  • How to reproduce: just simply create a dialog window containing a lot of contents

  • My Workaround:

I modified the css rule above to obtain scrollable contents (here is a screenshot

.ui-dialog-content {

/*resets*/margin: 0; padding: 0; border: 0; outline: 0; line-height: 1.3; text-decoration: none; font-size: 100%; list-style: none;

color: #222222;

/*padding: 1.5em 1.7em; LA FIX */

overflow: auto; /* LA FIX to enable auto scroll */

height: 100%; /* LA FIX */


The "overflow: auto" enable scrolling, "height: 100%" is for IE compatibility and I removed paddings for box model problems.

The problem with paddings is that the contents has a width + a padding, and according to the standard box model the displayed box has its display-width to width+padding. So even if overflow: auto is set, the scrollbar will not be displayed.
