0000978: Tidying up the overlay system

A little tweaking is needed…



This is on v9.0.5 using Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97.

Ah yes, I see a consequence of our scrollbar removal is that the embedded frames now bleed out if not enough space is assigned. I guess you would have had a scrollbar before, so in a sense this is a latent issue anyway.

The new overlay system allows automatic height calculation, which is obviously much more preferable – I'll update the tracker issue with templates that use this.

Also you're missing your close button in the top-right. I guess you may have not noticed my comment about updating your theme's global.css.

Hmm, change of plan. The nice thing about our overlay API is it's a drop in replacement for the browser popups API. So I want to keep those heights for if the admin turns overlays off. I'll make all overlays ignore the height setting.

Ah, yes. I did notice it, but was thinking that was some pre-release change that made it's way into the tarball. I'll make the css change.

Since you marked the tracker issue resolved/fixed, the add note button is now gone. :(

Made the changes to global.css, applied the new tarball. Everything seems to be working correctly now, except for an annoyance…

Is it possible to make a long "mult-ipage" overlay scroll back to the top to the new overlay? For example:
When a long overlay (such as clicking the "Comcode: add tag" button" in the editor) creates a situation where you scroll to the bottom to click a link, you are still at the bottom and the new overlay is several "pages" up forcing you to scroll back up to find the new overlay. O_o  If you accidentally click the window while scrolling back up you will close the new overlay before you even get to see it. This could be confusing to some users.
