Add "scrollable" option for Dialog

I would like to switch off scrollbars for individual dialogs, thus it would be great to have a scrollable ( option to control this behavior. This should be also available in the configuration of dialog service.

Hello Holger,

Thank you for submitting this feature request. We will track the customer demand here, and will try to prioritize accordingly.

Since the provided example is for a window component, I will explain how to remove scrollbars for the window component, but the approach is the same for dialogs.

Even though there is no scrollable option, scrollbars can be easily hidden. I have prepared a StackBlitz which demonstrates how to achieve this both by using service and by using kendo-window -

There are two main points:

  1. The height of the window has to be fixed. When using kendo-window simply set [height]="{{ someValue }}". When using a service add height: someValue to the configuration of the open() method
  2. Wrap the content of the window in a container which has to have at least these styles:


height: 100%; 
overflow: hidden

Please note that this method won't work when using service with strings(
