You can use JQuery plugin SimpleModal

There's an option called "appendTo", where you can tell where do you put your Modal. The only problem with that approach is that the modal's overlay appear with iframe's size, so you must give it your desired width and height after you open it.

    appendTo: $(window.parent.document).find('body'),
    overlayCss: {backgroundColor:"#333"}, // Optional overlay style
// Set overlay's width
$(window.parent.document).find('#simplemodal-overlay').css('width', '100%');

If the div you want to open as a modal is in your parent window, you could replace $('#div-modal') with $(window.parent.document).find('#div-modal')

  • Could you tell me what is "div-modal" mention above?Could you show this with an example because I am not clear with the solution mentioned

  • It will be the MAIN DIV's ID of the modal dialog. It is not related to SharePoint modal popup but it will get that ID of your modal dialog & show it to your parent page outside the iframe.

For me i Use this Method to display the pop-up of the Edit Form for eg.

function EditRecordFromList(id) {

    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/Lists/CA/EditForm.aspx?ID=" + id,
    title: "My Pop Up Title",
    allowMaximize: true,
    showClose: true,
    dialogReturnValueCallback: refreshCallback

function refreshCallback(dialogResult, returnValue) {
