why are successive 'thickbox' pop-up windows confined to the height / width of the predecessor ?

I am using jquery thickbox for pop-up screens. I've found that successive thickbox screens are confined to the area of the predecessor thickbox. is there a way around that ?

I have thickbox set at height=400, width=400, so I'm limited to that size or smaller for a successive thickbox pop-up, and I have a situation where I'd like the size to be outside of the originating thickbox size

Here's the originating thickbox

td align="right"> [a class= thickbox href= error_summary.htm?ERRORID=4413&height=400&width=400&TB_iframe=true&modal=true >2,033</ a></td


calling the 2nd thickbox

<tr>
[td align="left"> [a class='thickbox' href="error_detail.htm?ERRORID=4413&ERRORDESCR=MED_COV+Dup+Found&height=350&width=400&TB_iframe=true&modal=true">MED_COV Dup Found</td>
<td></td>
</tr>

(if I put code tags around this, both of these code snippets lose information, so I just hacked the syntax so it would show up)

Did you disable HTML in your post?

But, as I mentioned in the other post, if the dialog elements are being successively created within each successive dialog, children are restricted to the bounds of their parents. You'll either need to find a way to make thickbox behave differently, or create all dialogs at the top level.

Bear, ok on the answer. I was posting this a second time when you answered the first one. So I got my answer, it is confined.

ok on the "disable HTML", still working on my spurs here . . .

thanks.
