Modal Popup in Sharepoint by javascript

Most come requirement in Sharepoint custom developemt is to have a popup .This can be achieved by using the Modal PopUp .Below is the code script which gives us popup in sharepoint

<script type=”text/javascript”>

function OpenDialog(URL) {
     var options = SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions();
     options.url = URL;
     options.width = 600;
     options.height = 400;


<a href=”javascript:OpenDialog(‘URL of the page to be displayed here’)”>Link</a>

You can use this script in a .js file reference it anywhere in the sharepoint site and you should be able to call the function .


  1. Would this work with a Script Editor web part or does it need to be in a .js file? I tried using it in a web part but it didn't do anything, maybe I'm missing something?

    1. yes it will work in the script editor webpart too.
