View Full Version : [CLOSED] [1.2.3] cannot close MessageBox: too big

when the massageBox is given a very long string, it may become so big, that you cannot reach the OK button to close the box anymore - since the box does not have a close-icon at the right-top, you are stuck and need to refresh the page.

the long messages may happen, e.g. when we display java-script errors right away.

You cant really call this a bug. If you show much content use a window and define a fixed height.

well, then let's call it a feature request

I think everyone will agree that it's very bad behaviour for a message box to block the user from closing it (in any case) - and it's just too easy to get into such a situation.

Fortunately we don't use the message box directly but have a helper class around, so that we only need to apply the workaround in one place - but not all of your customers may be so lucky...
