Stopping the background scrolling whilst a modal popup is open

0
Hi all, Currently working on a system which involves using a modal popup to open an extra field when/if a profile is leaving the company. The page in the background has a scrollbar as it is longer than the screen though, so when i click and the popup opens, there is still a scrollbar in the background and it still works. Any way to "freeze" that background so it doesn't scroll whilst the modal popup is open?  Thanks! Ben

StackOverflow to the rescue!

This (or any for that matter) addition to the css can be easily done using sass: https://www.mxblog.nl/2016/03/using-sass-with-mendix/

Good luck!

This is a bug. And a big one. Modal means modal. By definition the main-window and all its elements should be inactive, untouchable, non-interfering at all for as long as the modal window is still active. So your best bet is to report a bug at Mendix and have them solve this bug. Mendix will be a platform for it.

Alas a javascript-bugfix like the Stackoverflow example will probably work for you and you will be in the clear, but it would be so much better is Mendix would solve this.
