I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I'd like to request a new feature. I would like to easily ask jQuery UI Dialog boxes to tile/stagger themselves if there are more than one on the screen. I thought I might be able to do this with the position option, but I couldn't make it happen after an hour of experimenting.
Ideally I would like to be able to define a static starting position if there are no other dialog boxes, and another static position for subsequent boxes or maybe a dynamic position based on how many dialogs exist. E.g. dialog0 static position, dialog1 x and y offset 30px, dialog2 x and y offset 60px, etc. Maybe just a staggering option so that each subsequent dialog is offset from the static position by X, Y pixels.
It seems to be related to ticket #8673, which is marked as wontfix. A workaround is posted in that ticket, but the workaround only works for GET types, not POST. This functionality is important to me.
I would either like jQuery UI Tabs to support sending POST data again using ui.ajaxSettings.data, or a better workaround developed and published. Either way, a note should be added in the API documentation so others won't need to waste hours on this like I did.
