I have an aura Parent Component that has a table and a child component, where it is iterated in order to display each row separately. On each row of my child cmp i have a button where i want to open a modal. My problem is that the modal is not dispayed properly. I worry that it has to be on the parent component in order to be displayed properly, but i need to have it on child level in order to capture each row separately. I want to have my modal in the middle of my screen without changing anything in my background, as it does now... Has anyone faced something similar in the past ? enter image description here

Code below: Pls focus on the end of parent cmp where i embed the child cmp and in the child cmp Parent CMP

  • From what I see, I can assume that you're using Aura Application, by default it has height of the content, and your modal takes all the space it can take – ytiq Apr 5 at 6:57
  • I use the Component in the context of a vf page. I have a vf page that invokes this Component. – Giorgos Galaios Apr 5 at 7:29
  • is your HTML <body> full page size? – ytiq Apr 5 at 7:41
  • No. The only code i have implemented is what i have posted. Do i need to add anything in the code? – Giorgos Galaios Apr 5 at 9:16
  • size of your modal it controlled by the size of your document, if your HTML document is 500 px height, then by default your modal will be of this size, check if browser dev tools how big is your page currently, does it take a whole screen size? – ytiq Apr 5 at 10:11

Apply z-index css property to section element in your child component as shown below. It should fix your issue.

<!-- Modal/Popup Box starts here-->
<section role="dialog" tabindex="-1" aria-labelledby="modal-heading-01" aria- 
modal="true" aria-describedby="modal-content-id-1" class="slds-modal slds-fade-in-open" style="z-index:9999;">

  • In order for this to be functional i need to remove the "slds-table_fixed-layout" property from my Parent CMP. By removing this, it does solve my problem but it creates another problem: Table is not bordered and exceeds my screen. Do you have any idea how to handle this? – Giorgos Galaios Apr 5 at 15:52
  • borders will be applied while using slds-table_bordered class. can you add a screenshot? – Venky Apr 6 at 4:57
  • Solution found. Thank you very much! – Giorgos Galaios Apr 6 at 9:31
