Callouts in SharePoint 2013 Preview

While ModalDialog is not default for editing list items in SharePoint 2013 Preview, there is a new “popup” element in SharePoint – callout or popover. I would like to recommend these two blogs when you want discover more:

Andrey Markeev: Callouts (popovers) в SharePoint 2013 Preview (in Russian)

Alex Boev: a three part series:

1. Custom Callouts in the SharePoint 2013 Metro UI: Part 1: Basics
2. Custom Callouts in the SharePoint 2013 Metro UI, Part 2: Actions
3. Custom Callouts in the SharePoint 2013 Metro UI, Part 3: CalloutManager

To get introduced with callouts in SharePoint 2013, you can run this code (from Andrey Markeev’s blog):

myCustomCallout = calloutManager.createNewIfNecessary({
    ID: 'myCallout1',
    title: 'Hello world!',
    content: 'Please, click here.',
    launchPoint: $get('ctl00_DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea')

Which will result in:

    Hi! When something is undefined like m$, then the callout.js has not been loaded correctly, or some parameter is missing. Post some code example in a comment and I’ll see if I can help you. Cheers.

    I read your article but when I tried to implement it in my environment in App Part it is giving me error.
    “‘IsElementRtl’ is undefined”
    can you help me in fixing this.

      Hi, Ritesh! I haven’t tested it in an App Part. I suppose, some js references are not loaded. Try to figure out what references are missing. You can even ask a question in SharePoint Stackexchange where many experts can give a good answer.

    Thanks Anatoly for Reply,
    I have used following JS references in my app part.

    I have already posted this issue in Microsoft Technet and I will also post same in Stack Exchange.
