Absolute positioning for help button

How do I set the absolute position of an object to always be at a certain position on the screen, doesn't matter what resolution of the browser will be.


e.g. I am wireframing a web application where the main screen is always centred and set to be 980 px wide. However, I would like to be able to float a support box that will always be set to absolute left of the browser screen (regardless of the resolution).


Is this possible?

Kind of. You can group all your screen's content inside a dynamic panel with scroll and place the support box on top of it.

Hi Guys,


How do a make a panel or container or something that is 80% of the screen resolution and always floats in the center. This is fundemental design and I cannot seem to figure out how to do this.


Thanks,


Dave

Thank you for grouping my question with the other question, but I still am not seeing the answer to my question. I do not understand how the guy created a 980 wide set of content that always floated in the middle.


Or how I create a colored box (representative of a div) that is always the width of the page no matter what the page width is?


Thanks

The steps are:


First group all your content inside a dynamic panel but the thing you want to float.


Select the dynamic panel and set scroll bars to it using the Properties panel.


Place the element you want to float above the panel.


That makes something float for a fixed size of screen. The next version (coming in a few weeks) will allow to set the size of the dynamic panel the same as the current resolution of the prototype.
