Modal Dialogs within Standard Objects Section



I'm curious if it is possible to use a jQuery modal dialog box inside of a section of a Standard object, like the Account object.


So i have created a visualforce page and in this page there is a modal window that pops up based on user events. This visual force page will primarily rest inside of a section on the Account standard object.


However since these sections are iframes within the standard object page, i have no idea how to get the modal dialog from within the iframe/section to position on top of the parent page, the Account standard object page.


Has anyone successfully got this to work before?


I doubt you'll be able to do this - the jquery dialogs are layers and browsers won't allow the content to be displayed outside of the page boundaries. As far as the browser is concerned, your iframe is separate page.
