Developing a mobile web page where user has to see info about a particular product via a link in the page . Let say 'See More...' . This CTA opens up a modal dialog (lightbox/overlay... take your pick) .
User can see the detailed info and dismiss the lightbox, but there is a possibility that there might be a 'T&C' link in the content , which in turn opens another modal dialog
The new overlay completely hides the older one though.
I feel this is kind of odd and does not make any sense throwing a modal from another modal. But throughout the application we are using modal for such links , hence the predicament.
i am considering moving the T&C action to open up in a new tab.
- Is this method of Stacking Modal dialogs user friendly?
- User now has to close two overlays to get back to the main app or would it be better if the close(X) on any modal brings him back to the application?
- A more elegant solution if there is any.
