yes and no functions.
