Have you considered to use child-rows to show additional data? It's a great way to show additional information of each row when needed. Here an example:

I don't necessarily agree with @tohster when he says, "Avoid the stacked modal." There's nothing wrong with stacking modals. A great way to do so is just make sure it's the same size as the modal it's in front of that way you don't see the "stack." Look at my answer to his question on this exact topic: It could look something like this: ( it would ...

Avoid the stacked modal There isn't really a good way to use stacked modals. This modal+confirmation pattern occurs with site privacy and terms+conditions notices. A typical approach is to include a checkbox that must be affirmatively checked by users before they can submit the form/dismiss the dialog. [ ] I accept the terms

I think this is where a wizard or guided workflow will solve the problem, although I am generally not a fan of creating a workflow within a modal window. However, this was/is a standard pattern for installing of desktop software for a long time, and you can build in optional/conditional workflow into the steps by accepting additional input from the user. ...

Apps handle this situation all the time, and you're correct pop-up/modal confirmations are not usually a good option. Here's an example: A sales representative opens up a modal in order to delete a contact, a vendor, or whatever. On selecting submit a div is revealed asking "Are You Sure?" When the rep presses yes the delete goes through. If the ...

The one place that I have seen this approach was in an tablet application designed for shop staff to place orders on behalf of a customer. In that context, the order details including a list of items added and the total value was given prominence and displayed all the time. The sales assistant could then browse/search for products through a panel that opened ...

Modal boxes are helpful for quick tasks or small notices where it is too cumbersome to load a new screen, and the user will want to return to the main screen after processing the modal. It's sometimes okay for modals to overflow a window (see pinterest for example). The form you are describing seems like the opposite of this situation: It has a lot of ...

1. Is it OK to resize the dialog to accommodate changed content? Yes it is nowadays, providing it doesn't cause the window to scroll offscreen. There are lots of ways to do validation notices, but the approach you've chosen (notify below the field, red, left-aligned) is a very well tested and classic approach so it's a safe choice. The main downside to ...
