I want to open a sharepoint page to be opened in a model popup with only close option. I should be able to adjust the size of the popup as well . And onclick of close ,the browser should be closed . I would like to do this using Content Editor WP and want to see the page with master page data and navigation.


You can add script in Content Editor WP, to open the page as dialog,

Load first SP.js and add following script

ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(function () {
     var dialogurl = "your url";
            var options = {
            url: dialogurl,
            width: 700,
            height: 700,
    dialogReturnValueCallback: OnDialogClose
            SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options);}, "sp.js");

When the user clicks the submit form, you would run the following line of JS:

 function OnDialogClose(dialogResult, returnValue)  {
     if (result == SP.UI.DialogResult.OK) {
         // to close
     } else {
        // logic 

other options to set for dialog follow the below link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff410058(v=office.14).aspx

  • As the user wants to close the Browser window, the window can only be closed if it was opened by JavaScript.. In order to achieve that window.open('', '_self', ''); window.close(); this should work.. – Arsalan Adam Khatri Apr 15 '14 at 6:11
