I want to have modal window to open html page. I have created the html pages and exported and place in a folder.
I have removed the picture box leaving row & column.
I have tried several things and seems nothing works on loading the html page.
Do I need to add a container (what type) or add subgrid. If so what do I do next
Merry Christmas to all

Hi Larry,
I don't know if Foundation has any built in modals but you could use another library to include one.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

As there is a modal component in Foundation I think this is an advanced function.
Read http://foundation.zurb.com/sites/docs/v … eveal.html
Hope this helps...

Thanks for finding that. I didn't have time to look but I figured there would be one.

Using the component Modal window in FF I need to know how to get it to pull in a html page located in another folder. ZURB displays a bunch of code. What do you do with that?

Seems a bit strange to want a page thats in a folder on your site to come up as a modal window on a different page (assuming same site)

I would guess (never done it before though) that you would place an html element into the modal container, same as you would do with a normal container, that does mean however that the page wouldn't be in another folder, unless within the html element you put the code for an iframe to the page (again not sure thats possible though either)

Just tested it out it works no problem, just needs a little bit of fiddleing about with css and other essential files if it's not part of the same project, if its same project then works fine without

Here is my static web site that I am converting to be responsive. www.EZorbCalcium.com and in the middle panel "EZorb Resource Library" click on any of the book icons. They will open in a Modal Window and some with tabs for more than one page.
If that is what you have done tell me in detail how you did it.
Thanks Larry
Purpose of using modal window, my clients are elderly and most get lost clicking on links. By being able to see main page in background they feel more comfortable.
