1. What does the module do?

  • It dims the current view and puts a modal dialogue over it.

2. When should the module be used?

  • When the user’s attention is required.
  • When information/input is required from the user.
  • When related content is to be displayed.
  • When additional content is to be displayed.
  • The module is not suitable for error messages, warnings or similar notifications.

3. Rules

  • The user must always have the option of closing the modal dialogue.
  • Any modal dialogue consists of a header (close icon and title) and content.
  • The content must contain at least an interaction element (e.g. ‘save’ or ‘OK’).
  • The modal dialogue cannot be used for error messages.
  • The width and height of the dialogue is determined by the size of the content.
  • A minimum space from the screen edge must be kept.
  • The modal dialogue is closed if the dimmed section is clicked on.
  • If the content is too big, a full-screen modal dialogue can be selected: see page types.
