How can I override a custom button with an Ajax dialog box pop-up

 In the article management tab, the "new" button creates what looks like an AJAX/Jquery action that brings up a simple dialog box that lets you choose the article type and input a title. Here is a picture:


You're not positioning the dialog in any particular place; it's probably ending up somewhere near the bottom of the page. I have done some inline lookups, and they're trivially difficult; I'm working on a formal example I can post on here, but it's taken me a while. You have to remember to assign a high z-index or the side bar may cover any part it collides with, and you need to make sure you position it correctly. Other than that, it is fairly much like a normal AJAX/HTML sort of deal.
