        alert('hidden event fired!');
    });

    $('#editnote').on('shown.bs.modal', function () {
        alert('show event fired!');

How is the modal triggered? Attach the event to whatever element triggers it.

Where you bind the dialog you can add your own functions for open/close

$( "#editnote" ).dialog({
close: function( event, ui ) { // add your code here }
open: function( event, ui ) { // add your code here }
});

Open in new window

Do you have a live link
Just double checked your original code locally and it works fine.

Where is the above script located? Is it at the end of the page?
If not you need to wrap it in a document ready function

Hi JElster,

You're sure you've included jquery in your project? All these bootstrap plugins require it
