    Hi,

    Not sure if has been asked before…
    Is it possible to load a web page into a window — specifying an url as a parameter and using an IFRAME as a container?

    Thx

    Hello Lucian,

    Yes, it is possible to have an iframe as a jqxWindow’s content.

    That’s what I have expected indeed, although it’s not obvious in the source code.
    I have a hunch how that might be possible but it’s better to ask for a POC. 🙂
    If you could share a link to a demo would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi Lucian,

    Here is an example on the matter:

    <!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>
    <title>jQuery Window CSS Styling Sample</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.summer.css" type="text/css" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcore.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxwindow.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
    $("#jqxwindow").jqxWindow({ height: 500, width: 500, theme: 'summer' });
    $("#jqxwindow").jqxWindow('setContent', '<iframe src="http://www.jqwidgets.com/" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe>');
    });
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id='jqxwindow'>
    <div>
    Header</div>
    <div id='content'>
    </div>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    I thought so, but I wasn’t sure about how to call setContent. Let’s say I’ve seen something like this before in the jQuery world. 🙂
    Next… can we use the property initContent to achieve the same thing? How?

    Now.. I have to mention a little something I found awkward.
    I hope you’re already addressing the way jqx api is called and work towards offering to developers a simple unified way of doing it.
    What I mean is sometimes we’re supposed to call a method like this: $(“#jqxwindow”).jqxWindow(‘setContent’, ‘abc’);
    while in other cases we should be using this syntax: $(‘#tab’).jqxTabs().show();
    Why is that? 🙂

    Hi Lucian,

    For this purpose, initContent would not be apropriate. Use the setContent method instead.

    As for your second question, the following is an incorrect expression:

    $(‘#tab’).jqxTabs().show();

    show() is a base jQuery method and to call it you need only a selector, i.e.:

    $("#tab").show();

    jQWidgets methods, on the other hand, are called this way:

    $(“#jqxwindow”).jqxWindow(‘setContent’, ‘abc’);

    That’s one mystery less.

    Very much appreciated,
