#28095 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wpLink modal no longer triggers open event

Severity: normal Version: 3.9

With the move away from wpdialog in WP 3.9, the wpLink modal no longer triggers an 'open' event.

I was using that event in a plugin to allow users to automatically search using text that was selected in the editor (a similar feature was proposed and reverted in #16276).

Without the event, it's not possible to reliably determine when the wpLink modal is opened in order to interact with it. The attached patch adds a new event to maintain similar functionality with previous versions.

Any chance I can get someone to take a look at this for 4.0?

Sounds good. Maybe better if the event is fired on the document or fire triggerHandler (no propagation) on the wrapper?

open: function( editorId ) {
$( document ).trigger( 'wplink-open', inputs.wrap );

close: function() {
$( document ).trigger( 'wplink-close', inputs.wrap );

Good idea on not sending a generic event up the DOM. Here's a revised patch based on your suggestion.
