    I had a similar challenge to build, but with a button. I managed to succesfully build a popup like you want, but I'm not 100% sure if it works in your code, but it's definitely worth a try.


    In your component you need two extra div's:

    <div class="slds">
        <div aria-hidden="true" role="dialog" class="slds-modal slds-modal--prompt slds-fade-in-hide" aura:id="modaldialog">
            <div class="slds-modal__container">
                <div class="slds-modal__header slds-theme--info">
                    <button class="slds-button slds-button--icon-inverse slds-notify__close" onclick="{!c.hidePopup}">
                        <c:svg aria-hidden="false" class="slds-button__icon slds-button__icon--large" xlinkHref="/resource/SLDS105/assets/icons/action-sprite/svg/symbols.svg#close">
                        <span class="slds-assistive-text">Close</span>
                    <h2 class="slds-text-heading--medium">Your Title</h2>
                <div class="slds-modal__content slds-p-around--medium">

    This div is a hidden div (slds-fade-in-hide does that for you) which will display your form. The second div will display a dark background:

    <div class="slds-backdrop slds-backdrop--hide" aura:id="backdrop">


    I assume that you have a controller to render your form, and that this form is a different component. If not, you should consider building it, as it's really easy.

    Your helper class should look like this:

    function_name :  function(component, event, helper){
    //called on clicking your button
    //run your form render code after that, run the following lines
    helper.showPopupHelper(component, 'modaldialog', 'slds-fade-in-');

    You'll also need a function to drop the screen (on cancel for example) as you can see in my component example, I called it hidePopup, this is what's in it:

    helper.hidePopupHelper(component, 'modaldialog', 'slds-fade-in-');
    helper.hidePopupHelper(component, 'backdrop', 'slds-backdrop--');


    You'll need a couple of methods here:

    1. The method to call the form component, I assume you know how to do this. The only thing you have to do here is put that component in v.body like this component.set("{!v.body}", component);
    2. the showPopupHelper shows the correct popup

          showPopupHelper: function(component, componentId, className){
              var modal = component.find(componentId);
              $A.util.removeClass(modal, className + 'hide');
              $A.util.addClass(modal, className + 'open');
    3. the hidePopupHelper hides it when done and, because I use this popup for multiple components, it empties the body, so that next time you'll click it, you don't get the old body first.

          hidePopupHelper: function(component, componentId, className){
              var modal = component.find(componentId);
              $A.util.addClass(modal, className+'hide');
              $A.util.removeClass(modal, className+'open');
              component.set("v.body", "");

    I hope it's a bit clear for you, good luck!

    Thanks for the solution.. Exactly what i am looking for. And i have changed my existing component into your aproach and worked like a charm. thank you so much!

    Nice! I'm glad it worked :)

    What's the key to show that modal. I am open document page, copy code to my file, and don't know how to make it work. I just want to see a working example.

    Hey @Stiger, you can do that via a button which calls some javascript in your helper class, which assigns your component to v.body, and then call the helper.showPopupHelper, which I showed in my answer. Good luck!

    Thanks @Bagpiper001, I found it, it have to put inside `.slds` class. I miss that piece. Thanks
