I have a problem with using EPi.CreateDialog, when i open the dialog up i get EPi is not defined 764 EPi.RemoveEventListener(this, "load", this.opener.EPiOpenedDialog._DialogLoad); and when i close my dialog from the default.aspx (using EPi.GetDialog().Close(...); i get EPi is not defined 853 EPi.RemoveEventListener(, "unload", this._OnOpenerUnload); In the dialog i have on page_load RegisterClientScriptFile(UriSupport.ResolveUrlFromUtilBySettings("javascript/episerverscriptmanager.js")); RegisterClientScriptFile(UriSupport.ResolveUrlFromUIBySettings("javascript/system.aspx")); RegisterClientScriptFile(UriSupport.ResolveUrlFromUIBySettings("javascript/system.js")); and on the property i have under CreateEditControls() EditButton = new Button(); EditButton.ID = Name + "Edit"; EditButton.Text = "..."; EditButton.CssClass = "epismallbutton"; EditButton.OnClientClick = "OpenPropertyDialog('" + ValueHiddenField.ClientID + "','" + ResponseTextBox.ClientID + "');"; Controls.Add(EditButton); if(!Page.ClientScript.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("jsscript")){ string js = @""; Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(typeof(String), "jsscript", js);

    There is an article (with code samples) regarding Modal Dialogs in EPiServer UI available here:

    that's one that i've followed, thought, it differs somewhat when you're building a property

    The problem was that i used Button instead of a HtmlInputButton. Now it works

    I'm creating a customproperty where I need to use a modal dialog. I have not been able to find an example of this, only the few lines Mikael gave here. If there is an example somewehere that someone could point me to, or if Mikael could be so kind as to present the code for his property that would be very much appreciated :)

    I used reflector to look at the Page property type editor control when creating my control used in this blog post (source included, so you can look at that one too):
