    JotForm as modal pop up and close jotform on submission feature enhancement request in lightbox.

    Asked by Hiral Patel  on July 21, 2014 at 04:56 PM

    Hi,

    I am in situation where I need to pop up jotform as a modal dialog box (Means once the jotform is shown, then webpage except the jotform should be unclickable) and after submission of jotform the modal dialog box should be closed by itself instead of showing thank you message and expecting user to click somewhere on the webpage.

    Note: Can you please assign this service request to Paul Simpson, because he knows the context about this request because of our previous communication in mail regarding the same.

    Thanks a lot,

    Hiral Patel.

    Hi Hiral,

    Can you give me a list of the improvements you need for our lightbox embed option.

    Is it just to have the lightbox close on a form submit?

    How about how/when the lightbox should open?

    Does our current lightbox modal act exactly as you require it to?

    I will begin working on the improvement once I have verified exactly what you require.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi Hiral,

    Just wanted to let you know a small modification has been made to the lightbox embed code. So that you can manually open the lightbox at time by calling the showForm function in the lightbox code. Here is how it works...

    Your embed code will look like this:

     

    You can manually open the lightbox by calling JFL_41748765682974.showForm()

    Regards
