This change allows the dialog to work more like a standard dialog when the device screen is significantly larger than the dialog content.

When transitioning to a dialog, the class ui-dialog-background is added to the previous page so that it will remain visible if the background of ui-dialog is set to transparent rather than black.

The background page may also need data-dom-cache set to prevent it from being removed - there doesn't seem to be an easy way around that without significantly complicating the timer call that removes hidden pages.



please add!

Additional change unrelated to the original pull request - add swipeup/swipedown events and add a data parameter to the swipe event trigger so that multitouch gestures can be detected and handled differently if necessary.

Absolutely agree!!! Some users find it quite annoying (even angering) to be deprived of the context page view when a dialog shows up with empty background.

I'm now using a modified version of this which doesn't require modifying jquery mobile itself:



Why is this closed, is is available in a dev release?


Also wonder if this is implemented or not. I'm using 1.1.1 but can't find anything in the docs related to transparent dialogs...
