  • Not that I am aware of.  The form is modal based on how it is called, not based on anything special about the form itself.

  • Go to the List Settings for the list and the last item in the Advanced Settings is "Launch forms in a dialog?".  Setting this to Yes will make the New and Edit forms for the list open as a modal dialog.

  • thank you Paul but, by this way new and edit forms becomes modal too.

    I just want that only, the add new item should be modal.

  • There is no way out of the box to only switch the New Forms to Modal.  Its either both or neither.
