jQuery Mobile - Popup Theme


You can apply different types of theme for the popup using the following options −

  • data-theme − It defines the theme for the popup.

  • data-overlay-theme − It displays the transparent layer behind the popup.


Following example demonstrates the use of popup theme in the jQuery Mobile Framework.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Popup Theme</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

      <div data-role = "page">
         <div data-role = "header">
         <div id = "page1" data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <a href = "#themeA_ovrlyA" data-rel = "popup" class = "ui-btn  ui-btn-inline">
               Theme A and Overlay A</a>
            <div id = "themeA_ovrlyA" data-role = "popup" data-theme = "a" 
               data-overlay-theme = "a" class = "ui-content">
               <p>This has both theme A and overlay theme A.</p>
            <a href = "#themeB_ovrlyB" data-rel = "popup" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline">
               Theme B and overlay A</a>
            <div id = "themeB_ovrlyB" data-role = "popup" data-overlay-theme = "b" 
               data-theme = "b" class = "ui-content">
               <p>This has both theme B and overlay theme B.</p>
         <div data-role = "footer">


Let's carry out the following steps to see how the above code works −
