Fixed positioning for dialogs

It would be nice to have an option to use fixed positioning for dialogs. This is useful for non-modal dialogs that should remain within viewport and be accessible even when page is scrolled.

Yep it would be nice indeed :D -- so while its not implemented yet, this might be a simple solution:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#myDialog').dialog({dialogClass: "flora"});

works great for me

best regards, patrick

Replying to [comment:4 patrick]:

works great for me

this works only if the dialogs wont be resized! sry didnt realise this first!

but this could also be handled with the stop-function which is called at the end of the resize-operation:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#myDialog').dialog({dialogClass: "flora"});
  $(".ui-resizable").stop(function() {

Fixed in r3132. The problem still exists with resizing, but this is not actually a dialog-related issue (see #3628).
