Warning
From version 24, the hideshow control is now named the "Drawer control".
Overview
The Drawer control can contain other controls and it is intended to make UI design easier. It can be expanded in order to display (or not) the integrated controls. The collapse/expand operation of control can be done:
  • by clicking the control title,
  • by programming.

Creating a "Drawer" control in a page

To create a "Drawer" control in a page:
  1. On the "Creation" pane, in the "Containers" group, click "Drawer".
  2. Click where you want to create the control in the page. The control appears in the editor.
    The created Drawer control is empty: the upper section (whose size can be adapted via the sizing handle) receives the clicks and triggers the collapse/expand operation of lower section.
  3. Drop on the Drawer control the different controls that must appear/disappear when it is used.
To view the control characteristics, select "Description" in the popup menu of the control.
Characteristics of a Drawer control
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser code

Drawer control found in a page

  • When the Drawer control is in edit mode in the page editor, it always appears in its maximum size.
  • The operations for collapsing/expanding the control always come with an animation if they are performed:
    • in browser code.
    • in server code in an AJAX event (or process).
  • When the Drawer control is collapsed, the controls located below it do not automatically move up except if they are positioned (as well as the Drawer control) in a cell that uses the relative positioning of controls. See Cell control for more details.

Drawer Control not working properly
Make sure the drawer control is wider than the contents you are moving below the drawer control.
