Problem :

I am having a PHP page which the result table contain a link that opens a popup box. Earlier I used JavaScript. But I want to hide the address bar, so this cant be done in JavaScript(hope so). So I tried using jQuery-ui for this.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">

<style type="text/css">
    #data-specs {
        border-collapse: collapse;
    #data-specs th,
    #data-specs td {
        padding: 0px;
        border: 0px;
    .loading {
        position: absolute;
        top: 50%;
        left: 50%;
        margin-top: -8px;
        margin-left: -8px;

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function() {
            var $loading = $('<img src="loading.gif" alt="loading" class="loading">');

            $('#data-specs a').each(function() {
                var $dialog = $('<div></div>')
                var $link = $(this).one('click', function() {
                            title: 'Dialog Title',
                            width: 500,
                            height: 300

                    $ {

                        return false;

                    return false;

My table part code is like this:

print "<table width='875' id='data-specs' align='center'>";
        while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
              print "<tr height='18'>";
              print "<td width=200 align=left style='padding-left:10px'>" . $row['Country'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=70 align=center>" . $row['MidEstimate'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=70 align=center>" . $row['LowEstimate'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=70 align=center>" . $row['HighEstimate'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=118 align=center>" . $row['Source'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=110 align=center>" . $row['StudyLocation'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=89 align=center>" . $row['Relevance'] . "</td>";
              print "<td width=89 align=center>" . $row['Quality'] . "</td>";

print "<td width=61><a style='color:#E46D0A;' href='popupboxD.php?SId=$vv'>".$row['Info']."</a></td>";
              print "</tr>";



print "<table width='875' align='center'>";
print "<tr height='1'><td colspan='9'><font color='#000080'><b>Does not have information on this particular selection.</b></font></td></tr>";
print "</table>";

Now the problem is its all works well. But when I click the link, the jQuery dialog box opens and the style(css) for my parent window is also changing? I want the style to be applied only for dialog window also I want to change the look and feel of dialog window? How can I do this? please help me in this.


I am using this code in drupal 6, but when I click the link the pop-up is not opening as a modal dialog window. IT opens completely in the parent window? How can I in-corporate jQuery UI in drupal 6 with same code? Please help me.

Solution :

To make your own jQuery ui styling (a theme), make your changes on jquery ui themeroller. After that you can download it (before you should deselect all components), if it's a zip decompress it, save the files on your server and replace the href attribute of you following line:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">

But this will change all jQuery ui elements of this page.

=== UPDATE ===

To make the dialog modal you have to add the modal option.

    modal: true
