View Full Version : Dialog as popup

29 Jan 2010, 3:06 AM
I have a scenario:

A viewport with some panels and on an action I'm showing a dialog.
On selecting collapse of the dialog, i'm adding the collapsed dialog to one of the panel in the viewport. On expanding the dialog I need the dialog to be removed from the panel and should be again popped up as a dialog (popup) in the center of the viewport (i.e., on top of the viewport)

How can this be accomplished. Any suggestions will be of great help.

Please post your code.

Code is quite exhaustive because this is just a part of what I'm doing.
I will explain the steps involved in this if that is enough.

A view port has a border layout
On clicking a button, a dialog is popped up.
On selecting the collapse (Event: Events.Collapse) of the dialog i am adding this dialog to a panel in the viewport.
Again on selecting the expand of the dialog i am removing the dialog from that panel.
Now the dialog has to be again popped up back as a dialog.

When i handle the expand event, and then say dialog.show, it is just showing up in the same panel hence i tried removing the dialog from the panel i added before. Now again how to show it as a dialog (popup) in the center (on top) of the screen

it looks you like to make some floting panels which can pinned to the the viewport - like in good IDEs

but: i think nobody has the time to create the code with your description until your current state.

if you make a standalone example up to the point of your problem then i think you will find more users they will help you. but i think there is nobody is willing to code a full working example for you.

Sample code is provided, i welcome ur suggestions

Button btn = new Button("Click");
btn.addSelectionListener(new SelectionListener<ButtonEvent>() {

public void componentSelected(ButtonEvent ce)
//The dialog pops up here on click

dlg = new Dialog();
dlg.setSize(400, 900);
dlg.addListener(Events.Collapse, new Listener<BaseEvent>() {

public void handleEvent(BaseEvent be)

//Added the collapsed dialog to the content panel

dlg.addListener(Events.BeforeExpand, new Listener<BaseEvent>() {

Dialog wnd = (Dialog) be.getSource();
//Collapsed panel is removed from the panel
//Need to show this dialog as a popup back again
//But wnd.show() doesn't show the dialog, it may be hidded or something
//Please suggest me how to show this dialog as a popup again
