Window PHP Class Overview

The Kendo UI Window for PHP is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Window widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI Window for PHP.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a Window.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');
    $window->title("About Alvar Aalto")
        ->draggable(true)
        ->width(600)
        ->resizable(true);
    ?>

Step 3 Place the content between the startContent and endContent method calls.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');
    $window->title("About Alvar Aalto")
        ->draggable(true)
        ->width(600)
        ->resizable(true)
        ->startContent();
    ?>

        Static content of the Window

    <?php
        $window->endContent();
    ?>

Step 4 Output the Window by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $window->render();
    ?>

Asynchronous Loading of Contents

You are able to load views asynchronously through the content method, demonstrated in the example below.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');

    $window->content(array(
            "url" => "ajaxContent.html"
        ));

    echo $window->render();
    ?>

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all Window events.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');

    // The 'window_open' JavaScript function will handle the 'open' event of the window
    $window->open('window_open');

    echo $window->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    function window_open() {
        // Handle the open event
    }
    </script>

Provide Inline Code

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe to events by providing inline JavaScript code.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');

    // Provide inline JavaScript code that will handle the 'open' event of the window
    $window->open('function() { /* Handle the open event */ }');

    echo $window->render();
    ?>

Reference

Client-Side Instances

You are able to reference an existing Window instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, use the Window API to control its behavior.

Example
    <?php
    $window = new \Kendo\UI\Window('window');
    echo $window->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    $(function() {
        // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the window
        var window = $("#window").data("kendoWindow");
    });
    </script>
