Hi! I am a developer. I am using jquery to create a modal dialog.
I am using the following code snippets. Please tell what is going wrong:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="jquery-ui-1.8.7.custom.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.min.1.4.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-ui.min.1.8.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.min.1.3.2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-ui.min.1.7.2.js"></script>
$(document).ready(function () {
        height: 'auto',
        width: 'auto',
        modal: true,
        autoOpen: false
    $("#addaccountlink").click(function (e) {

Please help!

You have 3 jquery scripts and 2 jquery-ui scripts included. You just need one of each, preferably the latest version.

You should show your HTML too.

Perhaps I should show my full implementation. The following code is an aspx code with the js files in the Scripts:

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="ModalDialogDemoNew._Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery.js"></script>
<link href="Scripts/jquery-ui-1.8.7.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery/1.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery-ui/1.8/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery-ui/1.7.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/addaccount.js"></script>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <a href="#" id="addaccountlink">Add an account</a>
    <a href="Scripts/testNew.html">Redirect</a>
    <div id="addaccount" style="display: none; padding: 5px"></div>

Please suggest something!

Start by removing line 7, 11 and 12.

I pasted your code here, and appears to be working: http://jsbin.com/omigu4/edit

I made the changes but the cross icon is not coming.

Is your UI folder incomplete perhaps ?

Can you suggesst which UI files I need to make it work correctly.

The least you need next to the CSS is the images folder that belongs with it.

The code works fine when the js files are referenced from internet.
But when I download them in pc and reference locally they don't work properly.
This is the scenario in my case.

Download a theme and put the images folder where the css is.

Does it work if you use the remote scripts, as on the jsbin link ?

I did that also it is still not working.
Actually I have to open a web page in side a div tag.
When the dialog is opening automatically, it is working perfectly but when I am opening by using


it is malfunctioning. What is the probable reason?

You are right. I downloaded a new theme and implemented the modal dialog and it is working perfectly.
Can you do me one more favour.
How can I enable the help or "?" icon in the modal dialog.
Thanks in advance.
Have a nice day.

Not sure, perhaps with options/buttons...

OK. I will do that. Many many thanks for your help.
