My custom dialog page uses dialog.master as master page. It shows a Cancel button at the bottom right of the dialog box, which closes the dialog instantly.

Since I implemented my own cancel button which does some stuff in the OnClick event, I do not need the default one. How can I get rid of it?

There is a property in Dialog options

showClose boolean (true/false) Determines the visibility of the close button (at top right corner) for the modal dialog

To use it:

var options = { 
url: '/SitePages/Page.aspx', 
title: 'Page Title', 
allowMaximize: false, 
showClose: false, 
width: 800, 
height: 600, 
dialogReturnValueCallback: CloseCallback }; 


SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options) Method

  • The "Close" Button is not the "Cancel" button I'm talking of
