Using $col["link"] and $col["linkoptions"] to open a php file within a modal window

QuestionsUsing $col["link"] and $col["linkoptions"] to open a php file within a modal window
Robbie asked 4 years ago

I have a php file which renders a phpgrid. In one column I have a link that I need to have open a different php file, but in a modal window rather than a new browser window.

This is the code which builds the column, where the link is located.


$col = array();
$col["title"] = "Location List";
$col["name"] = "locations";
$col["width"] = "35";
$col["align"] = "center";
$col["search"] = false;
$col["sortable"] = false;
$col["link"] = '"objects/present_in.php?o_id=$o_id")';
$col["default"] = "DETAILS";

$cols[] = $col;


$col = array();
$col["title"] = "Location";
$col["name"] = "locations";
$col["width"] = "15";
$col["align"] = "center";
$col["search"] = false;
$col["sortable"] = false;
$col["default"] = "Locations where this object is present";

$cols[] = $col;

currently it opens a new browser window and keeps the original open with no content. How can I call a function that I can use to open a simple modal, or fancybox to display the grid in php file "present_in.php"?

I can write the function, I am just unsure how to properly call the function from the grid column.

You can refer demos/integration/fancy-box.php

# class='fancybox' to open image in fancybox
$col["default"] = "<a class='fancybox' href=''><img height=25 src=''></a>&quot;;
$cols[] = $col;

You can replace <img> and href with your text and php page.

You also need to iniclude fancybox resource and JS to attach fancybox (as in demo)

If you are using free version,

$col["link"] = '"{name}","newwind","height=500,width=800"); void(0);';

Instead of … you can try calling:{href: "abc.php"});

Here are fancy box includes.

<!– Add fancyBox main JS and CSS files –>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

Thank you Abud, I should have mentioned I am having difficulty with the style of the fancybox, and was hoping to use jQuery to override inline size attributes, and that was why I wanted to call a function, is that not possible here?

I am not using the free version, but I will look at the integrating fancybox demo. Thanks

Ok, let me know if demo code does not solve your query.
