    [CLOSED] How to make a window belonging to a desktop?

    Hello

    As desktopWindow element has disapeared, I want to know how I can achive that:

    I have define an about window called from my start menu like that :

    <ext:DesktopModule ModuleID="About">
        <Launcher Text="About..." Icon="Information" />
        <Window>
            <ext:Window 
                runat="server" 
                Icon="Information"             
                Width="250"
                Height="200"
                Layout="Fit" 
                Hidden="True" 
                ExpandOnShow="True" 
                MinHeight="100" 
                MinWidth="100" 
                Maximizable="False" 
                Resizable="False" 
                Title="About" 
                Html="<br /><br /><center><b>ResMed KPIs global Version 2.0.0.0 Alpha 1</b></center><br /><br /><center><b><a href='javascript:#{wndNews}.show();'>What's new in this version</a></b></center><br /><br /><center>For query, information, help: <a href='mailto:bruno.teuile@resmed.fr'>contact</a></center>" 
                Minimizable="False" 
                Modal="True">                        
            </ext:Window>
        </Window>
    </ext:DesktopModule>
    In this window, I have a link that will open my changelog window define like that somewhere in the aspx page:

    <ext:Window 
        ID="wndNews" 
        runat="server" 
        Icon="Help"             
        Width="1000"
        Height="600"
        Layout="Fit" 
        Hidden="True" 
        ExpandOnShow="True" 
        MinHeight="100" 
        MinWidth="100" 
        Maximizable="False" 
        Minimizable="True"
        Resizable="False" 
        Title="What's new in this version" 
        Html="<embed id='DOC' src='documentation/NewVersion.pdf' width='980' height='600'>" 
        Modal="False">                        
    </ext:Window>
    Question : how can I connect this window to Desktop so I can see it in the taskbar and minimized it if needed?

    Hi,

    You should create a Window using the Desktop CreateWindow server method.
    this.Desktop1.CreateWindow(new Window()
    {
        Title = "Dynamic Window"
    });
    or client side
    App.Desktop1.desktop.showWindow({
        id     : "MyWindow1",
        title  : "Dynamic Window",
        width  : 200,
        height : 100
    });

    Wow! this is a big drawback from version 1.3, it was so easy to create a desktop window with DesktopWindow element...Helas, I was fear it was the only answer.

    If I undrstand well, all elements contained by the window must be create this way, this means, gridpanel, store for grid, top/bottom bar, and so on have to be created by code and not by using ext.net elements. Am I right.

    a module could be added only at first level menu?

    Please clarify what way do you attach that DesktopWindow to the Desktop in v1?
  5. #5
    I simply create

    <DesktoWindow  Id="toto">
    
    </DesktoWindow>
    and in the menu, on the click listener:

    #{toto}.show()
    More details taken from here http://examples1.ext.net/#/Desktop/Introduction/Overview/ :

                   <Items>
                        <ext:MenuItem ID="MenuItem1" runat="server" Text="All" Icon="Folder" HideOnClick="false">
                            <Menu>
                                <ext:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server">

    Honestly, I was surprised that it works in v1.

    In v2 you can set up a DesktopModule and open its Window from anywhere.

    Example
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    
    <%@ Register Assembly="Ext.Net" Namespace="Ext.Net" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Ext.NET Example</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <ext:ResourceManager runat="server" />
    
        <ext:Desktop ID="Desktop1" runat="server" BackgroundColor="black">
            <Modules>
                <ext:DesktopModule ModuleID="Module1">
                    <Window>
                        <ext:Window runat="server" Title="Greeting" Html="Hello!" />
                    </Window>
                </ext:DesktopModule>
            </Modules>
            <StartMenu runat="server" Height="300">
                <MenuItems>
                    <ext:MenuItem runat="server" Text="Open Window">
                        <Listeners>
                            <Click Handler="#{Desktop1}.getModule('Module1').createWindow();" />
                        </Listeners>
                    </ext:MenuItem>
                </MenuItems>
            </StartMenu>
        </ext:Desktop>
    </body>
    </html>

    Perfecto, I think it will make the work. By the way, for v1, it id your own desktop example.

    Well, yes. But I thought you wanted to avoid defining Modules for these windows. Never mind.
