I have an issue regarding with the modal panel using the rich faces tag. The problem i am facing here is when i use the modal panel tag , the modal panel generated is not coming in the middle of the webpage in my browser. I am currently using IE 7 . Please let me know the setting so that the modal panel is displayed in the middle of the web page by default ?
I've written a RichFaces application where I dynamically show/hide a modal panel and have it centralised as well. This is the definition I used (JSF 1.2, Richfaces; tested on IE6-8, FireFox [(Windows and Linux], Opera, Chrome[Windows and Linux]).
The "trick" is, I think, to have "left" and "right" set to"auto". I am not running a RichFaces environemtn at the moment, so I cannot test it myself (I have a nasty feeling that this does not re-centre itself if the browser window is resized).
If that does not work for you, your only other option is to use some JS to calculate the required position.
Also, there appears to be some few issues reported on JIRA with regards to the modalPanel (often down to a combination of RichFaces version and browser).
