Build element dynamically

I'm trying to build by own dialogue box (having lots of issues trying to customise the jQuery UI one to my requirements).  The idea is not to have any requiments on external CSS, HTML or Javascript, just call it and it will prepend to the page, and give me the ability to customise items such as border and size later.

I built it fine static proof of concept fine:-

However when I tried to build it dynamically (so I can just call the function and everything is added to the document) it doesn't seem to work.

 I have minified my code only to display the overlay initially which I think is the issue:-
http://jsfiddle.net/tonelm2/as5xf/


When I look at the code after its been executed, all I get is:-

<div></div>

It doesnt seem to store any of the CSS values Ive been adding, which I belive should be added in:-
					$(testOverlay).css('display', 'inline')
						.css('height','1000px')
						.css('position', 'absolute')
						.css('width', '1000px') 
						.css('opacity', '0.40') 
						.css('filter', 'alpha(opacity=40)') 
						.css('background', '#000')
						.css('top', '0') 
						.css('left', '0')
						.css('cursor', 'wait');

Open in new window


However as far as Im aware I can chain the CSS statments like this.

Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Fixed up your code and just made your dynamic elements into objects e.g.
   
    var $testOverlay = $('<div/>');

You seem to comment the below lines in the fiddle

    //$(testDialogue).prepend(testDialogueClose);
    //$(testDialogue).prepend(testDialogueTitle);
    //$(testDialogue).prepend(testDialogueBody);
    //$("body").append(testDialogue);

Hope its not the same case with your original code
