$( function() {
    $( "#dialog" ).dialog({
      autoOpen: false,
      show: {
        effect: "blind",
        duration: 1000
      },

    });
 
    $( "#opener" ).on( "click", function() {
      $( "#dialog" ).dialog( "open" );
    });
  } );

Open in new window


htmlcode:
<div id="dialog" title="hello" style= "float:left;">
  <p>HI welcome to the website, more text will be here.</p>
</div>
<button id="opener" style="float:right;width:50px;height:50px;"><i class="fa fa-info" aria-hidden="true"></i></button>

Open in new window


How can I make the dialog box bigger in width and change the default orange color to blue?

I'm assuming you're using jQuery UI in your above example. It's not completely clear. However, overriding the width and height of the dialog is relatively easy. You just need to inject your own CSS. You'll need to use the !important rule to make it stick.
.ui-dialog
{
  width: 500px !important;
  height: 400px !important;
}

Open in new window

You can alter colors in the same way although jQuery UI offers a number of theme options to handle this more cleanly. Look at http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/ and see if you can create the theme that suits your liking.

Here's a jsfiddle which demonstrates overriding the width and height properties of the dialog control: https://jsfiddle.net/g3hc8p55/
