Hi All,

I am trying to get my head around how I would generate a popup in the CMS. Basically, my dashboard module lists most recently modified files, along with an "edit this" link.

Currently, this link opens up the edit file form in a new window, but other than that, it works fine. I would like to open the form however in a popup, as if it was in "Files and Images".

How would I go about doing this? I take it I need to load in some of the prototype libraries, but I am not sure which ones, or what to do them (I use jQuery, not Prototype)

Cheers,

Mo

Try something snappy like the thicklightsomethingbox popup used with getCMSFields_forpopup:

I used a third party one in the end, this one to be precise: http://jquery.com/demo/grey/

As I was loading it into a new extension of left and main, I could simply add the javascript via requirements. If you are trying to do something else, I am not sure the best way to attach the code?
