  1. Thanks, I'll head down that path... I actually did try the Bootstrap stuff but ran into a conflict between the event handler and prototype.js so I backed off from Bootstrap. I've not played with innerHTML so I'll do the research and give it a go.
  2. Thanks @justsomeguy... while I like to think I know what I'm doing, the more I learn the less I know I suggested I have to rethink this thing as the dialog box or window needs to show different info based on which button was clicked. So that means I can't create the dialog when the main window shows as the info in that dialog will be static. Guess I could use AJAX to update the dialog but I'm thinking it's probably best to build the dialog on the fly when the user clicks on a button. So it's back to square one for me and trying to find good examples of what I want to do. Thanks again for you help and feel free to throw more great ideas please.
  3. Actually I think I will have to rethink this whole idea and consider using AJAX to update the dialog. Any thoughts appreciated please.
  4. I am using the W3Schools CSS/JS modal dialog example: https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_modals.asp However I would like to be able to pass a parameter from the button to the modal window as a variable so I can use it to perform a database query and populate the modal. I HAVE looked through this site and others and can't find a straight forward way to do this. My code: The button: <button onclick='myModal($somevariable)'>Show modal</button> The click function: function myModal(myParams) { modal.style.display = "block" } The modal: var modal = document.getElementById('myModal'); The HTML on the webpage: <!-- The Modal --> <div id="myModal" class="modal"> <!-- Modal content --> <div class="modal-content"> <div class="modal-header"> <span class="close">×</span> <h2>Shot Plot</h2> </div> <div class="modal-body"> <p>Some stuff in the Modal Body using the myParams variable??</p> <p>Some other text...</p> </div> <div class="modal-footer"> <h3>footer</h3> </div> </div> </div> Any help appreciated, Lance
