Notification Dialogs

The different IGForm dialog classes allow you to notify the user about ongoing events or prompt him for input. Another use case would be to block the user interface during long-running tasks (i.e. execution of server-side triggers).

You should use these dialogs instead of the native Javascript dialogs (e.g. alert, prompt, confirm), since the native dialogs block the script execution while they are open. GMSC 2013

IG.Busy (options)

a UI-blocking dialog for preventing user input during long-running server tasks (e.g. trigger execution) GMSC 2013



{Object} options the options for configuring the dialog. The default options are:

 var defaultOptions = {
     showIsLoading: true, //show preloader icon?
     message: "Please wait...", //dialog message
     title: "Form is currently busy" //dialog header


{Object} IG.Busy dialog object the class instance of the generated Busy dialog. Provides a close method to close the dialog.


Show a IG.Busy dialog while an AJAX request is performed and close it as soon as the request finishes or fails:

IG.url('Workflow/Index/').ajaxPost().always(function () {
