I have an MVC 5 application with two modal windows. The first one called SelectChurchModal opens up a modal with a partial view allowing the user to make a selection. When the user selects a church, I want to close that modal and open up another modal to create an invoice called AddNewInvoiceModal. My problem is that when I close the first modal when the user clicks on a table row, the modal exits the other one doesn't show. I just get the dark overlay with no modal window and no data. If I just open the AddNewInvoiceModal window on top of the SelectChurchModal it works fine. Is there any way for me to successfully close the first modal before opening the second one? I've use $('AddNewInvoiceModal').modal('hide'); but when I use $('AddNewInvoiceModal').modal('show'); I just get a dark background with nothing. Both controller methods AddNewInvoice() and SelectChurch() both return partial views.


Please excuse the inline css. This is just temporary while I'm testing my code. I need to make SelectChurchModal close before the AddNewInvoiceModal opens. Maybe I made a trivial mistake in my code?

What I have tried:

Here is my regular Invoice View:
HTML
@model Church_Musician_Administration_App__Updated_.Models.InvoicesModel
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Invoices";
}
<style>
    .highlight {
        background-color: darkviolet !important;
        color: white;
    }

    .table-striped tbody tr:nth-of-type(odd) {
        background-color: rgb(222, 178, 241);
    }

    .table-striped tbody tr:nth-of-type(even) {
        background-color: rgb(233, 204, 246);
    }

    #invoices {
        font-family: "Arial";
        padding-left: 10px;
        padding-right: 10px;
    }
    
   
</style>

Except for malware, there is no such thing as a "modal" dialog in a (stateless) web app. You need to rethink your use case.

(Your "church" is just a party to an invoice; not some kind of "parent" entity in this case).

1 solution

You probably need to wait for the first dialog to close before opening the second:
JavaScript
success: function (response) {
    $("#invoiceModalBodyDiv").html(response);
    
    $("#SelectChurchModal").one("hidden.bs.modal", function(){
        $('#AddNewInvoiceModal').modal({ backdrop: 'static' });
        $("#AddNewInvoiceModal").modal("show");
    }); 
    
    $("#SelectChurchModal").modal("hide");
}
