Form in new window

Postby 4xjbh » Sat Feb 27, 2010 6:15 am

Is there a way to open a form in a new window rather than a dialog.

Not sure what you mean. In 5.1 you can open a dialog full screen. Is that what you want ?

Does this dialog act like a window? Minimize, Maximize, Restore down

In web client or smart client ? I guess you want a non modal dialog (that's basically a new window).

Smart Client. Yes non modal.

I have a solution with crm, financial, estimating modules and some users would like have them open side by side.

Ok so the modal == false option when opening the form in dialog is what you were looking for ?

Neither controller.show('dialogname',[Modal]) or showformindialog...... show the minimise or maximise buttons in the window, even when resizable == true.

Servoy currently only supports showing forms in Dialogs (no min/max buttons), not Windows.

Hi Maria,

By now Servoy support both dialogs and windows, see the type you can specify when creating a JSWindow.

Do not that in Servoy's Web Client a Window is tab in the browser

Not strictly true: in web client a window can still be opened as a window depending on the user's preferences.
By default most browsers are configured to open as a tab, but users can still change that if they want to.
In that case a Servoy window will open as a window.
