In this tutorial we are going to show how we can create a popup using Bootstrap framework

Bootstrap is a front end GUI framework for developing responsive website. Bootstrap is a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript code. Using this we can create a user friendly website whose GUI is similar and responsive for any kind of devices.

Our bootstrap responsive themes will provide you a better solution. Take a look.

Bootstrap Required File

To use bootstrap framework , in the head section of our page we must set viewport, bootstrap.min.js, bootstrap.min.css, and jquery file as shown below.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

POPUP BOX IN BOOTSTRAP 
bootstrap popup




Bootstrap Pop-Up box can be shown via two ways :

  1. When a user clicks a button or image
  2. Automatic display popup box when page loads.

Steps For Option 1 . (When user clicks a button or image):

1. Let’s create a bootstrap button/image/link. So, when user clicks it a popup box will get displayed .

button

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="modal" data-target=".demo-popup">button</button>

  NOTE : the data-target option is set to the id or class given to modal.  So when the user clicks the button, popup box will be displayed.

2. Design modal (popup box ) :

modal structureIn the above modal structure we can see that modal is the outer layer and it contain further two sections. Let’s create them :

MODAL :

 <div class="modal fade demo-popup" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myLargeModalLabel-1" aria-hidden="true">

In the above modal code class is set to fade, only if we want a fade effect. Demo-popup class is given to modal, which is already linked with the button we designed above. 

MODAL  DIALOG :

 <div class="modal-dialog modal-sm"> 

modal-sm is given for small popup box, modal -lg for large popup box and if we don’t specify size of popup box the default is medium.

MODAL  CONTENT:

 <div class="modal-content"> 

Now, In Modal-Content we set our Popup box , Header (title), Body and Footer.

Header (of pop-up box)

 <div class="modal-header"><button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button> <h3 class="modal-title">this is my title of popup box </h3> </div> 

Body(of popup box)

 <div class="modal-body"> This is my body section of popup box .... </div> 

Footer(of popup box)

 <div class="modal-footer"> <a href="http://www.google.com"> This is my FOOTER of popup box ....</a> </div> 

Now, close opening div of modal content, modal dialog and modal.

Our modal (popup box) is ready. Just run the webpage and click button to view popup box.

</div><!-- /.modal-dialog -->

Steps For Option 2 . (Automatic display popup box when page loads.)

The steps for creating a modal(popup box ) is same as above.  In order to get it loaded automatically, we add JavaScript code in script file. The code is shown below :

 $(document).ready(function() { $('.form-popup').modal({ show: true, }) }); 

where form-popup is the class given to the modal .
