How To Disallow Twitter Bootstrap Modal Window From Closing

I am creating a modal window using Twitter Bootstrap. The default behavior is if you click outside the modal area, the modal will automatically close. I would like to disable that -- i.e. not close the modal window when clicking outside the modal.

Can someone share jQuery code to do this?

you want to set the backdrop value to static. If you want to avoid the window to close when using the Esc key, you have to set another value.

Example:

<a data-controls-modal="your_div_id"
   data-backdrop="static"
   data-keyboard="false"
   href="#">
OR if you are using JavaScript:

$('#myModal').modal({
  backdrop: 'static',
  keyboard: false
});

Just set the backdrop property to 'static'.

$('#myModal').modal({
  backdrop: 'static',
  keyboard: true
})
You may also want to set the keyboard property to false because that prevents the modal from being closed by pressing the Esc key on the keyboard.

$('#myModal').modal({
  backdrop: 'static',
  keyboard: false
})
myModal is the ID of the div that contains your modal content.

If you want to conditionally disable the backdrop click closing feature. You can use the following line to set the backdrop option to static during runtime.

Bootstrap v3.xx

jQuery('#MyModal').data('bs.modal').options.backdrop = 'static';
Bootstrap v2.xx

jQuery('#MyModal').data('modal').options.backdrop = 'static';
This will prevent an already instantiated model with backdrop option set to false (the default behavior), from closing.
