Constants Details

DEFAULT

Value used for x, y, width, height of initial bounds when you want the window to auto-determine bounds when shown for the first time.

Returns

Sample

// show a dialog that self-determines bounds the first time it it open, then remembers last bounds for future show operations
var win = application.createWindow("myName", JSWindow.DIALOG);
win.setInitialBounds(JSWindow.DEFAULT, JSWindow.DEFAULT, JSWindow.DEFAULT, JSWindow.DEFAULT); // will be shown initially centred and with preferred size
forms.myForm.show(win);
 

DIALOG

Window type constant that identifies a non-modal dialog type.
Non-modal dialogs will allow the user to interact with parent windows, but are less independent then windows with WINDOW type.
Dialogs will stay on top of parent windows and are less accessible through the OS window manager. In web-client dialogs will not
open in a separate browser window.

Returns

Sample

// create a non-modal dialog on top of current active form's window and show a form inside it
var myWindow = application.createWindow("myName", JSWindow.DIALOG);
myWindow.show(forms.myForm);
 

FULL_SCREEN

Value that can be used for bounds in order to specify that a dialog/window should completely fill the screen.

Returns

Sample

// create and show a window, with specified title, full screen
var win = application.createWindow("windowName", JSWindow.WINDOW);
win.setInitialBounds(JSWindow.FULL_SCREEN, JSWindow.FULL_SCREEN, JSWindow.FULL_SCREEN, JSWindow.FULL_SCREEN);
win.setTitle("This is a window");
controller.show(win);
 

MODAL_DIALOG

Window type constant that identifies a modal dialog type. Modal dialogs will not allow the user to interact with the parent window(s) until closed.
Dialogs will stay on top of parent windows and are less accessible through the OS window manager. In web-client dialogs will not
open in a separate browser window. NOTE: no code is executed in Smart Client after a modal dialog is shown (the show operation blocks) until this dialog closes.

Returns

Sample

// create a modal dialog on top of current active form's window and show a form inside it
var myWindow = application.createWindow("myName", JSWindow.MODAL_DIALOG);
myWindow.show(forms.myForm);
 

WINDOW

Window type constant that identifies a window type. WINDOW type is the most independent type of window. It will be more accessible through the OS window
manager, it can appear both in front of and under other windows and it doesn't block user interaction for other windows. In web-client windows will
open in a separate browser window.

Returns

Sample

// create a window and show a form inside it
var myWindow = application.createWindow("myName", JSWindow.WINDOW);
myWindow.show(forms.myForm);
 



Property Details

controller

Get the current controller from the window/dialog.

Returns

Sample

var formName = application.getWindow('test').controller.getName();
 

resizable

Gets/Sets whether or not this window can be resized by the user (default true).

Returns

Sample

var someWindow = application.getWindow("someWindowName");
if (someWindow.isVisible() == false) {
	controller.show(someWindow);
	someWindow.resizable = false;
}
 

storeBounds

Tells whether or not the bounds of this window should be stored/persisted (default false).
If true, the window's bounds will be stored when the window is closed. Stored bounds will be used when the window is shown again instead of initialBounds.
For non resizable windows, only location is stored/persisted.

Returns

Sample

var win1 = application.createWindow("Window 1", JSWindow.DIALOG, null);
win1.setInitialBounds(200, 200, 450, 350);
win1.resizable = false;
win1.storeBounds = true;
win1.title = "Window 1";
controller.show(win1);
 

title

Gets/Sets the title text.

Returns

Sample

var win1 = application.createWindow("Window 1", JSWindow.WINDOW, null);
win1.setInitialBounds(200, 200, 450, 350);
win1.title = "Window 1";
controller.show(win1);
 

undecorated

Gets/Sets the undecorated property.
If set then this window will not have any decoration and can't be moved/resized or closed.

Returns

Boolean - if this window will be undecorated

Sample

var someWindow = application.createWindow("someWindowName", JSWindow.WINDOW, null);
someWindow.setInitialBounds(200, 200, 450, 350);
controller.show(someWindow);

var undecorated = "Undecorated: " + someWindow.isUndecorated() + "\n"
var locationX = "Location-X-coordinate: " + someWindow.getX() + "\n"
var locationY = "Location-Y-coordinate: " + someWindow.getY() + "\n"
var info = name + parent + type + height + width + locationX + locationY + undecorated + "\n"
var closeMsg = "Press 'Ok' to close this dialog."

var infoDialog = plugins.dialogs.showInfoDialog("Window Info", info + closeMsg, "Ok");
if (infoDialog == "Ok") someWindow.close()
