Container

Container

new Container(optionsopt)

Source:
Properties:
Name Type Attributes Default Description
options.content String | HTMLElement <optional>

The content of the container. It can either be a string which is interpreted as HTML or a DOM node. Note that this option will remove all child nodes from the container element including those added via appendChild.

options.hiding_duration Number <optional>
0

The duration in ms of the hiding CSS transition/animation of this container. If this option is set to -1, the transition duration will be determined by the computed style, which can be rather expensive. Setting this option explicitly can therefore be an optimization.

options.showing_duration Number <optional>
0

The duration in ms of the showing CSS transition/animation of this container. If this option is set to -1, the transition duration will be determined by the computed style, which can be rather expensive. Setting this option explicitly can therefore be an optimization.

options.render_while_hiding boolean <optional>
false

If false, child widgets stops rendering while the hiding animation of this container is running.

Container represents a <DIV> element contining various other widgets or DOMNodes.

Containers have four different display states: show, hide, showing and hiding. Each of these states has a corresponding CSS class called .aux-show, .aux-hide, .aux-showing and .aux-hiding, respectively. The display state can be controlled using the methods Container#show, Container#hide and Widget#toggleHidden.

A container can keep track of the display states of its child widgets. The display state of a child can be changed using Container#hideChild, Container#showChild and Container#toggleChild.

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Default Description
options Object <optional>
{ }

An object containing initial options.

Properties
Name Type Attributes Default Description
children Array.<TK.Widget> <optional>
