In order to trigger a box using the HTML Data attributes you will need the box's ID and access to your HTML code.
Where to find the Box ID?
Go to your Box Manager and look at the last column of the box list. This is your Box's ID.
- open (Show the popup)
- close (Close the popup)
- closeKeep (Close the popup and keep it hidden)
Triggering on Click
The syntax is pretty straightforward. Let's see some examples using Box #1.
Show Box using a button
<button data-ebox="1" data-ebox-cmd="open"> Open Popup </button>
Close Box using a div
<div data-ebox="1" data-ebox-cmd="close"> Close me! </div>
Close Box and Set Cookie Expiration
<button data-ebox="1" data-ebox-cmd="closeKeep"> Close me! </button>
Close Box and Follow Link URL
<a href="http://www.google.gr" data-ebox="1" data-ebox-cmd="close" data-ebox-prevent="0"> Close and Return to Google.gr </a>
Toggle Open/Close State
<a href="#" data-ebox="1"> Toggle Open/Close State </a>
The data-ebox attribute is optional for all elements within a box. Engage Box will try to discover the closest box automatically.
The following code implements a button that closes the box is placed in.
<button data-ebox-cmd="closeKeep"> Hide me! </button>
