  1. Very quick. Thanks! But what is the difference between Width and Maximum Width? My modal dialogue set to width=100, maximumWidth=500 still displays as 100 pixels and is neither expandable nor auto-expanded by the size of the displayed data.

  2. One more problem is height cannot be set as Percentage

    • You would set the size based on the content of your modal page. For example, if the items in your modal page need at least 600px to show up, set the size to a little over 600px in order to give it a bit of bottom margin.

  3. thanks for your help..

  4. Hi Cristoph, is there any way to specify that the dialog box is resizable, so the user can drag the border and stretch it?


    • Hi Skip. I have never figured that out. You may want to ask on Slack or the forums.
