View Full Version : constrain window to a tabItem

24 May 2009, 11:10 AM
i want to create a window that only lives in a certain TabItem. It is only visible, when this TabItem is active and its position is contrained to this TabItem only.

In Ext JS i think there is a parameter "renderTo", is there something similar in ext gwt?

I yet tried to use tabItem.add(window) and window.setConstrain(true), but i dont get the desired result. The window is contrained to the Viewport, but not to the TabItem.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this works in 1.x, but I've used in 2.x

protected void onRender(Element el, int pos) {
super.onRender(el, pos);

// confine dragging to container element bounds
getDraggable().setContainer( (Component) getParent() );
