Window Position

The Window offers two ways for you to control its position:

  • the Top and Left properties (read more in the Dimensions article)
  • the Centered boolean property

Set Top and Left offset to the Window

<TelerikWindow Top="50px" Left="100px" Visible="true">
    <WindowTitle>
        <strong>The Title</strong>
    </WindowTitle>
    <WindowContent>
        I am <strong>100px</strong> away from the left edge of the <strong>app</strong> container, and <strong>50px</strong> away from its top.
    </WindowContent>
</TelerikWindow>

The Centered property adds a CSS class that sets the window position to top: 50%; left: 50%; transform: translate(-50%, -50%);. This keep is it centered if the viewport size changes.

If the Top and/or Left properties are set, they will take precedence, because they render as rules in an inline style attribute.

The Centered parameter is true by default.

Center the Window

<TelerikWindow Centered="true" Visible="true">
    <WindowTitle>
        <strong>The Title</strong>
    </WindowTitle>
    <WindowContent>
        I am <strong>centered</strong> in the app container (usually the viewport).
    </WindowContent>
</TelerikWindow>

If you want to center the window dynamically through data binding its Centered property, you may want to data bind the Top and Left properties as well, so you can reset them to null when you want to center the window in the viewport.

The Window renders in the root of the application (where the <TelerikRootComponent> is declared). This, generally, positions it relatively to the viewport. If you have special CSS positioning, margins or other offsets on the app element, they may affect the position of the Window.
