Hi -

I am looking for a modal DIV that will pop-up and be scrollable... I see these all over the web but could not find a single decent one on searching for it :( Nothing on dynamic drive.

Ideally I'd like for one that is super-light weight.

I did find a bunch of dialog box scripts but none that is simple light weight & clean :( So if you have a good one of those, I'd appreciate that too. (For now I have written a simple one of my own that does the job, and I am using it).

Best regards,

Those are typically referred to as a "lightbox script." Searches for that, plus the specific features you are looking for should turn up some good options.

HTH :)

jquery also has ui extensions including a modal dialog that is scrollable. I believe the minimized version of base plus all extensions is around 188KB.
