closeOnEscape option if set to true and the current dialog box is focused will close the dialog on pressing Escape key(esc). By default, value is true.

Syntax:

$( ".selector" ).dialog({
    closeOnEscape : true
});

Approach: First, add jQuery UI scripts needed for your project.

<link href = “https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/themes/ui-lightness/jquery-ui.css” rel = “stylesheet”>
<script src = “https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js”></script>
<script src = “https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/jquery-ui.js”></script>

HTML




<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link href=
        rel="stylesheet">
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
    <script src=
    </script>
  
    <script>
        $(function () {
            $("#gfg").dialog({
                closeOnEscape: true,
            });
            $("#geeks").click(function () {
                $("#gfg").dialog("open");
