            <DialogContent>
                <p>This is a Dialog</p>
            </DialogContent>
    
            <Position XValue="20px" YValue="20px" />
    
        </ej:Dialog>
    
        <ej:Dialog ID="seconddialog" Title="Window" Width="250" runat="server">
    
            <DialogContent>
                <p>This is a different Dialog</p>
            </DialogContent>
    
            <Position XValue="300px" YValue="20px" />
    
        </ej:Dialog>
    
        <ej:Dialog ID="thirdialog" Title="PopUp" Width="250" runat="server">
    
            <DialogContent>
                <p>This is an another Dialog</p>
            </DialogContent>
    
            <Position XValue="150px" YValue="150px" />
    
        </ej:Dialog>

            <DialogContent>
    
                <ej:Button ID="innerbutton" Text="Open Nested Dialog" Type="Button" ClientSideOnClick="openNestedDialog" runat="server"></ej:Button>
    
                <ej:Dialog ID="innerDialog" Title="Nested Dialog" ShowOnInit="false" Height="300px" Width="400px" runat="server">
    
                    <DialogContent>
                        <div>This is a nested Dialog</div>
                    </DialogContent>
    
                </ej:Dialog>
    
            </DialogContent>
    
        </ej:Dialog>

                $("#MainContent_outerDialog").ejDialog("open");
            }
            function openNestedDialog() {
                $("#MainContent_outerDialog_innerDialog").ejDialog("open");

                        </div>
                    </DialogContent>
            </ej:Dialog>
