I looked at some of the examples in here and I am still a bit confused. Can someone please provide a simple example of how to bring up another window like a modal popup.
What CSS framework are you using (if any?)
Whatever comes out of the box with cake 3
CakePHP is a PHP framework, not a CSS framework.
CakePHP only does server stuff and not client-side stuff.
I’d highly recommend looking into something like Bulma, Bootstrap or Materialize.
Do you have any examples doing it with Bootstrap?
Just check their docs
Sorry I am a total newb on this so where do I put the components within the cake framework? so when I click a button in my edit view it should bring up a dialog so do I create some sorta of layout for this? How do i call the layout on the button click?
then on the page you want to display it, add the example code I showed you in the BS4 docs.
