Popups: which classes should be defined?

Postby davidgolden99 on Thu May 01, 2008 1:58 pm

What is the difference between the classes
popup
popupHead
popupBody
.MCPopupBody
.MCPopupBodyBG

No matter what I do, my popups all look exactly like the topic.

I think you're looking at the wrong popups.

The popup, popupHead, popupBody styles are for text popups, not topic popups.
If you insert a text popup (Insert > Text Popup), you should see your style changes.

A topic popup will display the topic as it is, using the styles of that topic.

The classes .MCPopupBody and .MCPopupBodyBG relate to topic popups, and are discussed here: http://forums.madcapsoftware.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5669

Thanks, Dave. I'm almost getting what I want, but it raises a couple more questions.

1. How can I adjust the placement of the text popup box when it opens. My spec calls for the popup to be Top edge flush with top edge of associated text link, and 3 px from right edge of associated text link.
2. When I insert the text popup, the tags show as <MadCap:popupHead>, even though I already had a popupHead class defined in my CSS. What's up with that?
