Modals

Basic Modal

Your basic modal has a variety of elements to it. .c-overlay will expand to fill the current space, more information on overlays is available.

The modal body it self consists of cards , providing you with a consistent way of building structured content. Please familiarise yourself with what is possible with cards to make full use of modals.

<div aria-hidden class="c-overlay c-overlay--visible"></div>
<div role="dialog" class="o-modal o-modal--visible">
  <div class="c-card">
    <header class="c-card__header">
      <button type="button" class="c-button c-button--close">&times;</button>
      <h2 class="c-heading">Modal heading</h2>
    </header>

    <div class="c-card__body">
      This is the modal body
    </div>

    <footer class="c-card__footer">
      <button type="button" class="c-button c-button--brand">Close</button>

Ghost Modal

This modal has no body, hence "ghost". Lol.

To make a ghost modal simply add the .o-modal--ghost modifier.

<div aria-hidden class="c-overlay c-overlay--visible"></div>
<div role="dialog" class="o-modal o-modal--ghost o-modal--visible">
  <div class="c-card">
    <header class="c-card__header">
      <button type="button" class="c-button c-button--close">&times;</button>
      <h2 class="c-heading">Modal heading</h2>
    </header>

    <div class="c-card__body">
      This is the modal body
    </div>

    <footer class="c-card__footer">
      <button type="button" class="c-button c-button--brand">Close</button>
    </footer>
  </div>
</div> 

Scrollable content

To make a scrollable modal add the .o-panel class to the modal body, and apply a fixed height so long content starts to scroll.

<div aria-hidden class="c-overlay c-overlay--visible"></div>
<div role="dialog" class="o-modal o-modal--visible">
  <div class="c-card">
    <header class="c-card__header">
      <button type="button" class="c-button c-button--close">&times;</button>
      <h2 class="c-heading">Modal heading</h2>
    </header>

    <div class="c-card__body o-panel" style="height:300px">
      Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated
      they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named
      Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which
      roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind
      texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum
      decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands
      of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed
      her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills
      of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline
      of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her
      cheek, then
