Now, it’s easier than ever. Just use jquery and the jquery.blockUI.js plugin. You may download the jquery.blockUI.js plugin here. Now, in a we page, add the following scripts in the head section:

   <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

   <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.blockUI.js">

</script>

You have now added the jquery library and the jquery.blockUI.js plugin in your web page. Lets create a button that when is pressed, a popup message is diplayed. Add the following input button in the body section:

<input type="button" value="press" id="press" />

and the following script in the head section:

<script type="text/javascript">
                $(document).ready(function() {
                    $('#press').click(function() {
                        $.growlUI(null, 'Sample message');
                    });
                });
</script>

The $.growlUI is the function need for diplaying the popup message. Now, open your web page, press the button and enjoy the result.
