How to open a modal component in full screen?


As you can see on this picture, from the home screen, 5 buttons open modals.
I set the width and eight to 100% or auto but there's is still a huge margin surrounding the component. As there already is a mandatory margin around the table, very few space is left for the data.

Does someone know if it's possible to make the modals full screen?

Hey Pete! I just put in a request for this. In the meantime, Custom CSS might be our best bet here.

Here's the CSS that works for me:

#editorModalMount > div > div > div > div > div.ant-modal-content > div {
  padding: 0px;

Thanks for your quick reply Victoria!

I'm not a CSS specialist so I don't understand the multiple div statements in your suggestion. I'm afraid they're specific to your layout.
I also didn't managed to find the element with editorModalMount id in my CSS code.
Anyway, I added:
.ant-modal-content {
padding: 0px;
in the custom CSS. No effect on the modal dimensions.

In addition to the description of my problem, I need to say that the height and width set to auto in the editor are enough to make the modal full screen on PC browser. It's only on a mobile device that the margins are added (by the way, I was looking more after margins than padding to remove the gaps around the modal, because margins are outside the component whereas the padding is inside).

I'm still trying to find a workaround to save some space for my table. I managed to give it a few more pixels by removing some padding:
.retool-grid.with-padding {
padding: 0px

This is the best I can get it to. The css is using wildcard, you can read it here: Wildcard Selectors (*, ^ and $) in CSS for classes - GeeksforGeeks

This line: div[class*='_retool-{{}}'] div[class*='ant-modal-body']
is looking for a <div> that contains a class ant-modal-body AND it must have a parent <div> with class _retool-{{}} Note: I used {{ }} to inject the modal's ID, you can hardcode your modal's ID if you wish.

The second block is similar but it goes one more level deeper for div.retool-grid to remove another padding.

This will not remove padding globally.

CSS in image

div[class*='_retool-{{}}'] div[class*='ant-modal-body'] {
  padding-left: 0px;
  padding-right: 0px;
  padding-bottom: 0px;

div[class*='_retool-{{}}'] div[class*='ant-modal-body'] div.retool-grid {
  padding: 0;

Update to this thread! Modal frames have padding controls, and I think it should help with this request :slight_smile: Check out this post here about it:
