Open modal using jquery?

  • Hello,

    I’m trying to open the ons-modal in my page using jquery but I really don’t know why I’m getting the following error:

    ReferenceError: modal is not defined

    This is a working Fiddle with my code:

    And when i add ons.bootstrap(); to the top of my code, I get the following error:

    TypeError: ons.bootstrap is not a function

    Could someone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance.

  • @Jackson Check this fiddle:

    It is working now. Your modal used var instead of id. You do not need to call bootstrap. Onsen is loaded and working.

  • The $(…).modal is not a function is usually caused because scripts are loaded in the wrong order . The browser will execute the scripts in the order it finds them. If in a script you attempt to access an element that hasn’t been reached yet then you will get an error. Make sure that you don’t have a script above one that it requires.

    Multiple jQuery instances

    Sometimes this warning may also be shown if jQuery is declared more than once in your code. The second jQuery declaration prevents bootstrap.js from working correctly. The problem is due to having jQuery instances more than one time. Take care if you are using many files with multiples instance of jQuery. Just leave one instance of jQuery and your code will work.
