Dialog: Unable To Resize Dialog In IE6

I can't resize the modal dialog box in IE6 for the example at In my testing, it seems to be something about having the bgiframe and the modal options both set to true. That's the only way I've been able to reproduce the problem. Confirmed with others that they experience the same issue.

I can shrink it, but not increase its size.

This works for me. The problem occurs if you move too fast and your cursor leaves the dialog and hovers over the overlay. I'm not sure what's causing that problem.

See: (bgiframe leaves room for improvement.)(by oov, in Japanese)

Abstract: (The misunderstanding is caused by watanabe)

  • bgirame makes an iframe behind the dialog.
  • The iframe is as big as the window.
  • The mouse event to shrink is captured by the dialog.
  • The mouse event to increase is captured by the iframe.
  • workaound: change bgiframe to make a div element over the iframe.


div class="ui-widget-overlay" ...
 iframe class="bgiframe" tabindex="-1" ... <- original.
div class="ui-dialog" ...


div class="ui-widget-overlay" ...
 div class="bgiframe" ... <- changed.
  iframe tabindex="-1" ... <- as big as parent element.
  div ... <- as big as parent element.
div class="ui-dialog" ...
