jQuery UI Dialog closeOnEscape Option
  • Last Updated : 12 Jan, 2021

closeOnEscape option if set to true and the current dialog box is focused will close the dialog on pressing Escape key(esc). By default, value is true.

    closeOnEscape : true
});

<link href = “https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/themes/ui-lightness/jquery-ui.css” rel = “stylesheet”>
<script src = “https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js”></script>
<script src = “https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/jquery-ui.js”></script>
