Initialize modal outside of the scheduler


#1

Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to trigger the popup modal/lightbox on a button click that’s outside of scheduler itself/in a different component?

Hello @sbanas ,
Yes, you can do this. In order to open the lightbox for some event, you should call the showLightbox(id) method on the external button/component click. Where the id is the id of the required event.

Here is the live demo:

This works, thank you! I had to move it to the header in my application.
