editor - large window with bootstrap

I am using bootstrap4 formatting and am not able to increase the size of the lightbox editor. I have tried the css in the example: https://editor.datatables.net/examples/styling/large.html

I am using a template for the editor and even tried to add 'container-fluid' class and col-12 to the template and that is not working either.

    As it's working in the link you referred to, it'll be something to do with your CSS - possibly local values over-riding. Please can you link to your page, or create a test case, so we're able to debug that.

    let me see if i can put a test case together. but could it be because the example in the link is not using bootstrap4? I tried doing an inspect to see what bootstrap calls the editor window and changed the code accordingly, but that didn't work or I did something wrong.

    Ah, yep, that will affect it. We'll take a look and report back,

    This can be done with a bootstrap class to be added to the same element that gets the .modal-dialog class.

    I tried with displayNode() to get the element but I was not successful. So I used jquery selector.

    editor
        .on( 'open', function () {
            $( “.modal-dialog” ).addClass( 'modal-xl' );
        } )
        .on( 'close', function () {
            $( “.modal-dialog” ).removeClass( 'modal-xl' );
        } );
    

    Size - Class - Modal max width
    Small - modal-sm - 300px
    Default - None - 500px
    Large - modal-lg - 800px
    Extra large - modal-xl - 1140px

    ( the edit button doesn’t work because I was lazy and copied the script from Ajax data… but the new button launches the modal.)

    This will do it as well:

      $('div.modal-dialog', editor.displayNode()).addClass('modal-xl');

    Thanks Allan, this method is also how I expanded on the datatables bootstrap styling without having to modify the js file.
