Work with Popup

Hiding/showing Popup#

You can hide and show a popup using the hide() and show() methods. The show() method takes the following parameters:

element(HTMLElement) mandatory, the container to place a popup in
config(object) optional, the configuration object of a popup. Can contain the properties below:
  • centering - (boolean) defines whether a popup should be centered relative to the element, true by default
  • auto - (boolean) enables auto-positioning of a popup, i.e. it will be shown at that side of an element which provides enough space for a popup
  • mode - (string) the position relative to the element to show a popup at:"left","right","bottom" (default),"top"
  • indent - (number) the offset of a popup relative to the element

This method should be called each time you need to render a popup on a page.

popup.show("popup_container");

This is how you can hide a popup:

popup.hide();
