Return Value



Opens a modal panel in the parent panel "ParentName". The function works like the function ChildPanelOnParent() but the child panel that is opened is modal. Before the panel is opened a check is made as to whether this panel has already been opened (isPanelOpen()). The size ratio between child and parent panel is 1 (scale = 1). If the size of the parent panel is changed, the child panel is not scaled to the new size. See chapter ChildPanelOnParent() for an example.

A child panel can not be resized. The only exception to this is the use of Layout Management in the child panel.

When a modal child panel is opened from a modal child panel, the opened child panel is modal application wise, ie. modal to the current UI.
