How do I close an Inline Dialog from inside the callback function?

I have an InlineDialog that I declare like this:

var inlineDialog = AJS.InlineDialog(AJS.$(this), "dialog-" + appId, function(content, trigger, showPopup) {

                var self = this;

                content.html(Mustache.render(MUSTACHE_TEMPLATES['reset-spam-key-warning'], {}));


                // Act upon the delete button

                content.find(".actions .delete-button").click(function(event) {


                    console.log("Clicked delete.");






I want to write something so that I can close the dialog when the delete button is clicked. How do I make that happen? The problem is that I really don't have access to an inlineDialog close function from in there.

This widget could not be displayed.

here's how you cheat:

var inlineDialog;
var closer = function() {
    if (inlineDialog) {
inlineDialog = AJS.InlineDialog(..., ..., function(content, trigger, showPopup) {
    // ...
    content.find(...).click(function(e) {

Nice cheat. Works a charm. I was in the process of trying something similar.
