Position of dialogs when CKEditor is in an iframe

We have an issue with dialogs position when CKEditor is placed in iframes whose height is higher than the screen height. The positionning calculus is based on the height of the viewport (so the iframe height when in an iframe) causing the dialog to be displayed far away (in the middle of the iframe) from the editor itself, because of the iframe height.

To reproduce this behaviour, we have set up a test case at the following address :

Click on the special character button of the first editor, the special char dialog is displayed in the middle of the iframe and :

  • on chrome, the browser automatically scrolls to the dialog (so users are lost when they close the dialog - because the editor is on the top of the screen)
  • on other browsers (firefox, probably IE), you have to scroll down to retrieve the dialog (so users think that the button doesn't work at all)

Copy files from attachment to samples folder, open testpage.html in your browser and open any dialog. You will see that:


In CKEditor 4.x and Firefox, Blink and Webkit dialog is opened in the middle of the iframe.

In IE dialog is also opened in the middle of the iframe but page scrolls to it.
