This works perfectly in Firefox. The box appears in the bottom right corner of the parent Div with a starting height of 200.Why doesn't it work in IE? Any fix for this?


<html>
<head>

<link type="text/css" href="jquery-ui-1.8.6.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" />      
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-ui-1.8.6.custom.min.js"></script>


<script>
$(function() {
    $("#dialog").dialog( { width: 200, height: 200 }).parent().position({ my: 'right bottom', at: 'right bottom', of: '#parent' });
});
</script>
</head>

<body>


<style>#parent { border: solid 1px #ddd; width: 500px; height: 400px; }</style>

<div id="parent">
</div>

<div id="dialog">
Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />Test Content<br />
</div>


</body>
</html>

Try either:

<script>
$(function() {
    $("#dialog").dialog( { width: 200, height: 200 }).css("height", "200px").css("overflow", "scroll").parent().position({ my: 'right bottom', at: 'right bottom', of: '#parent' });
});
</script>


OR this if you want overflow with scroll bars:


<script>
$(function() {
    $("#dialog").dialog( { width: 200, height: 200 }).css("height", "200px").css("overflow", "scroll").parent().position({ my: 'right bottom', at: 'right bottom', of: '#parent' });
});
</script>

Sorry if want overflow hidden it should be:

<script>
$(function() {
    $("#dialog").dialog( { width: 200, height: 200 }).css("height", "200px").css("overflow", "hidden").parent().position({ my: 'right bottom', at: 'right bottom', of: '#parent' });
});
</script>
