Dialog height not taking in IE8 when Prototype is used

Reported by: woakesd Owned by:

Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.8.2

The following code demonstrates the problem, try it without Prototype and the page looks fine with a nice dialog, with Prototype the dialog height is reduced substantially.

Could be a Prototype bug of course!

This is a showstopper upgrading a client's site to 1.8.2. :(

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 TransitionalEN" "">

<html xmlns="" >



<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" />

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript">



<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(function() {

var setupDialog = function(eltId) {

jQuery('<h1>hello world!</h1>').dialog({

autoOpen: true,

width: 610,

height: 450,

modal: true,

resizable: false,

draggable: false

I've subsequently discovered that this is also a problem with jQueryui 1.7.3 only when using jQuery 1.4.2 and Prototype 1.6.1.

If you use jQueryui 1.7.3 with jQuery 1.3.2 and Prototype 1.6.1 and dialog is the height you would expect.

The underlying problem is actually in jQuery core and was recently fixed. The fix will go out with jQuery 1.4.3, at which point you should be able to use 1.7.3 or any 1.8.x release and the height should be correct.
