Window.showModalDialog For Mozilla

Dec 7, 2003

Somewhat tested on Moz1.5

<script language="JavaScript1.2" type="text/javascript">

1. edge & help attributes do not work.
2. "height" & "width" must be entered before "center"
3. if you should choose to set "center=yes" do not put in "left" and "top"
4. Minimize button not hidden, but when clicked the window will not disappear
5. Aside from the aforementioned, all features should react the same *fingers crossed*
6. Still in the works, so don't expect miracles. Any problems/queries/complaints please don't hesitate.

dFeatures = 'dialogHeight: 450px; dialogWidth: 1049px; dialogTop: 646px; dialogLeft: 4px; edge: Raised; center: Yes; help: Yes; resizable: Yes; status: Yes;'//default features

modalWin = "";
function xShowModalDialog( sURL, vArguments, sFeatures )
if (sURL==null||sURL=='')
alert ("Invalid URL input.");
return false;
if (vArguments==null||vArguments=='')
if (sFeatures==null||sFeatures=='')
if (window.navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE")!=-1)
window.showModalDialog ( sURL, vArguments, sFeatures );
return false;
sFeatures = sFeatures.replace(/ /gi,'');
aFeatures = sFeatures.split(";");
sWinFeat = "directories=0,menubar=0,titlebar=0,toolbar=0,";
for ( x in aFeatures )
aTmp = aFeatures[x].split(":");
sKey = aTmp[0].toLowerCase();
sVal = aTmp[1];
switch (sKey)
case "dialogheight":
sWinFeat += "height="+sVal+",";
pHeight = sVal;
case "dialogwidth":
sWinFeat += "width="+sVal+",";
pWidth = sVal;
case "dialogtop":
sWinFeat += "screenY="+sVal+",";
case "dialogleft":
sWinFeat += "screenX="+sVal+",";
case "resizable":
sWinFeat += "resizable="+sVal+",";
case "status":
sWinFeat += "status="+sVal+",";
case "center":
if ( sVal.toLowerCase() == "yes" )
sWinFeat += "screenY="+((screen.availHeight-pHeight)/2)+",";
sWinFeat += "screenX="+((screen.availWidth-pWidth)/2)+",";
if (vArguments!=null&&vArguments!='')

function checkFocus()
if (window.navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE")==-1)
if (modalWin!=null && !modalWin.closed)


<body onFocus="checkFocus();">
<input type="button" onclick="javascript:xShowModalDialog('test.htm',this,'');" value="click">

ShowModalDialog - Window Size

Sep 13, 2006

Its the first time Ive used the showModalDialog function and was wondering how best to size the dialog to compensate for the window borders.

My command looks a bit like this:

500px; dialogWidth: 700px; dialogTop: 150px; dialogLeft: 150px; edge: Raised; center: No; help: No; scroll: No; status: Yes;")'

While I set the width and height to 700 and 500 respectively, the internal size of the window.document object comes out to be 694 and 448.

Fixed: Window.showModalDialog And Popup Blockers

Aug 15, 2007

I created a little script on a section of a website that password protects the page. It gives a user 3 tries to enter the correct password and then if they get it wrong, it moves them to another page that says they don't have access.

Recently, I upgraded it to do a window.showModalDialog instead of just using a plain javascript prompt as they don't look as nice and clear as a customized JSP could.

However, now that we've sent that upgrade out, we're finding that some of our users are not seeing the window.showModalDialog and it just loads the page (not the no access page).

The script is below. When I look through it, it looks to me that a user with an active popup blocker should just be sent straight to the no_access.jsp file, but that isn't what's happening. Code:

Replacement For ShowModalDialog - Disallow Anyone To Browse From A Pop-up Window Without Closing It

Jul 17, 2008

I was trying to find a browser independent way to raise a modal dialog. I know that MS IE has showModalDialog and Firefox has an attribute modal for but I was wondering if anyone knew of a solution out there that would disallow anyone to browse from a pop-up window without closing it. Disabling the text highlighting and right click are not required, just disabling the user from browsing with the dialog open.

When The Images Rotate In Mozilla In Between The Rotations, Mozilla Browser Adds A Little Colored Square That Represents A Blank Image?

Jul 16, 2009

had this in browsers areas but people told me I should put it here in Javascript because more people here would probably have seen it before and know why it happens. I have basic Javascript that rotates images. I've noticed any kind of Javascript code that rotates images has this same problem only in Mozilla. When the images rotate in Mozilla in between the rotations, Mozilla browser adds a little colored square that represents a blank image that are able to be seen does anyone know why Mozilla Browser adds that? For example when looking at this page in Mozilla can see it. if you know if this is some Mozilla problem with Javascript and images. Doesn't happen with IE and other browsers shows the images only and nothing else.

From some examples, I created a sleep() function which can put a javascript into sleep while it is executing. It is using the IE-only function showModalDialog. Does anybody know a function which does the same in Firefox and other browsers, or a function which also stops the execution of a script temporary?

This is what I got so far:

Mozilla And DOM

Oct 29, 2006

I have an 'input' that is of type= "image", and name="butt",
that I need to enable/disable from time to time.

In IE (6) I used [document.theform..butt.disabled=condition] and it worked
fine. However, in a Mozilla (latest vers, no number avail) it doesn't see
this as an object. As a workaround I declared a global var 'theButton' and
used 'onLoad="theButton=this;"' within that 'input' to set the value, and
this works fine in both Moz & IE.

Having to use a global var is not a problem, but I would like to know why
the original attempt didn't work in both browsers? The 'form' that 'butt'
is a member of contains 1 select, 3 type="text" inputs, and finaly the
type="image" input.

Perhaps Moz doesn't add an 'input' of type="image" to the collection if the
types are mixed?

Mozilla DOM Element

Jul 3, 2006

I have a function which dynamically adds to a table. It receives a
variable which basically encapsulates this:

<div id="tableid">

It's worth nothing that the incoming variable is a product of XSLT
transformation, so I think it's technically an XML DOM element
(although I'm not too sure on the difference between the XML DOM and
the HTML DOM).

On the incoming variable, I do getElementsByTagName("tr") and -("td")
to get NodeLists of the rows and columns respectively. To insert them
into the table, I create new tr and td elements, then copy the value
over, like this:

//stuff to get a column
trs = getElementsByTagName("tr");
tds = trs[i].getElementsByTagName("td");
thiscol = tds[j];

//stuff to copy the column value
new_tr = document.createElement("tr");
new_td = document.createElement("td");
new_td.innerHTML = thiscol.xml

The .xml part is a Microsoft creation, so the only works in Internet
Explorer. In anything else the column value is rendered as 'undefined'.

I'm trying to make things work in Mozilla too, but an Element node
(thiscol.nodeType gives me &#391;') doesn't have nodeValue implemented.
InnerHTML and OuterHTML are not implemented either.

How on earth are you supposed to extract a value from an XML node if
nodeValue is not defined? Am I going about things in the wrong way?
