use rich:popupPanel in 4.x or modalPanel in 3.3.x
Ob by the way I use richfaces 3.3.0 version so can't use popupPanel.
Also cant use modalPanel
1. It blocks other component controls on screen when activated
2. cant hide after some period say 5-10 seconds
Can I place modalPanel at bottom-right corner by default?
ok then try modal panel And here is the possible answers to problems
2) it's your app problem I believe. You just trying to use h:command for calling the component (and page request closes it) or reRender'ing after show if showing with ajax.
