Can I pass a Class, ID or data-attribute to a DNN Modal using dnnModal.show

    I'm using the following to open a URL in a dnnModal. I'll be showing a consent checkbox on the modal and I need to disable the close button or hide it with CSS.

    If I use CSS currently it will hide the close button for all dnnModals which I don't want.

    I'd like to pass a custom Class ,ID or data-attribute to the modal if possible. Alternatively, if dnn has a built-in parameter to not show the close button that would be ideal.

    return false;

      There's a couple of possible approaches I can see here. Looking at the source code, it seems the dnnModal always has an ID of #iPopUp. So, you could target it with script immediately after it's opened, e.g.

      return false;

      That would add class="foo" to the modal.

      Another possibility would be to use a completely different modal script, instead of the built-in one. For instance I've worked on sites which have a theme based on Bootstrap. With those I've been able to use the Bootstrap modal and customise it to my heart's content.

      (note the link is to the Bootstrap 4 documents - Bootstrap 3's modal works slightly differently)
