centers beautifully on a 1920x1080 screen :) How are you calling the window?

are you using ColdFusion.Window.create ?

some code will be required

that's interesting - it centers for a blank appointment (since I was answering the other question that's what I had seen) however it does not center for an existing. The centering does not "stick" with browser resize thoough. I see the same thing as brij for existing

I do get an error in the window however File not found: /scheduler/AJAXtest.cfm

OK, I figured out a work around

http://www.servicemysite.com/scheduler/AJAXtest.cfm

I first create the window, then load the content into it.

but does anyone know why this is happening?

view source for any of the cfajax tags isn't helpful as it shows the js output created by CF and -not- the cf code that is used to create the widget which is what controls how it looks and acts.

here ya go buddy. sorry about that.
<cfajaximport tags="cfwindow">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
<body>
This window will not center with a url in it.
<cfform name="test">
    <cfinput type="button" name="x" value="Create Window" 
        onClick="ColdFusion.Window.create('Window1', 'This is a CF window',
        'blankPage.cfm',
        {height:300,width:400,modal:true,closable:false,
        draggable:false,resizable:false,center:true,initshow:true, closable:true})">
</cfform>
<br /><br /><br /><br />


This one centers without a url in it. Why?
<cfform name="test">
    <cfinput type="button" name="x" value="Create Window 2" 
        onClick="ColdFusion.Window.create('Window2', 'This is a CF window2',
        '',
        {height:300,width:400,modal:true,closable:false,
        draggable:false,resizable:false,center:true,initshow:true, closable:true})"
        >
</cfform>
<br /><br /><br /><br />

This is the fix. Create the window first, the load the contents.
<cfform name="test">
    <cfinput type="button" name="x" value="Create Window 3" 
        onClick="ColdFusion.Window.create('Window3', 'This is a CF window3',
        '',
        {height:300,width:400,modal:true,closable:false,
        draggable:false,resizable:false,center:true,initshow:true, closable:true});
        
        ColdFusion.navigate('blankpage.cfm', 'Window3');
        return false;
        
        
        "
        >
</cfform>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

when I run that code on my local server, everything centers fine on all three buttons no matter what the width of the viewport.

I notice that you are applying styles to your cfwindow?  perhaps that's where the issue lies -  remove the style and see what you get

note: I'm running cf 8 if you're running 9 the default style may be different?

ok well it may be a version difference but there formatting is different - you running 9?

Thought if you were applying css to the window that may be causing the issue

I'm still on 8 here but looks like cfwindow implementation in cf9 -does- cfsuck :)

Try Ray's fix and you might check adobe for any patches updates to cf9
