Homepage Edit Dashlet Dialog is stuck out of frame

Hi there,

I have been working with an issue now that involves the dialog window for editing the homepage dashlets.
The problem is that when the edit button is clicked, the dialog gets stuck in the top left corner of the page, so that there is no way to grab the header and move it.
Is there a fix or a workaround for this?
I’ve attached an example image.

I think this is a known issue.

Try this hack and see if it solves your problem:


Hi pgr,

thanks for the link! However, changing the z-index didn’t help because the window is actually outside of the browser frame. I was able find the SugarCRM function that created the dialog though, and changing the x/y positions fixes it.

However, this is not upgrade safe, so I need to figure out a way to override the function in the custom code folder. Unfortunately I do not have any experience doing this for js… only a bit of php overrides.
