    How do u create a customize pop-up window with dark background?


    Hi. I've seen sites done this and I'm really curious how people do it. It will be great if someone knows what kind of technology or how they do it. If u know any resources, like books, that I can learn from then that will be great.

    Here's a sample from a site that has this kind of feature.

    http://www.humantimes.com/

    If u click on the login link then it will pop up a customized pop-up window and also the background becomes dark as well.

    Is that something hard to do too? I think this is done by javascript/ajax? Or maybe other things involved too?

    Any help will be great. Thanks.
