How to use

First you have to include the javascript files and css file in the head of your html document.

<link  href="../Source/css/MooDialog.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<script src="../Source/MooDialog.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

And depending on the functionality you want you use, you have to include, for example, the following files

<script src="../Source/MooDialog.Alert.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../Source/MooDialog.Request.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

If you want to use the standard fancy fade-in and fade-out effects, you should include Overlay.js and MooDialog.Fx.js in your page:

<script src="../Source/Overlay.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../Source/MooDialog.Fx" type="text/javascript"></script>

Packager

MooDialog is packager ready. This means you can build MooDialog to a single file with

Build via Packager (ty cpojer)

./packager register /path/to/MooDialog
./packager build MooDialog/* > MooDialog.js

To build this plugin without external dependencies use

./packager build MooDialog/* +use-only MooDialog > MooDialog.js

CSS

MooDialog does not style any element with JavaScript, but only uses CSS. The Element.setStyle method is only used to show and hide the dialog.

You can use the class option to use your own styles, or change the MooDialog.css file.


Class Moodialog

Constructor

var dialog = new MooDialog([options]);

Arguments

  1. options: (object) See the options section.

MooDialog.Request method: setRequestOptions

Because you cannot refer to the dialog instance if you put the requestopions as second argument, this is a separate method to set them. This helps you to change the content of the dialog on for example the onRequest event of Request.

var dialog = new MooDialog.Request('exampleText.html');
dialog.setRequestOptions({
    onRequest: function(){
        dialog.setContent('loading...');
    }
});
