Description

This zimlet shows-up as a panel item and will display a simple custom dialog on a single or double-click. This example uses a template to create the HTML mark-up for the dialog. The Zimlet Definition File includes the compiled template file Simple.template.js using the <include> element.

</zimlet>

Creating the Dialog

Here is snippet from the Zimlet Handler Object (_displayDialog() method) where we create and show the dialog:

  var sDialogTitle = this.getMessage("simpledialog_dialog_title"); // get i18n resource string
  var sStatusMsg = this.getMessage("simpledialog_status_launch"); // get i18n resource string
	
  this.pView = new DwtComposite(this.getShell()); //creates an empty div as a child of main shell div
  this.pView.setSize("250", "150"); // set width and height
  this.pView.getHtmlElement().style.overflow = "auto"; // adds scrollbar
  this.pView.getHtmlElement().innerHTML = this._createDialogView(); // insert html to the dialogbox
	
  // pass the title, view & buttons information to create dialog box
  this.pbDialog = new ZmDialog({title:sDialogTitle, view:this.pView, parent:this.getShell(), standardButtons:[DwtDialog.DISMISS_BUTTON]});

  this.pbDialog.setButtonListener(DwtDialog.DISMISS_BUTTON, new AjxListener(this, this._okBtnListener)); 

  this.pbDialog.popup(); //show the dialog

The _createDialogView() method creates the HTML mark-up by getting the template:

/**
 * Creates the dialog view.
 * 
 */
com_zimbra_simpledialogtemplateHandlerObject.prototype._createDialogView =
function() {
    var html = AjxTemplate.expand("com_zimbra_simpledialogtemplate.templates.Simple#Main");		
    return html;
};
