One thought on “placing a jquery dialog inside a div (towards creating 3 column layout using jquery)

  1. f you make your dialog box’s position:absolute, then its taken about of the regular page flow, and you can use the left and top property to place it anywhere on the page.

    $(‘.selector’).dialog({ dialogClass: ‘myPosition’ });

    and define the myPosition css class as:

    .myPosition {
    position: absolute;
    right: 200px;

    You can set the top, left, right, and bottom properties for myPosition using either a length such as in pixels or percentage.
