[Sample] How to create and use Modal in an Adaptive Form


Employee Advisor

A modal is a dialog box/popup window that is displayed on top of the current page. You can use it to display additional information related to your form or even the field. One such use case that a person asked me was to show rules to fill the form in the dialog.


Let's Begin


Place the below Script on form initialize

var modal = document.getElementById('myModal');

// Get the button that opens the modal

var btn = document.getElementById("myBtn");

// Get the <span> element that closes the modal

var span = document.getElementsByClassName("close")[0];

// When the user clicks the button, open the modal

btn.onclick = function() { = "block";


// When the user clicks on <span> (x), close the modal

span.onclick = function() { = "none";


// When the user clicks anywhere outside of the modal, close it

window.onclick = function(event) {

    if ( == modal) { = "none";




Place the below CSS in your clientlibs, we basically need the CSS to be loaded along with the form. If you are not using clientLibs, place it in your theme CSS.

.modal-content {

    position: relative;

    background-color: #fefefe;

    margin: auto;

    padding: 0;

    border: 1px solid #888;

    width: 80%;

    box-shadow: 0 4px 8px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.2),0 6px 20px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.19);

    -webkit-animation-name: animatetop;

    -webkit-animation-duration: 0.4s;

    animation-name: animatetop;

    animation-duration: 0.4s


/* Add Animation */

@-webkit-keyframes animatetop {

    from {top:-300px; opacity:0}

    to {top:0; opacity:1}


@keyframes animatetop {

    from {top:-300px; opacity:0}

    to {top:0; opacity:1}


/* The Close Button */

.close {

    color: white;

    float: right;

    font-size: 28px;

    font-weight: bold;



.close:focus {

    color: #000;

    text-decoration: none;

    cursor: pointer;


.modal-header {

    padding: 2px 16px;

    background-color: #5cb85c;

    color: white;


.modal-body {padding: 2px 16px;}

.modal-footer {

    padding: 2px 16px;

    background-color: #5cb85c;

    color: white;

    text-align: left;



Code to be placed on Static Text field: Source Edit

On how to work with Static text: source edit please refer my other post [Sample] Embedding a pdf or a Video in an Adaptive form )

<h2>Sample Modal</h2>

<div class="modal-body"><p>It's place where you can enter your text</p>

<p>Some more text...</p>

<p>&amp; some more..</p>


<div class="modal-footer"><h3>Modal Footer</h3>

Hi Mayank,

How can we show a modal on submitting a form?

Can you put create a package for whole code source and put somewhere we can download? I understand the HTML part, just don't understand how to put with with adaptive form. Adaptive form only deal with AEM defined components, how to relate the AEM forms component with HTML elements?
