Displaying the Dialogs

Since the dialogs are originally hidden, you should use a link or button to display them. For example:

<BUTTON onClick="popup1.style.visibility='visible';makeActive(popup1)">Show Element 1</BUTTON>
<BUTTON onClick="popup2.style.visibility='visible';makeActive(popup2)">Show Element 2</BUTTON>

or

<A HREF="#" onClick="popup1.style.visibility='visible';makeActive(popup1);return false">Show Element 1</A>
<A HREF="#" onClick="popup2.style.visibility='visible';makeActive(popup2);return false">Show Element 2</A>

Download

You may also download the dialog page in ZIP format.
