[Editor] Make Script Editor Windows Modeless

6 months ago

Back with another pipe dream. Basically the adv editor tries to use "modal dialogs" when you edit a script in the scripts section, and all it really does is prevent you from doing anything else in the main window until the modal is closed. I'd rather it didn't do that.

  1. A benefit of using a modal over a modeless window is that it's synchronous, so the value of the modal can be taken right after the modal is closed. The editor doesn't use this feature at all.
  2. None of the other popups in the AE are modal.
  3. The .showModalDialog() method is becoming obsolete in modern browsers.
