    I am upgrading from a very old version of the C1Dialog. What is the syntax in the current version to open / show a C1Dialog from within javascript? I don’t want to postback.

    In the older version, I was using dialog.showModal();

    That worked great. Thank you!

    Last question (hopefully) on this conversion - what about setUrl and set_text? How are those handled client side now? I need to set both dynamically in javascript.

    Hi James,

    The Dialog can load the content from URL dynamically using the contentUrl property. Please refer to the following code snippet for reference:


    Also, for changing text, you may get the element and change the content by DOM manipulation.

    That worked great for the contentUrl. Here is what I ended up doing for the title which also worked great:

    $(‘#<%=dialog.ClientID%>’).c1dialog(“option”, “title”, “Insert Title Here”);

    Hello James,

    Thank you for notifying us that your issue has been resolved. We are glad to know it. We were not sure if you were referring to the Title of the Dialog. That is why we suggested the DOM manipulation.

    Thank you once again for sharing your efforts here.
