Setup Ajax dialog

By calling dialog() function of jQuery UI.

The index.html has blank div tag whose id is "dialog.

The $( "#dialog" ).dialog() set the div tag as dialog part.

The script binds click function of the button whose id is "btndlg". When the button clicked, by calling $.ajax, access the url "/samples/dialog/innerdlg.html" and get html the url returns, and input the html into "#dialog" div tag.

Then the parameter for the inner dialog html is str01 and sel01. They are the value of the first form's input, these are text and combobox.

The "innerdlg.html" accessed, the parameter comes from the $.ajax, so put it as the default value of the form inputs in the dialog's form.
