jQuery Mobile: Popup dialog

This entry is part 61 of 73 in the series jQuery Mobile

Standard dialog box can be placed into a popup.

We can add the data-dismissible=”false” attribute to the popup to let the popup take control of the screen.

You can only close the dialog box if you click inside the dialog box.

                <p>This action cannot be undone.</p>
                <a href='#' class='ui-btn ui-corner-all ui-shadow ui-btn-inline ui-btn-b' data-rel='back'>Cancel</a>
                <a href='#' class='ui-btn ui-corner-all ui-shadow ui-btn-inline ui-btn-b' data-rel='back' data-transition='flow'>Delete</a>

    <div data-role='footer' data-position='fixed'>
        <h4 style='text-align:center;'>I'm the footer</h4>

Try The Code

In this example, I have used an anchor to create the delete page button.  I have used class=’ui-btn-a’ to make the button into a theme a button.

As for the popup dialog, it was built using theme b.

In line 21, ui-content class was added to the popup to add the standard 15px of padding.
