Hi Team, 

we placed an ejs-grid inside an ejs-tabitem via content/#section and set the grid edit-mode to "dialog". Unfortunately we are not able to set the width or height of the dialog window as it works if we placed it outside the tabitem. The dialog-popup gets always shrinked to the smallest possible size. Away from that hte "dialog.position.Y" for example gets applied and works. Is it a bug or is there any chance to override something? 

Its my first time in this forum but i try to provide the affected code snippets:

The Tab and the Grid:

The function:

And the Result:

Hi Florian, 

Thanks for your update. 

Query : every Browser shows the same super-small dialog: 

By default, we have applied max-height for the edit dialog based(may vary on browsers) on the html and body element height. We suggest you to apply the height for the html and body element as 100% to resolve the reported problem (super small dialog). 

Please refer to the below code example for more information. 

<ejs-tab id="defaultTab" heightAdjustMode="Auto" overflowMode="Scrollable"> 
        <e-tab-tabitem header="ViewBag.headerTextTwo" content="#general-section"></e-tab-tabitem> 
        <e-tab-tabitem header="ViewBag.headerTextOne" content="#user-section"></e-tab-tabitem> 
<div id="general-section" style="display: none"> 
    <div id="user-section" style="display: none"> 
        <div class="row"> 
        <ejs-grid id="Grid" actionComplete="actionComplete" toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" })" dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource"> 
            <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true" mode="Dialog"></e-grid-editSettings> 
                <e-grid-column field="CustomerID" headerText="Customer Name" width="150"></e-grid-column> 
      // Its need to add the below CSS 
        html, body{ 
            height: 100% !important; 

     // add the below css to set grid form table width 100% 

.e-edit-dialog .e-gridform .e-table { 
        border-collapse: separate; 
        border-spacing: 11px; 
        width: 100%; 
    .e-edit-dialog .e-dlg-content { 
        position: relative; 

Note : We have already included the above CSS in source level since the CDN is not refreshed so we suggest you to apply the CSS in sample level. Once the cdn refreshed there is no need to add the above CSS(for apply width 2nd table).
