Type: Object Method

Description: Opens a dialog plugin.


editor.openDialogPluginstring pluginint widthint height [, string features [, string modal]] );


The name of the plugin to open. If you wish to pass parameters or an action to the plugin then these should follow as through the entire string could be placed within a query string after the ?. e.g. "myPlugin&action=choose¶m1=value1¶m2=value2"

Width should be set to the width of the dialog

should be set to the height of the dialog.

This optional parameter should be a string of any extra features you want enabled, such as status bars and scroll bars. This string should follow the same format as the features parameter in the JavaScript method.  

Should be set to either 'modal' or 'modeless'. This parameter will unfortunately only have effect in Internet Explorer. When set to 'modal' the dialog will float above the application and the user will not be able to click back to the application until they close the dialog window. If set to 'modeless' the user will be able to click back onto the application. Unfortunately in Mozilla the dialog will always behave in 'modeless' mode.
