Remove modal property from Bootstrap modal window

How can you manipulate the modal dialog for bootstrap not to show it as modal window without the gray overlay.

<!-- Modal -->
<div class="modal fade" id="myModal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel">
<div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"><span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span></button>
<h4 class="modal-title" id="myModalLabel">Modal title</h4>
<div class="modal-body">
<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>


1) http://jsfiddle.net/ringstaff/Gbm89/14/ has a working example. All you have to do is add this line of css

.modal-backdrop {background: none;}

2) After modal initiation


just trigger the code below


3) add data-backdrop="false" to and Bootstrap will do the rest.

Example:<div class="modal" id="genericModal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true" data-backdrop="false">
