Nick, thanks for sharing.
I succesfully used your JQDialogDecorator on VAST 8.0.2 (Seaside 3.0 rc1).
The only thing I had to do is change the method WAComponent>>jqDialog: to
remove the #wait: which is not working on VAST (I simply send
That, and changing the behavior of the callbackUrl (when you press the X on
the dialog to close it) to do what I needed.
