Automatically close the window when user clicks on background.

Disable window move

Specify if the window cannot be moved by the user.

Dock location

Specify which edge of the screen the window is docked to.

Dock window

Docked windows 'stick' to an edge of the screen and remain in place even when the page is scrolled.

Has pointer icon

Specify if the window has a pointer icon that points to the element that was clicked to show the window.

Lock overlay CSS class name

Specify the CSS class name to use for the overlay that is displayed behind the window. The overlay prevents the user from clicking on controls that are outside the window. Leave blank, or specify <Default> to use the default style. Specify <Invisible> to create an invisible overlay (has no color, but user still prevented from clicking on controls off the window). By specifying a class that has a 'background' attribute, you can control the color of the overlay. For example: background: rgba(0,0,0,0) to create a transparent overlay.

Pointer position

Specify the window edge that has the pointer icon. If you select 'Auto' the most appropriate edge is automatically selected.

Sub-theme

Optional. Specify a sub-theme for the window. The sub-theme can select can select a different pre-defined window 'look'. If you leave this property blank the 'base' sub-theme is automatically selected.

Window background style

Specify the inline-style for the window background.

Window height

Specify the window height. Use CSS syntax. For example: 3in, 10cm, 200px. If you do not set the height, the window will resize automatically to accommodate the window contents. To set the window size so that it sizes automatically to accomodate the window contents, but does NOT EXCEED a certain height if the content is large, specify the window height as: max: size. For example: max: 300px

Window is resizable

Specify if the window is resizable.

Window name

Set to <Default> to give the window a default name. If you give the window an explicit name (which must be unique), then you can easily get a pointer to the execute methods of the window object. Click the smart field for tips on how to name your window and for information on how to get a pointer to the window object.

Window position

Specify where the window will be shown.

Window title

Specify the window title. The window title can contain data from fields in the current record. Enclose field values in curly parens. e.g. Customer - {lastname}. To reference values from a column in a List control use this syntax: {LIST::ListName::ColumnName}(e.g.{LIST::MYLIST1::LASTNAME})

Window title has close button

Specify if the window title has a Close button.

Window title position

Specify if the window title should appear at the top or bottom of the window.

Window title show

Specify if the window title should be shown or hidden.

Window type

Specify the window type. Popup windows will be shown in a movable window on the page. Dropdown windows have no title bar and cannot be moded. By default, Dropdown windows open directly below the control that you click to open the window. Note, an Ajax window will NOT be blocked by a browser's internal protection against popup windows.

Window width

Specify the window height. Use CSS ssyntax. For example: 3in, 10cm, 200px. If you do not set the width, the window will resize automatically to accommodate the window contents.
