Creating Multiple Modals on a Single Page

I'm having some issues creating multiple modals on a single webpage following the sample code from w3schools.com. The code in question that I am using is this one: http://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_css_modal2

I found a similar topic on the problem however after trying that solution in jsfiddle I still came up with no result, does anyone have any ideas?

<h2>1st Modal</h2>

<!-- Trigger/Open The Modal -->
<button id="myBtn">Open Modal</button>

<!-- The Modal -->
<div id="myModal" class="modal">

<!-- Modal content -->
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<span class="close">×</span>
<h2>Modal Header</h2>
</div>
<div class="modal-body">
<p>Some text in the Modal Body</p>
<p>Some other text...</p>
</div>
<div class="modal-footer">
<h3>Modal Footer</h3>
</div>
</div>
</div>

<h2>2nd Modal</h2>

<!-- Trigger/Open The Modal -->
<button id="myBtn">Open Modal</button>

<!-- The Modal -->
<div id="myModal" class="modal">

<!-- Modal content -->
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<span class="close">×</span>
<h2>Modal Header</h2>
</div>
<div class="modal-body">
<p>Some text in the Modal Body</p>
<p>Some other text...</p>
</div>
<div class="modal-footer">
<h3>Modal Footer</h3>
</div>





Script:

// Get the modal
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() {
modal.style.display = "block";
}

// When the user clicks on <span> (x), close the modal
span.onclick = function() {
modal.style.display = "none";
}

// When the user clicks anywhere outside of the modal, close it
window.onclick = function(event) {
if (event.target == modal) {
modal.style.display = "none";
}
}

Answer

On your JSFiddle, make sure you use class="myBtn" instead of id="myBtn" then it should work.

Here is the full working code:

HTML:

<h2>1st Modal</h2>

<!-- Trigger/Open The Modal -->
<button class="myBtn">Open Modal</button>

<!-- The Modal -->
<div id="myModal" class="modal">

  <!-- Modal content -->
  <div class="modal-content">
    <div class="modal-header">
      <span class="close">×</span>
      <h2>Modal Header</h2>
    </div>
    <div class="modal-body">
      <p>Some text in the Modal Body</p>
      <p>Some other text...</p>
    </div>
    <div class="modal-footer">
      <h3>Modal Footer</h3>
    </div>
  </div>

</div>

<h2>2nd Modal</h2>

<!-- Trigger/Open The Modal -->
<button class="myBtn">Open Modal</button>

<!-- The Modal -->
<div id="myModal2" class="modal">

  <!-- Modal content -->
  <div class="modal2-content">
    <div class="modal-header">
      <span class="close">×</span>
      <h2>Modal Header</h2>
    </div>
    <div class="modal-body">
      <p>Some text in the Modal Body</p>
      <p>Some other text...</p>
    </div>
    <div class="modal-footer">
      <h3>Modal Footer</h3>
    </div>
  </div>

</div>

JS:

// Get the modal
var modal = document.getElementsByClassName('modal');

// Get the button that opens the modal
var btn = document.getElementsByClassName("myBtn");


// Get the <span> element that closes the modal
var span = document.getElementsByClassName("close");

// When the user clicks the button, open the modal 
btn[0].onclick = function() {
    modal[0].style.display = "block";
}

btn[1].onclick = function() {
    modal[1].style.display = "block";
}
// When the user clicks on <span> (x), close the modal
span[0].onclick = function() {
    modal[0].style.display = "none";
}

span[1].onclick = function() {
    modal[1].style.display = "none";
}
// When the user clicks anywhere outside of the modal, close it
window.onclick = function(event) {
    if (event.target == modal) {
        modal.style.display = "none";
    }
}
