The return event from the jQuery in IE works and returns text ( that was typed in by the user. I need this to work in all browsers...of course Can someone show me how to get this to work in all browsers, so I know what the user typed in and can save it. I'm using ASP.Net and trying to save the information server side is the reason I put the returned text into a hiddenBasicInformationComments textbox (which is set to run at server). If anyone sees a better way to do what I want, please don't hesitate to let me know.

             autoOpen: false,
             show: "blind",
             width: 500,
             height: 480,
             draggable: false,
             position: 'center',
             modal: true,
             close: function (event, ui) {
                 $(".hiddenBasicInformationComments").val(;  // returns null for Firefox
             open: function (type, data) {
