See more: Javascript HTML Ajax jQuery dialog , +

I'm currently working on a small project that makes use of JQuery and JQuery UI. I want to make a dialog that edits certain data in a table. The user double click on a row and the dialog popsup. This all works perfectly but when i click on a <a> tagged link and go back to the page the dialog behaves strange. The $.val("") wont work anymore and neither can i append html tags or set text by innerHTML.

The <a> tag executes $.load() which will load the page on click.

I tried loads of things to fix the issue but nothing works so far...
I'm making use of JQuery 1.7.2 and JQuery UI 1.8.22.

Below are a few examples of my code in the last block it goes wrong at the button test, after the page is reloaded by the <a> tag.

So far i tried to:
* Empty the page container.
* Reload scripts on click.
* Destroy the dialog and recreate it.

Code to load a page:
function LoadPage(pageName) {

Code to show the dialog and change text:
        autoOpen: false,
        modal: true,
        buttons: [
            text: "test",
            click: function() {
                var td = $("#edit_mod_uid");
                var textDiv = document.createElement("div");
                textDiv.setAttribute("id", "edit_mod_uid_div");
                textDiv.innerHTML = CurrentSelectedID;
                       text: "Wijzigigen",
                       click: function () {
                       text: "Verwijderen",
                       click: function () {
                       text: "Annuleren",
                       click: function () {
        open: function () {
        close: function () {

This issue may be marked as fixed.

Currently i found out that the dialogs gets added continuesly at the end of the document between the <body></body> and . By executing the command $("#dialog").remove() the issue is fixed.

This is mainly happening in combination with ajax it seems.

A ticket about the issue:

Also it seems that $("#dialog").dialogs("destroy"); has no effect on the dialog.
