boostrap modal properties

Hi there,

From the page below:

I am able to built a modal successfully.  The problem is that I would like the "modal box" to appear (say) 5 centimeters below the place it automatically appears, simply because the upper fixed panel (shown in yellow in the figure attached) "hides" part of the modal box.

What should I include (I guess) here:

<div class="modal fade" id="myModal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel">
  <div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
    <div class="modal-content">

so that I will have the full modal box shown?

You just need to add a top value

.modal-dialog {
position: absolute;
left: 0;
right: 0;
top: 300px;
bottom: 0;
margin: auto;

Open in new window

Here is a Jsfiddle

also if required you can set a z-index to make sure it will on top of other element

You may need to adjust it for other @media queries (if the panel have different size in other media queries).
