    When opening a <kendo-dialog> the background is still scrolling.

    The work around I found is to set the <body> with an overflow:hidden.

    But how to automate this generally for all my modals?

    Since this is a modal, I think the kendo-dialog should be disabling the body scrolling.

    Any workaround to fix this?
