Set popup width in nested popup window

I am having a problem with setting the width of a nested popup window.

The first window i was able to set its width via $DataObjectManager->set_popup_width(800); but this did not work when setting the width of the window that pops up inside this window.

The code: [url][/url]

Does anyone know a fix for this? i also tried globally setting all window widths via DataObjectManager::set_popup_width(800); in my config file but this did not change the nested windows width either.

Any help would be appreciated.

Don't you want $manager->setPopupWidth()?

If i change my code from "set_popup_width(800)" to "setPopupWidth(800)" the nested window still does not use the set width. Both functions give me the same result: the first window resizes correctly but the child window does not.

Any ideas of ways to test what the problem could be?

Ohh.. No, it doesn't work for nested DOM.

Ooh, do you know if there is a work around for this? or a way to set the default popup width for all windows that the nested window would get set to?

The problem is the SimpleHTMLEditorField is wider than the window, so it sets ugly scroll bars and makes its hard to use. I only need it another 100px really.

Thanks for your help!

So i have fixed the problem, but i needed to hack the data object core js files, "dataobject_manager.js" and "dataobjectmanager_popup.js".

Below is the updated code for "dataobject_manager.js"
I made changes on lines 31, 46 and 61

The other change was to delete line 5 from "dataobjectmanager_popup.js", the line that sets the iframe width.

These changes make it so the width for the nested popup is correctly set via $manager->setPopupWidth().

Thanks PieterV, the JS works quite well. Any tips on how I should increase the height of the popup? In chrome it seems to stick to the bottom

For anyone who uses the above posted javascript to fix nested popup widths, please be aware that you'll need to replace all instances of:
'#srch_fld' to '.srch_fld'
'#srch_clear' to '.srch_clear'

as they've changed to classes.

You'll also need to hack the Headings function in TableListField.php in order to make sorting work properly, but that's a different story...
