Styling the Modal PopUps in your Skin

In revising my Metro7 skins for DNN Platform / evoq I came across the problem that I could not change the style settings for a popup. The changes were only applied when I had thepopups disabled.


The search for a solution, it initially proved difficult and took several days to complete.However, the solution is quite simple if you know what you must do.


It created a new UserControl called popUpSkin.ascx with the following content:


1.<%@ Control Language="C#" CodeBehind="~/DesktopModules/Skins/skin.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Skin" %>
2.<div id="ContentPane" runat="server" />


After you create a style sheet file called popUpSkin.css with the following values​​:


1.html {height: auto;}


The third and last type of document in the popUpSkin.doctype.xml file is still created withthe following contents:


1.<SkinDocType><![CDATA[<!DOCTYPE html>]]><SkinDocType>


After create this file, now are also the changes in the skin stylesheet Skin.css such as the buttons, tabs, ect. taken as the pop, as in the control sites.

Hace un buen tiempo estoy buscando documentacion de como hacer una ventana modal en dotnetnuke, en donde dicha ventana emergente se ejecute con un enlace o url invocando una pagina web .aspx, .ascx o html.

Es posible colocar un ejemplo que demuestre el resultado de este topico para ver si es lo que estoy buscando.

Hi Luis,

if I understanding you right, you want to open a page on your own module in a Modal PopUp. This is not the topic of my blog above. The Topic is designing the layout of the existing MaodalPopups e.g Page Settings, Module Settings ... that are allready included into the DNN Platform Frame work.

But I think I have found a post that Reflex to your Topic with a lot of links

Please use only english to post on this site!
