Description (last modified by Eugene Lazutkin)

ttrenka suggested a clever CSS tip to center the dialog.

<div id=centerpoint>
    <div id=dialog>


#centerpoint {
   top: 50%;
   left: 50%;
   position: absolute;
   /* maybe a rule about overflow: visible? */

#dialog {
    position: relative;

    width: 600px;
    margin-left: -300px;

    height: 400px;
    margin-top: -200px;

Some JS may still be necessary to determine the size and measure the viewport so it fits on screen, but the actual layout could be CSS driven for smoother resizing.

the dialog is draggable, and not always centered. dialog also can retain relative position in the viewport when window is scrolled and so on. I would prefer to see position:fixed used, as we're going to have to do positioning math regardless.

Yah, I tend to agree. The position:fixed thing is already filed as #8679.
