jQuery Easy Confirm Dialog plugin

jQuery Easy Confirm Dialog is an easy to use confirm plugin module that acts as a built in, customizable confirm-function. It's only dependencies are jQuery and jQuery UI.

No need for manual callbacks, the default event will be put on hold and only executed if user confirms.

If there are any actions on the target these will be executed. If there are no actions but a URL present then the user will be redirected.

How to get started

$("#alert").click(function() {
	alert("You approved the action");
<a href="#" class="confirm" id="alert">Normal test</a>
<a href="?confirm=true" class="confirm">Normal test with a link</a>
<a href="?confirm=true" class="confirm" title="Are you sure you want to click on this link?">Normal test with a link</a>


By default all click events are handled, but you could use this plugin for any other event handled by jquery. You could bind to the form submit event with the following code.

        eventType: 'submit',

To set a custom min/max height, simply use

        minHeight : 100, // default 120
        maxHeight : 250 // default 250
