Hello experts!! =)

Today I'm facing a problem related with window size. I created an XUI
window through an XML document which I called productButton.xml, but
when I called the creation of the new XUI window, the elements inside
the window doesn't fit with the design I would like to have. I'm using a
tabpanel tag inside a window tag, I would like to know if any of you
know more details about the size attributes for an XUI window. I was
thinking that maybe there's a predefined size which doesn't allows me to
personalize my metrics for my window. I called for the creation of my
window since an acl script using the window_create command, something
like this: window_create('xui',0x10,$doc)

So please, if any of you knows some details about this issue I really
appreciate your help and support.

Best regards,

Hi Paullette,

You lost me a little on the "tabpanel tag inside a window tag" but what I
have found is that my XUI dialogs will scale up based on the content in
them. I do not remember if I specify the window size when I use
window_create() but I know that whatever is there, if there is anything
there, specifying the window geometry, is overridden by what I shove into
my own tabpanel.

If you want a window larger than the size of the controls and their
content, then you should read the window_create() help and focus on the
[geom]. Or (I just checked my files) you can use window_set($win,
"geometry","HxW+X+Y"). Height. Width. X and Y are horizontal/vertical
offsets. All are in pixels.

You can't have a window smaller than your largest control, however. Even
if that control is not showing. (Or I haven't found a way to do that
anyhow. So the largest tabpanel I have, even if it does not ever display,
"rules" the window size.)

Paul I really appreciate your time, here's a small part of my XUI document




window_create('xui',0x10,$doc) in my ACL script the window created shows me only a part of my content, it looks like, for example, some elements are hidden behind a

element in HTML; manually I have to resize my window in order to see my bottom elements. I already erase the height and with attributes in window, however the created window stills the same size and with same problem. You have any idea about what stuff I'm missing?

Thank you very much!!

Try doing something like:

window_create('xui',0x10,$doc,"600x400+10+20")

Or adding:
window_set($xuiwin,"geometry","600x400+10+20")

Where $xuiwin is the window ID returned by your window_create(), 600 is
pixels wide, 400 is pixels high, 10 is pixels right of the upper-left
corner, and 20 is pixels down from the upper-left corner. But no, I don't
know why your window is obscuring your XUI content. I *can't* make that
happen even in some cases where I'd like it to. So I'm not sure what's
going on.

Hello again! 😃


Ok, so I'm still facing the problem =( I decided to attach an image of my problem, so I think maybe you could understand better my trouble and associatte it with any issue maybe you had. Hope this image would be useful, as you can see I add a yellow square which involves my created window, then I add a red figure which encloses the border (predefined I suppose) which doesn't let me to show all my elements. Does anybody knows how can I modify this kind of predefined size or maybe there's not an option to change it and I will have to adjust my design to this size? =(


As always I really appreciate your time and support.


Best Regards!

It looks docked. What happens if you launch it un-docked? I don't do
anything docked, so I'm not familiar with what behavior "features" it
brings. I'm wondering if additional real estate is claimed by docking ...

Also, I would try adding resize="both" to every element.

Paul!


I really apreciatte your time and support, finally I've found that the tabpanel was the element which stablished the boundaries, I don't really know why, however I just decided to eliminate it, and finally I can see all my content inside my window, even if is docked.


Again, I'm pretty grateful because of your help.


Regards,
