    <div class="modal-dialog">
        <!-- modal-content -->    
        <div class="modal-content">
            <!-- modal-header -->
            <div class="modal-header">
                <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"><span aria-hidden="true">×</span></button>
                <h4 class="modal-title">Modal title</h4>

                <p>One fine body…</p>
            <!-- end modal-body -->

            <div class="modal-footer">
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Save changes</button>

The attribute role="dialog" improves accessibility for people using screen readers.

You can change the size of the modal by adding additional class into modal-dialog class div.

  • modal-sm - for small modals
  • modal-lg - for large modals

.3 If you browse, Cannot see it yet. Need event or something to pop-up.

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#myModal">Popup Modal</button>
 <!-- /.or -->
<a href="#myModal" data-toggle="modal"><span aria-hidden="true" class="glyphicon glyphicon-comment"></span> Modal</a>

Now you can see, button tags use data-target attribute and also anchor tags use href attribute to point The #myModal id witch is modal div container and trigger to popup on it's click events.

Button (<button>) and anchor (<a>) tags have data-toggle="modal" attribute. It's mined opens the modal window.
