Feature details

Today, dialog boxes can only open within a custom visual's borders, and customers find it difficult to consume the displayed content. With this new feature, the dialog box will open outside of the visual's borders and not cover it. The user can enter information in the dialog box and still see the custom visual. This API will enable developers to set the dialog box to open outside of the borders of a custom visual.
