Main function to call modals here

function displayPopup(modalObject: any, width, height, position) {
  var pageInput: Xrm.Navigation.PageInputHtmlWebResource = {
    pageType: "webresource",
    webresourceName: "vite_/viteapps/pages/modals.html",
    data: JSON.stringify(modalObject),
  };
  var navigationOptions: Xrm.Navigation.NavigationOptions = {
    target: 2, // 2 is for opening the page as a dialog.
    width: width, // default is px. can be specified in % as well. 400
    height: height, // default is px. can be specified in % as well. 500
    position: position, // Specify 1 to open the dialog in center; 2 to open the dialog on the side. Default is 1 (center). 1
    title: "Record activation modal", //change the title here, recommended to enter title here
  };
  Xrm.Navigation.navigateTo(pageInput, navigationOptions).then(
    function success(returnedValues) {
      console.log(returnedValues);
    },
    function error(e) {
      // Handle errors
    }
  );
}
