Learn How to Create jQuery Dialog Box

A dialog is a floating window that contains a title bar and a content area. The dialog window can be moved, resized and closed with the 'x' icon by default.

If the content length exceeds the maximum height, a scrollbar will automatically appear.

A bottom button bar and semi-transparent modal overlay layer are common options that can be added.
