Window JSP Tag Overview

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

Getting Started


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

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method which renders the view.

    @RequestMapping(value = {"index"}, method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index() {

        return "web/window/index";

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri=""%>

Step 4 Add the window tag.

<kendo:window name="window" title="About us" draggable="true" resizable="true">
        <img src="logo.png" alt="Our logo" />
        <p>More content about us.</p>

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI Window by the handler name.

<kendo:window name="window" orientation="horizontal" open="window_open" close="window_close">

    function window_expand() {
        // Handle the expand event

    function window_collapse() {
        // Handle the collapse event


Existing Instances

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

// Put this after your Kendo Window tag declaration
$(function() {
    // Notice that the Name() of the window is used to get its client-side instance
    var windowObject = $("#window").data("kendoWindow");

Asynchronous Loading

You are able to load views asynchronously through the content attribute.

The example below demonstrates how to load the contents of the Window by using an asynchronous call.

<c:url value="/web/window/content" var="remoteUrl" />

<kendo:window name="window" title="About us" content="${remoteUrl}" />
