Bug in element.position IE

Reported by Nicolais | May 3rd, 2011 @ 08:07 AM

i upgraded from 1.2.4 to 1.3.1 with core and more.

The problem is that i position a div overlay with a white field in the center before i changed from 1.2.4 it was centered in all browsers but now in IE it somehow gets a position with alot more px and position it out of the screen so my popup starts at the right side.

@@@function showAjaxContent(url) {

$('ajax').getParent().position({position:'centerTop',edge:'centerTop', offset:{y:20}});
$('ajax').set('load', {
   'evalScripts': true,
    onComplete: function () {


Instead of the original position at the center it now goes all the way to the right site and more it basicly makes my site larger and position the element with a left close to 700 px more than it did in 1.2.4.

Can you guys help me out or is it a bug in 1.3.1

Thanks for your time

    Could you try 1.3.2. In this last release Element.Position has been rewritten and maybe it fixes your problem...

    • Tag set to 1.3.2, element.position, mootools-core

    It seems the rewrite doesn't fixed a bug but made a new one.

    I switched from 1.3.1 to 1.3.2 and now the centered position of the StickWin (Clientcide) Modal doesn't work anymore, it will appear at the end of the page. It worked from 1.2.x until 1.3.1.

    I switched without testing the whole page, because i didn't expected a new bug in an old function.
    I will not do that again.

    do you've got a jsfiddle? Unfortunately we didn't have many tests before this rewrite so it was hard to test each case.

    btw my problem was not related to IE but FF3.6.

    But i checked the github repository of clientcide today and found a new version of StickyWin.js from May 01, 2011. And that version seems to fix my problem. The fix seems to be the usage of Object.cleanValues(). Maybe it helps the original poster.

    Sorry for blaming the team ;-)
