why are successive 'thickbox' pop-up windows confined to the height / width of the predecessor ?

I am using (jquery ?) thickbox for pop-up screens. I've found that successive thickbox screens are confined to the area of the predecessor thickbox. is there a way around that ?

I have thickbox set at height=400, width=400, so I've found I'm limited to that size or smaller for a successive thickbox pop-up, and I have a situation where I'd like the size to be outside of the originating thickbox.

Here's the originating thickbox




And here's the subsequent thickbox



Even though I have the width set to 800, it's chopped off at 400

Since jQuery and its plugins are client-side libraries, it'd be best to post this in the HTML/JavaScript forum and with the JSP markup already rendered. In other words, show what's sent to the browser -- not your JSP source code.

As thickbox is deprecated, I'm not familiar with how it works. If it creates the "sub" dialogs inside the originals, then yes, a child cannot display outside the borders of its parent.

You might want to investigate alternative (supported) dialog plugins.

Bear, ok on it being deprecated, but I'm not in a position to swap it out.

I posted this separately so will close this one out.
