JDeveloper 22.214.171.124.0 | Windows XP / 7 | Internet Explorer 8
When using JDeveloper 126.96.36.199.0, FacesMessage popups were sized to fit the text. Since the upgrade to 188.8.131.52.0, they are significantly larger than necessary. A popup with a single line of text appears to be 250px in height.
We have tried modifying af_dialog_content-center in the CSS to force the messages to be smaller. We have also tried adjusting the <af:messages> tag in the jspx, hardcoding the width and height in InlineStyle and setting the StyleClass to AFStretchWidth. The size never changes. However, if we set something else (like background-color in the CSS), the modification is displayed as expected.
if this is a change in the behavior between two JDeveloper versions then this sounds like a bug. If you have a customer support contract, can you file this and provide a 11g R1 testcase for them to play with and upgrade to 11g R2?
