May 14, 2021 . Admin

Hi Dev,

In This Tutorial, I will Explain you how to use open and show modal in Alpine Js using tailwind how to open a full screen modal window dialog clicking of a button and close it again with alpine JS and Tailwind css.

How we can establish a modal that can be used anywhere on your can also use this example in your php laravel alpine js project.

Now, We require to establish somewhere to instantiate our Alpine data, for this example we'll utilize a <div> but it could be any element that you wish as long as it wraps the whole content.

Inside of that, we require to integrate the basic structure of a modal. This will be the full-screen overlay background as well as the white box to contain the modal content itself.

Next, let's add a trigger so that we can open the modal. In this example, it's a button but it could also be any a

tag as well.

When we press the button, we will see the modal popup but we don't have any way to close it. Let's see important point.

  • integrate a @click.away event listener to the inner modal so that if we click outside of the white content it will additionally close.

Here, I will give you full example for simply display alpine js tailwind css modal as bellow.
