missing public method position

Im missing something like this:

position : function() {


return this;


a public method so i could do something like this

$(document).resize(function() {



which moves the dialog to the correct position on resize.

Now i see this in the source of dialog:

the force parameter allows us to move modal dialogs to their correct

position on open

moveToTop: function(force, event) {

but doing $('#foo').dialog('moveToTop', true);

doesnt move the dialog to the correct position.

The dialog position is an option. To change it's position you simply do:

$('#foo').dialog('option', 'position', whatever);
