Reset bootstrap modal

So, I am using bootstrap's modal.

I want to make a wizard style modal and came up with the following solution:

div snippets:

<div class="modal-instance hide fade" id="step1"> <div id="stepa"> ... </div> </div> <div id="stepb" style="display: none;"> ... </div>

Upon pressing a button in step-a step-b is loaded.

javascript snippet:

$("#stepa").replaceWith($('#stepb')); document.getElementById('stepb').style.display = 'block';

This works ok.

But when I dismiss the modal. The div stepa has still been replaced by stepb. My solution was to build a replacement back to stepa when the modal is hidden:

$("#myModal").on("hidden", function() { //replace the child });

I tried:

$('#step1').children().remove(); $('#step1').append($('#stepa'));



But I am having a hardtime selecting step-a as a replacement div, probably due to it not being a separate div. My question is, is this the right approach for a wizard styled modal or should I take another approach?


It's much simpler just to hide the previous and next steps, instead of copying them.

<button type="button" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#myModal">Launch modal</button> <div id="myModal" class="modal hide fade" data-step="1"> <div class="step step1"> <h1>Step 1</h1> <button class="btn next">Next</button> </div> <div class="step step2"> <h1>Step 2</h1> <button class="btn previous">Previous</button> <button class="btn next">Next</button> </div> <div class="step step3"> <h1>Step 3</h1> <button class="btn previous">Previous</button> <button class="btn done" data-dismiss="modal">Done</button> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> #myModal > .step { display: none; }​ </style> <script type="text/javascript"> $(function() { showStep(parseInt($('#myModal').data('step')) || 1); $('#myModal .next').on('click', function () { showStep(parseInt($('#myModal').data('step')) + 1); }); $('#myModal .previous').on('click', function () { showStep(parseInt($('#myModal').data('step')) - 1); }); $('#myModal').on('hidden', function() { showStep(1); }); function showStep(step) { $('#myModal').data('step', step); $('#myModal > .step').hide(); $('#myModal > .step' + step).show(); } });​ </script>
