Dialogs centered on app and not desktop

Postby HPW » Fri Mar 04, 2011 5:05 am

I get a new large screen (1920x1200) in the office.
I can now arrange my apps on different screen location.
One problem is now that all native neobook-dialogs (AlertBox, MessageBox, etc) appears centered on screen, which can be no more above the appwindow.

When we would not like to break script syntax, how about a global system variable for neobook for example [DialogCenteredApp].

When [DialogCenteredApp] is set to 'true' all Dialogs get centered relative to the app-window and no more to the desktop.
Anything else or nothing is the current behaviour.

I know that I can emulate this with a custom window now.

I second this suggestion and think that this should be the default of how these windows appear.

That's a good idea. I'll make sure it's added to the list.

While I am a big proponent of "not breaking existing functionality" ... in this case, I can't think of a scenario where someone would want these Dialog Boxes to appear at center of Screen rather than center of Application Window.

So, making it as the default option might be a good idea ... but I can be wrong !!! ... perhaps a poll of user opinions here might be in order.

I have also suggested this here:

No need for an option to center a dialog relative to desktop, in my opinion.

If it's added it will be optional so as not to break existing apps.
