Dialog won't reopen if hide effect used on close?

Reported by: Stretch2m Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.8
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.7.1

It appears that using a hide effect on a dialog causes problems with reopening the dialog after having been closed.

My code:

$(function() {


title: "Employee Profile",

width: 608,

modal: true,

resizable: false,

hide: "puff",

autoOpen: false



function openProfile() {



I call openProfile when I want to display the dialog. When I close the dialog, it closes with the "puff" effect correctly.

However, with the code as shown, when I subsequently call openProfile to open the profile again, the screen dims (as it should with a modal dialog) but the dialog itself does not reappear.

If I remove the "hide: 'puff'" option, when I close the dialog and call openProfile(), the dialog reappears as expected.

Could it be that the "puff" effect leaves the dialog in an invisible state? If so, how would I restore the dialog to its original state following the puff effect?

This is a real bug, I hit the same thing. I am SO happy Stretch2m narrowed it down to the hide 'puff' functionality, I took that out, and it started working right away... I am using Firefox 3.5 (should not matter...) I will make a test case to post up here, then I will reopen the ticket.
