Apex Modal Windows are a snap using ExtJS
A number of people have been posting about modal windows on the Oracle Apex forum of late.
Some of the solutions provided have used jQuery UI, or using window.showModalDialog.
I’m not a fan of window.showModalDialog as a quick Google search shows it is not supported by all browsers.
The jQuery UI version is functional, but the visual appearance doesn’t live up to the ExtJS standards in my opinion.
Anyway have a look at the Modal Popup Window example and see what you think.
To call the popup window I simply add the highlighted onClick text to my edit link as shown below.
You’d have to agree it doesn’t get much simpler than that.
