Sadly, yes. Last time I tried using showModalDialog it worked in Chrome, but the same way window.open works - the window was not modal. It won't work in Opera as well, so the only thing that comes to mind is using Jquery UI's Dialog.

I found Google has (had) some issues with the showModalDialog. You can follow the status of the problem right here[^].
 
Good luck!

Hi,
 
window.showModalDialog() is not working properly on Google Chrome, this is why you have 3 options here:
1) Put onblur="this.focus()" in the body element of the target page and put a div which will prevent user from clicking on the opener page
2) Use Modal Dialog from jQuery, I have implemented a jQuery function which will give you the possibility to pass arguments to the target page, to close the dialog using window.close() and to return retunrValue
My Article: http://extremedev.blogspot.com/2011/03/windowshowmodaldialog-cross-browser-new.html[^]
3) Do not use Chrome, which I think that is not the best solution.
 
Good luck!

Hi,
 
You are right window.showModalDialog() doesn't work with the latest updated version of Google Chrome, i too faced this problem in my project.
 
You can have a number of solutions for that :-
 
1. The easiest one is window.open();

Pros:- Easy to handle and use.
Cons:- You can still work on the parent page while the pop-up window is opened.
 
2. The Efficient solution is to use jQuery dialog control.
For better understanding of jQuery dialog control you can refer the
link "http://jqueryui.com/dialog/[^]"
 

Thanks.
