[Product-Developers] plone.app.jquerytools and overlays for forms not using AJAX

We want to use a p.a.jquerytools-like overlay for a "confirm" screen
on a complex form. The user configures a product to buy on a bespoke
form, and then clicks "Buy". At this point, we need to overlay a
confirm dialogue. This needs to show a few bits of dynamic information
(which can be calculated in JavaScript) and give a few options (e.g.
"would you also like to buy" type recommendations), before clicking OK
or Cancel. Cancel would close the overlay. OK would submit the
underlying form where the user has configured the product they are

The crucial thing here is that the form is not a standalone view. It's
client-side only.

Are there any examples/docs for doing this kind of thing?
