Subject RE: Dialog position

Yeah, I suspected that would work, though I was hoping to not have to
implement an ActionListener in order to add window position control.

I'd expect windowTop and windowLeft attributes would be better
enhancements though, given their analogous counterparts in javascript.

Subject: RE: Dialog position

We've been able to control the placement of server launched dialogs by
setting the windows properties as per the following example.

  public static void launchApprovalDialog(String title, String remark,
UIComponent source) {
    FacesContext context = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
    ViewHandler vh = context.getApplication().getViewHandler();
    UIViewRoot dialog = vh.createView(context, "/ApprovalDialog.jspx");
dialog:download does not work"

    HashMap winProps = new HashMap();
    winProps.put("width", new Integer(300));
    winProps.put("height", new Integer(200));
    winProps.put("left", new Integer(200));
    winProps.put("top", new Integer(200));
    HashMap props = new HashMap();
    props.put("title", title);
    props.put("remark", remark);
    if (source != null) {
      props.put("approveButton", Boolean.valueOf(true));
    } else {
      props.put("approveButton", Boolean.valueOf(false));

    RequestContext afc = RequestContext.getCurrentInstance();
    afc.launchDialog(dialog, props, source, true, winProps);

It would be nice if the CoreCommand tags supported windowLeft and
windowRight in addition to windowHeight and windowWidth |

Subject: Dialog position

Hello all,


Are we able to control position of dialogs displayed via buttons in a
JSP which use the "dialog:" notation in their action attributes?  The
dialogs always pop up with their top-left corner near the current
browser window's top-left corner, and I'd like to have them centered on
the window instead.
