Using outlines: how to define a window size

hi,

i'm using outlines for web navigation.
by cklcikcing on an entry a predefined page is displayed
in the web browser.

question:
how can i define the size and scrollbar/resizing?

i asked a similar question befor by clicking on a hotspot.
there i could use a java script do realize this.
in the outline designer i can't find something similar like this.


thanks

Did you look into the frames and framesets for the resizing and scroll bar options ???

are you embedding the page in a frame on a frameset ?

Are you looking at these scrolls or something else ?

Make your OutlineEntry of type URL.
Place into entry formula this:
DbPath:=@Replace(@Subset(@DbName;-1);"\\";"/");
"javascript:window.open(\'/"+DbPath+"/myPage?OpenPage\',\'title\',\'height=200,width=200\')"

Extend the parameters of new window as you like.

Cheers,
zvonko

Hi Arun :-)
How do you think should I pass you before 100K <|;-)

Sorry hreinart, little Schoenheitsfehler :-)
Use this one:
DbPath:=@Replace(@Subset(@DbName;-1);"\\";"/");
"javascript:nw=window.open(\'/"+DbPath+"/myPage?OpenPage\',\'title\',\'height=200,width=200\');window.reload"

And do not be disturbed by the conversations with my buddy Arun :-)

hi all,

thanks for the very very quick response.

arunkumar:
i use a frameset and the outline is viewable in the left frame, everything started from there will be displayed in the right frame.
if i would follow your suggestion, all pages will be displayed in the same way.
i'm looking for a solution to determine this individually frame by frame.

zvonko:
i'll try it out now.

hi zvonko:

which variables will i have to replace with the real names?
i found "mypage".

ArunkumarCommented:
Whatever!

zvonkoCommented:
This is the only used name you have to set.

Additionally you have to adapt the new window parameters to your needs.

If you are looking for window.open parameters here is a good description:

hi zvonko:

if i paste your suggestion in the url option at the outline, the browser returns: page cannot be displayed.
the brower url show: dbpath:=@Replace(@Subset(@DbName;-1);

???

zvonkoCommented:
what Type is your OutlineEntry?

0
 
hreinartAuthor Commented:
URL

zvonkoCommented:
Then is the problem based in the quotation characters.
Please cut and paste this version for test:
DbPath:=@Replace(@Subset(@DbName;-1);"\\";"/");
"javascript:nw=window.open(\'/"+DbPath+"/myPage?OpenPage\',\'title\',\'height=200,width=200\');window.reload"

And take care that you can not paste this code into Value entry field. You have to paste it into EditFormula window which is opening when you click on "@" button, right?

In Value field you have to see this string: Computed

hi zvonko,

i had to leave for some hours.
it's working great!!!

in case i should have pasted this into the formual window before, this could be the reason for the first problem i had.

thanks a lot

works exactly as needed.
the rest of the needed parameters should be available on the mentioned web site.

hi zvonko,

it's really strange...
i send now about 2 hours and can't get it to work again.

i tried to enhance the open parameters.
now whenever i paste the code, it never says "computed " anymore. if i look into the formular i see this:

"

at the beginning and end of the line.
if i delete it, it says computed.
but by pressing the link it says: http 404 not found.

the link contains :

javascript:nw=window.open('/Test\home.nsf/kontakt?OpenPage','title','height=200,width=200');window.reload


where is the problem???


thanks
