Topic: Modal backdrop: static not allowing clicks without closing the modal

Mizhas free asked 5 years ago

The tittle says it all. Regarding documentation Type: boolean | "static" Includes a modal-backdrop element. Alternatively, specify static for a backdrop which doesn't close the modal on click. Any solution for this?

In my case I was able to make a workaround by using this config settings

config: { backdrop: false, ignoreBackdropClick: true, class: 'modal-lg modal-full-height modal-right w-100', containerClass: 'right w-50 fixed-right shadow', }

with just one adjustment, in css file by adding

.fixed-right { position: fixed; right: 0px; left: auto;}

Ok, maybe I was wrong about what 'static' should be doing. Let me explain my problem again: I want the modal to act as a popup which does not close automatically either interrupts the normal behaviour of the website. Basically, I want a little 'window' to show some extra information which does not prevent the user to interact with the website. Your website has it all around but it seems to be jquery based to I need some help with the angular way of achieving this. I have tried [config]={backdrop: false, ignoreBackdropClick: true} so far but even if it removes the backdrop and prevents the closing, I am not allowed to interact with the forms behind the backdrop for example.   I hope the issue its a little more clear now.

There's no possibility because modal is always on top. He has an underlying layer that blocks your interaction with the elements behind it. But you can overwrite that default behavior with below css code. Check my workaround, and let me know if it fits your needs. But I can't guarantee you if this solution will work for 100% chances. { z-index: -1 !important; } Best Regards, Damian

So it is not possible because of Angular? I mean, if you go here: and use the side modal demo buttons you will see that you can still interact with the buttons even if one modal is open so the question is, why is not possible to do this in angular?

Dear igor romanovsky, If you have the same problem as Mizhas mentioned, then unfortunately there is no workaround for now. We need to fix something in the component. Best, Arek

Still no solution for this?

Konrad Stępień staff commented 4 years ago

Hi @Gezim Gashi, Could you make a new support post? Because this post has 2 years old. And a lot has changed since then, and I need more information about your project for help you.

Nate free commented 3 years ago

Has there been any progress on this? Its been 2 years, surely this must be fixed by now...

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 3 years ago

To achieve this kind of functionality, you can use the cookie modal and set the ignoreBackdropClick to false.

Damian Gemza staff answered 5 years ago

Dear Mizhas, Please add below code to the element which contains mdbModal directive.
[config]="{backdrop: 'static'}"
The whole code looks like below:
<button type="button" mdbBtn color="primary" class="relative waves-light" (click)="" mdbWavesEffect>Launch demo modal</button>

<div mdbModal #basicModal="mdbModal" class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myBasicModalLabel" [config]="{backdrop: 'static'}"


<div class="modal-dialog"role="document">

<div class="modal-content">

<div class="modal-header">

<button type="button" class="close pull-right" aria-label="Close" (click)="basicModal.hide()">

<span aria-hidden="true">×</span>


<h4 class="modal-title w-100" id="myModalLabel">Modal title</h4>


<div class="modal-body">



<div class="modal-footer">

<button type="button" mdbBtn color="secondary" class="waves-light" aria-label="Close" (click)="basicModal.hide()"mdbWavesEffect>Close</button>

<button type="button" mdbBtn color="primary"class="relative waves-light"mdbWavesEffect>Save changes</button>
