SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog() does not work under SharePoint 2013

When migrating our Solutions2Share License Management Solution from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 the SharePoint Modal Dialog did not open.

SharePoint 2010 Example:

   1: function ShowServerInformation() {

   2:         var options = {

   3:             url: '/_admin/Solutions2Share/LicenseManagement/GeneralServerInformation.aspx',

   4:             tite: 'Server Information',

   5:             allowMaximize: false,

   6:             showClose: true,

   7:             width: 430,

   8:             height: 230

   9:         };

  10:

  11:         SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options);

  12:         return false;

  13:     }

It is very easy to fix this problem.

  1. Remove the Java Script reference.
    <script src=”/_layouts/sp.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>
    <script src=”/_layouts/SP.UI.Dialog.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>
  2. Add to the url variable “?IsDlg=1″`
  3. Replace the command SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog() with the new command SP.SOD.execute(‘sp.ui.dialog.js’, ‘SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog’, options);

With this few changes your solution will work correctly.

SharePoint 2013 Example:

   1: function ShowServerInformation(featureId) {

   2:       var options = {

   3:           url: '/_admin/Solutions2Share/LicenseManagement/ServerInformation.aspx?featureId=' + featureId + "&IsDlg=1",

   4:           title: 'Server Information',

   5:           allowMaximize: false,

   6:           showClose: true,

   7:           width: 430,

   8:           height: 230

   9:       };

  10:

  11:       SP.SOD.execute('sp.ui.dialog.js', 'SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog', options);

  12:

  13:       return false;

  14:   }
