Windows.create with scrollbar but without toolbars


(Danijel Job) #1

Hi,

i wan’t to open a new window; either as popup, but with scrollbar, or as normal window but with disabled address bar and other toolbar’s.

Old API allows parameters to specify a window UI in detail:

{
            width       : width,
            height      : height,
            //popup       : 1,
            dialog      : 'yes',
            chrome      : 'yes',
            centerscreen: 'yes',
            menubar     : '0',
            scrollbar   : 'yey',
            resizable   : '0',
            toolbar     : '0',
            location    : '0',
            personalbar : 'yes',
            status      : 'yes'
        };

From current documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/windows/create) i don’t see that possible.

  • is that considered as a bug or a incomplete feature?
  • how window can be opened as described? (scrollbar: on, toolbars: off)

Whether a window has scrollbars or not depends on the overflow of it’s HTML content.

A WebExtension “popup” doesn’t have any bars except for the OS title bar (but currently you can’t control the title in it).

It’s not possible to open regular window with following parameters?
resizable : ‘0’,
toolbar : ‘0’,
location : ‘0’,

No. As I said, a “popup” doesn’t have navigation- or toolbar. But you can always resize it (you could of cause give the html element a fixed size).
