HTML Question

Open Modal (bootstrap) from other html-file

I'm building a website using

bootstrap
. But i'm come to somewhat of an dead-end. i've created a modal from an given example (see below). As you might see, this is a modal taken straight from their website.

<div class="modal fade" id="myModal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
<div class="modal-dialog">
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
<h4 class="modal-title" id="myModalLabel">Nieuwe Taak toevoegen</h4>
</div>
<div class="modal-body">
...
</div>
<div class="modal-footer">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Save changes</button>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>


I open this dialog using a button.

<button type="button" class="btn btn-default btn-sm" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#myModal" >


But i want to keep my modals in seperate
aspx/html-files
. How can i open these modals when they are kept inside different
html/aspx - files
?

example:
if the button is inside
index.Html
but the modal is inside
newTaskModal.html
, how would i open the modal? (If both are inside index.html, then there are no problems)

Note: I don't/can't use HTML5 (company-standards)

Answer

if you're using jquery, you could download the page using an ajax call:

$.ajax({
  url: 'newTaskModal.html',
  dataType: 'text',
  success: function(data) {
    alert(data);
    // todo:  add the html to the dom...
  }
});

If you're building a single page application you might want to check out a framework designed to solve this type of problem: durandal
