Advertisements

Description

Different styling and theming can be applied to a dialog. Following are the ways to apply themes and styles to a dialog −

  • Themes can be included in the dialog by adding the attribute data-theme to any containers such as header, footer, or content.

  • Include data-corners = "false" to remove the rounded corner of the dialog as by default the corners are set as rounded.

  • data-overlay-theme attribute sets the overlay to any pattern letter.

  • Multiple button can also be used in the dialogs. The dialog can be fixed to the top by including {margin-top:0} to the class specified for the page. ui-dialog.my-dialog .ui-dialog-contain
