[Seaside] jQuery lightbox prompt

You don't have to create the dialog until you want to. Are you talking opening the dialog for the first time, or is this a persistent dialog that you want to update?

I assume that's the pattern from JQDialogFunctionalTest>>renderLightboxOn: ... but I'd like to do is to effectively defer the building of the scirpt: () code until the 'onClick: (html jQuery id: id) dialog open;' is triggered.  I don't have enough context until then (domain state would determine the modal dialog component). 

The jQuery lightbox example, as I understand it, sets up the lightbox component before the #onClick: script, since the script needs the component id.  I'd like to create the lightbox component from within a #callback: ... just like the way SULightbox is used.

Thanks again, (and I keep thinking I'm missing something really obvious),Bob

The way i do it is with a component, like BlahComponent which has something like:

renderContentOn: html

html div
    script: (html jQuery dialog new) modal: true;
    with: [...whatever...].

Sorry, writing this from memory. Anyway, i sort of template like that. Just return that to your page with ajax or whatever.

One more question about using a lightbox... 

I use a lightbox to present prompts as a nice modal dialog from a callback.Is there a jQuery equivlanet?
A typtical use would be... 

MyComponentSubclass>>renderContentOn: hmtl<...>	callback: [		string := self somethingFromTheDomain.

		answer := self prompt: string title: 'Testing'.		self doSomethingWith: answer]
MyComponent>>prompt: aString title: aTitle	^self lightbox: (MyDialogPrompt prompt: aString title: aTitle

SULightbox works well with WAComponent>>show:onAnswer:delegation: which allows me to build the prompt string within the callback, but I can find no obvious jQuery equivalent.   

The dialog examples, like JQDialogFunctionalTest>>renderLightboxOn: build the dialog content during rendering, which is too early.
I suspect it's a simple answer, but I just can't find it, 

and I'd rather not code my own since it would probably be a redudent exercise. 
BTW: I really like the ease with which jQuery can be used in Seaside; very cool.Replacing my SULightbox is the last bit I need to move my code entirely to jQuery. 

Thanks for any help,Bob
