Hi, I'm testing some modal window. The doModal(); method is invoked and everything works fine. My "problem" is with body behind modal, since it has a lot of content and it keeps scrolling. Is there any feature to fix that? I know that's the normal behavior and even Bootstrap does some workaround to do that by adding a modal-open class to body that sets overflow: hidden when their modal component is shown.

I've created an Interceptor looking for some onModal or onClose events to do something like that but I couldn't find them.


Now I'm trying to override a method from Window but when the page is shown I get this error message:

setAttr Maximum call stack size exceeded (RangeError)

Here is the piece of code:

zk.afterLoad(function() {
    zul.wnd.Window = zk.$extends(zul.wnd.Window, {
            doModal: function() {

After some reading I've reached to this piece of code:

zk.afterLoad("zul.wnd", function() {

    zul.wnd.Window.prototype.setVisible = function(visible) {

        if (visible) {
        } else {

        this.$supers('setVisible', arguments);

My modal-open class is simply

.modal-open {
    overflow: hidden;

just like Bootstrap does.

I'd appreciate if someone else could try to run this code in some different situations. This code is satisfying my need at the moment;

Thanks for sharing your solution ... I'd like to point out that this will affect all kinds of windows, not only the modal windows... and any visibility change of an embedded (into the page flow) would also trigger the css class. I propose this client side override to only affect windows in modal-mode.

zk.afterLoad('zul.wnd', function() {
    var xWindow = {};
    zk.override(zul.wnd.Window.prototype, xWindow, {
        setVisible : function(visible) {
            if(this.getMode() == 'modal') {
                jq(document.body).toggleClass('modal-open', visible)
            xWindow.setVisible.apply(this, arguments);

By using zk.override you don't have to copy the content of the original method and you can simply call the original method from the backup object xWindow.

Still this code doesn't cover nested modal windows ... if that's an issue additional logic would be needed.

Thanks! I'll try this code;
