jquery ui 1.8 weird behavior .dialog("open")

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.8
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

just FYI, jquery ui 1.8 seems to like to jump the page when calling

the .dialog("open") regardless of other posts suggesting to simply

return false in the event handler -- i'm using IE 8 in IE7 emulate


the simple fix was i switched to 1.7.2 and the problem went away --

too bad though, i'd like to keep current

actually, 1.7.2 works with jquery 1.3.2 and 1.4.2 -- it's only when

1.8 gets involved there's a problem

I am also seeing this behavior in versions 6,7,8 of IE. I am still investigating to see if I can create a test case, but in the meantime, I can verify that this is not an isolated incident.

Replying to [comment:1 jedatu]:

I upgraded to version 1.8.2 and then applied position:absolute to the root div.ui-dialog and it seems to be working fine. (Also see this thread: Stack Overflow Ques 2747431)

The .ui-dialog element has to be positioned. This is a requirement of the dialog plugin and the positioning defaults to absolute in the theme file. Can someone post a page showing the problem?
