Jquery – Disallow Twitter Bootstrap modal window from closing

jquerymodal-dialogmouseclick-eventtwitter-bootstrap

I am creating a modal window using Twitter Bootstrap. The default behavior is if you click outside the modal area, the modal will automatically close. I would like to disable that — i.e. not close the modal window when clicking outside the modal.

Can someone share jQuery code to do this?

Best Solution

I believe you want to set the backdrop value to static. If you want to avoid the window to close when using the Esc key, you have to set another value.

Example:

<a data-controls-modal="your_div_id"
   data-backdrop="static"
   data-keyboard="false"
   href="#">

OR if you are using JavaScript:

$('#myModal').modal({
  backdrop: 'static',
  keyboard: false
});
