View Full Version : Window size and resize issues

23 Nov 2007, 8:08 AM

I modified the sample complex layout to try to create an MDI type interface, basically I removed the rightmost column, and made the center area an empty container instead of a tab panel. Now I am opening new Windows in the center area, which seems to work great, with the following 2 minor issues:

1. when I specify and height and width in the new Window config options, they are ignored and window is seemingly randomly sized. I can call setSize after I create the window to set the intial size, though.

2. I have constrained = true to force the window to stay inside its container, which works great, but I can resize the window outside the container, which screws it up. I thought constrain would prevent this.

So, I am writing something to get the container size and prevent resizing outside its limits, but I think constrain should handle this.

Anyone have any ideas why the initial size doesn't work?

1. Can you post your sample code? (Just the relevant portion where you create the Window)

2. Just a link to a thread I started for a similar problem, with no replies so far: http://extjs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17024

Note, I tried this without layout: fit, that is the only other option I tried.

It does not take the intial 400 x 400 size, and I can resize it outside its container.

To see my working start, go to

click New - Implant
There may be something wrong with my overall layout I have created

var windows = new Ext.WindowGroup();
var implantform = function(config) {
var win = windows.get('brian');
if( ! win )
var win = new Ext.Window({
id: 'brian',
manager: windows,
minimizable: true,
maximizable: true,
width: 400,
height: 400,
html : '<p>Something useful would be in here.</p>',
constrain: true,
renderTo: 'mdi',
layout: 'fit',
autoScroll: true

win.setSize({height: 400,width:400});
