Introduction

The dojox.mobile.SimpleDialog widget is a dialog box for mobile. Compared with dijit.Dialog, it has only very little functionality, but the code size is much smaller.

When a SimpleDialog is created, it is initially hidden and not displayed (display=”none”). To show the dialog box, you need to get a reference to the widget and call the show() method.

The contents can be arbitrary HTML, text, or widgets. Note, however, that the widget is initially hidden. You need to be careful when you place something that cannot be initialized under the hidden state into a SimpleDialog.

After a SimpleDialog is created, its DOM node is moved right under the <body> element so that it is positioned correctly at the center of the screen and can be placed over the translucent cover that blocks the entire screen.

Constructor Parameters

Parameter Type Default Description
top String “auto” The top edge position of the widget. If “auto”, the widget is placed at the middle of the screen. Otherwise, the value (ex. “20px”) is used as the top style of widget’s domNode.
left String “auto” The left edge position of the widget. If “auto”, the widget is placed at the center of the screen. Otherwise, the value (ex. “20px”) is used as the left style of widget’s domNode.
modal Boolean true If true, a translucent cover is added over the entire page to prevent the user from interacting with elements on the page.
closeButton Boolean false If true, a button to close the dialog box is displayed at the top-right corner.
closeButtonClass String “mblDomButtonSilverCircleRedCross” A class name of a DOM button to be used as a close button.

Mixin example

This is an example of creating a SimpleDialog from HTML fragment by mixing in dojox.mobile._ContentPaneMixin using the ‘data-dojo-mixins’ attribute.

<div id="dlg_volume"
     data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.SimpleDialog"
     data-dojo-mixins="dojox.mobile._ContentPaneMixin"
     data-dojo-props='href:"dialog.html"'></div>
<!-- dialog.html (HTML fragment file) -->
<div class="mblSimpleDialogTitle">Volume</div>
<div class="mblSimpleDialogText">Ringtone</div>
<input data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.Slider"
       data-dojo-props='value:"0", min:"0", max:"20", step:"0.1", type:"range"'
       style="width:90%;">
<div class="mblSimpleDialogText">Media</div>
<input data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.Slider"
       data-dojo-props='value:"0", min:"0", max:"20", step:"0.1", type:"range"'
       style="width:90%;">
<div class="mblSimpleDialogText">Alarm</div>
<input data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.Slider"
       data-dojo-props='value:"0", min:"0", max:"20", step:"0.1", type:"range"'
       style="width:90%;">
<button data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.Button"
        class="mblSimpleDialogButton2l" onclick="hide('dlg_volume')">OK</button>
<button data-dojo-type="dojox.mobile.Button"
        class="mblSimpleDialogButton2r" onclick="hide('dlg_volume')">Cancel</button>
