Error Upon Redirect to a Modal page using PLSQL Dynamic Content

In Oracle 20.2,

I have a region of type PLSQL Dynamic Content. Part of the code is this snippet:

            <button onclick = "javascript:window.location.replace(''f?p=&APP_ID.:30:&SESSION.::&DEBUG.::P30_FORM_ID,P30_ENV_NAME:'||Rec_d.FORM_ID||','||Rec_d.ENVIRONMENT_NAME||''');"
            class="t-Button t-Button--noLabel t-Button--icon lto40577670847038328_0 t-Button--hot" type="button" id="dynamic-delete" title="Delete Icon" aria-label="Delete Icon">
                <span class="t-Icon fa fa-trash-o fa-lg" aria-hidden="true"></span>

The snippet creates a Delete button that should redirect to Page 30 Modal Page when clicked upon.

The problem is I get this error instead when I click on the Delete button:

It works successfully when redirecting into Normal pages but gets an error on Modal Pages.

Am I missing something or is there a workaround to this?

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated!

    It is not possible to open a modal dialog page in this way. There is a big clue to this in the code used: you have window.location.replace(...) when of course modal dialog pages don't replace the contents of the current window, but pop-up on top of it.

    For dialog pages it is necessary to use the apex.navigation.dialog API method instead.
