Popup window position to remain constant even after backend call

I have a popup window opening. There is one search also happening in the popup window.

When I open the page, I have some attributes defined like dialogHeight and width etc.

If I change the window position, and then do the search, when the page is loaded again with the result again, the window moves to its original position.

This being a help window, I want that it stays in the location user has adjusted it to. Like to the right hand side like we have the word help opening.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Regards,
Tina


Alongwith being a good coder, try to be a good professional as well!

That is a browser behavior based on the user's computer. How to fix it? Only thing I can suggest is you would have to remember where the user moved it tp, set a cookie, when that window loads again check a cookie value and move it there.
