FAQ

How do I point multiple elements to the same modal?

To trigger the same modal, you need to add the data-modal-target attribute to a element, and then point it to the same id. For example

<button
  class="bx--btn bx-btn--primary"
  type="button"
  data-modal-target="#modal"
>
  A button
</button>
<button
  class="bx--btn bx-btn--secondary"
  type="button"
  data-modal-target="#modal"
>
  Another button
</button>

Both these buttons would trigger the modal with the id of modal.
