Topic: Don't dismiss modal on backdrop click

Ulises Ceca free asked 3 years ago


Expected behavior I would like my modals not to be closed when it's clicked outside of it.

Actual behavior It closes when clicking outside.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Have you tried selecting backdrop with modal-backdrop class and preventing default behavior with .preventDefault?

Your documentation at: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/jquery/modals/basic/#via-JavaScript does not include your specified property. Where is this documented?

I have created a snippet with modal which is not closed on outside click: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/jquery/m-dembna/1199872 . Simply add data-backdrop="false" to your div with modal class. Kind regards, Magdalena

Thanks for your efforts, but this is not quite what I am asking. I see you added data-backdrop="false", and whilst this does indeed prevent the popup from being closed, I really need access to a button in the popup where I can get the onclick event in Javascript, and then close this modal in code. So you have a sample of this please?

I modified the previous example to include a closing button. Take a look and let me know if it's helpful. Kind regards, Magdalena https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/jquery/m-dembna/1199872
