View Full Version : Alternative to TabPanel ?
2 Jan 2011, 10:05 AM
I am trying to use GXT in combination with a Java Applet. I would like some method of hiding the applet temporarily to move to a configuration page containing Ext widgets. I don't seem to have the option of using Tabs because my applet resets when i switch tabs, unless I use HideMode.VISIBILITY, but in another thread, it was pointed out that this hidemode is not supported in tabpanels.
Perhaps I can just use a toolbar with buttons to hide the applet and display another Panel.
What approach do you recommend?

Safari, Chrome, IE all work fine. It just seems to be Firefox where my applet reloads when I change tabs with OFFSET HideMode - any help would be greatly appreciated

I noticed that the workaround / plugin is well documented for EXT JS here:
But I wonder if there is a recommended workaround for ExtGWT.

FF restarts some JAVA Applets if it's moved outside the screen, which is done in hidemode OFFSET.
To make this work properly in FF you need to implement a new type of hide mode. It could be done by resizing the component to 1x1 pixels and place it somewhere on the screen where it's not noticeable. e.g. top left.
