A widget component for Yii Framework 2.0 to easily configure and initialize popup notification dialog boxes. It provides a polyfill for the native javascript alert, confirm, and prompt dialog boxes. It includes inbuilt support for rendering rich dialog boxes via bootstrap3-dialog which makes using Bootstrap's modal more monkey-friendly. The key features provided by the library are:

  • Control how you want to render JAVASCRIPT dialogs. Inbuilt quick support for following dialog types:
    • ALERT dialog
    • CONFIRM dialog
    • PROMPT dialog
    • CUSTOM dialog
  • Includes a jQuery plugin krajeeDialog (created by Krajee), that allows one to configure the bootstrap3-dialog library easily, or use the native JS alerting component, OR also configure any third party JS Notification Library to be used.
  • Advanced configuration via kartik\dialog\Dialog widget. This widget allows one to globally setup the native JS alert OR bootstrap3-dialog settings.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.


Note: Check the composer.json for this extension's requirements and dependencies. You must set the minimum-stability to dev in the composer.json file in your application root folder before installation of this extension OR if your minimum-stability is set to any other value other than dev, then set the following in the require section of your composer.json file

kartik-v/yii2-dialog: "@dev"

Read this web tip /wiki on setting the minimum-stability settings for your application's composer.json.


Either run

$ php composer.phar require kartik-v/yii2-dialog "@dev"

or add

"kartik-v/yii2-dialog": "@dev"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Documentation and Demo

View the documentation and demos at Krajee Yii 2 Demos for details on using the extension.


Basic Usage

In your view you can load the asset bundle and render the javascript to load the bootstrap 3 modal dialog.

// view.php
use kartik\dialog\DialogAsset;
$this->registerJs("\$('#your-btn-id').on('click', function(){BootstrapDialog.alert('I want banana!');});");

Advanced Usage (Widget)

In your view OR view layout file, you can render the widget like this. This will not display any content directly - but will render all the javascript and css needed for initializing the BootstrapDialog as per your customized settings.

use kartik\dialog\Dialog;

// Example 1
echo Dialog::widget([
   'libName' => 'krajeeDialog',
   'options' => [], // default options

// Example 2
echo Dialog::widget([
   'libName' => 'krajeeDialogCust',
   'options' => ['draggable' => true, 'closable' => true], // custom options

Then in your view, you can write your own javascript to render your alert, confirm, and prompt boxes (or a custom dialog box). For example on click of HTML buttons btn-1 and btn-2, the dialogs can be popped up as shown below:

// NOTE: This is a javascript code and must be run in Yii via 'registerJs' 
//       or via a JS File in an AssetBundle

// use krajeeDialog object instance initialized by the widget
$('#btn-1').on('click', function() {
    krajeeDialog.alert('An alert');
    // or show a confirm
    krajeeDialog.confirm('Are you sure', function(out){
        if(out) {
            alert('Yes'); // or do something on confirmation

// use krajeeDialogCust object instance
$('#btn-2').on('click', function() {
    krajeeDialogCust.alert('An alert');
    // or show a prompt
    krajeeDialogCust.prompt({label:'Provide reason', placeholder:'Upto 30 characters...'}, function(out){
        if (out) {
            alert('Yes'); // or do something based on the value of out
