  • Toolbar dissappears #69026



    Evaluating jqwidgets and I am mocking up a simple application non-functional prototype.

    I want a toolbar across the top of the screen. Below that is a vertical splitter. On the left side of the splitter is a listbox. On the right will eventually be a tabbed interface but I am stuck.

    If I do not specify a height for the listbox, everything works. If I specify that the height should be 100%, clicking on an item makes the toolbar disappear.

    Attached is my code, which is mainly cut/paste from the excellent documentation.

    Toolbar dissappears #69036


    Hello adamsch1,

    I think the issue comes from the fact that your mainSplitter has a height of 100% of its parent’s (jqxdockpanel), but it does not “take in mind” the height of the toolbar (35 px). I suggest you take a look at the help topic Fluid Layout with Fixed Header and Footer, which offers an implementation of a similar scenario.

    Best Regards,

    jQWidgets team
