Palette & Modal Dialog for Xojo Web 2.0

Small gift for the community. Given the current state of WebDialog and the removal of the palette version, I integrated the jsPanel library into Xojo.
Obviously not all the functionality is present because I integrated only those that I needed.

For those interested you can download the example with the class here.


Looks great, thank you for this.

I will try to see if there is a way for a child to minimize within the parent. I can only move the child within the parent and maximize works as expected.

Yes, you can. I need to update the example to allow minimizeTo to be set. Now I don’t think I can, but I will surely do it.

Thank you very much, I’m no longer stuck in my project!
Great addition!

Updated to version 1.0.2:

-Fixed the problem that did not set correctly the top property

New Link here.

Do you know why, when I minimize the child:

  • it takes all the parent’s width (I expected the same minimized width as other dialogs)
  • it only has the icon to maximize (I expected 2 icons, one to restore to the previous state and maximize button)

Unfortunately when specifying the controlID it has this behavior which is not up to me. I can’t tell if it’s a bug or intentional. There would be also a fourth parameter that is used to disable the function and involves manually writing code to place the dialog where you want. To get the effect you are looking for just set it to ‘parent’.

Hi Attilio,
thank you for share this usefull module.
I’m not an expert user of Xojo, I try to find a way to run a method in the calling form when on the jsPanel I push a button.
I try with eventdefinition/addhandler/raiseevent but without success. Is there a way to do this?
Could you give me some suggestions?

Thank you

Hi oscar,
unfortunately I’m on vacation these days and have a hard time helping you. If you have patience to wait a few days I will try to create an example. Anyway from what I understand you have a WebContainer with a WebButton and what you need is to call a method that is present on the webpage? The process you described is correct. Define a new event (EventName), invoke the event with “RaiseEvent EventName” when you click the button. When you create the webContainer with (var t as new WebContainerpersonal) you have to add the directive AddEvent t.EventName,AddressOfMethodName . Another way to do the same thing is to use delegates.

Sorry for the unclear answer. If you can’t solve the problem I will try to post an example next week. If you need anything else feel free to write me in private :wink:
