Animate the scroll position of a window or element. This is an xAnimation method.
Animate an element's width and height. This is an xAnimation method.
Perform a sequence of animations of an element's position and size. This is an xAnimation method.
Using xAnimation is easy. Create an xAnimation object and call one of the animation methods. You can then use the pause/resume methods. The other methods and properties are documented here to help you write your own animation methods. xAnimation provides an animation "engine" which supports unlimited axes of animation, multiple acceleration types and an onEnd handler. The onEnd handler can return true to cause the animation to repeat. It supports a bounce-back feature. Acceleration is implemented as an array of functions so it is easy to add custom acceleration types.
Animate an element's opacity.
Animate an element's CSS property that accepts color values.
Animate an element's size. This is a minimal, time-based implementation - only supports constant velocity.
Animate an element's position over a line segment. This is a minimal, time-based implementation - only supports constant velocity.
Animate an element along an elliptical path.
Parametric Equation Animation. X(t) and Y(t) are expressions that generate the x and y coordinates during the slide. These expressions are evaluated with the javascript eval() function. Within the expression you may use any valid sub-expression that eval allows and that is in scope. For example, you may call methods of the Math object such as Math.sin(), Math.cos(), and Math.tan(). You may also reference any global variables or functions. One variable that is within scope for your expression is the parameter t. That is, t is the argument to the equations you provide. At each iteration, the variable t increments by .008 (default value). The Time argument to parametricEquation() specifies the total time for the slide in milliseconds. If the value is zero, the slide will not timeout. You can stop any slide, at any time, by this assignment: element.stop = true;. The values from your expressions are plotted on a coordinate system with it's origin at the center of the sliding element's container. The coordinates are then translated by the element's container's scrollLeft and scrollTop values. So the animation will remain visible if the user scrolls or resizes the element's container.
xSequence is an experiment with time and event based sequences.
Time-based resize (corner slide) with sinusoidal rate.
Animated, linear motion with sinusoidal or linear rate. Slide the element to the target position in the given time.

Asynchronously waits (and monitors the status) of newly created or static images. Can be called before or after window.onload, or in the HTML following the last IMG element. During monitoring of image load status, your status function will be called at each iteration. After all images successfully load, your app initialization function is called. If any image fails to load, your error function is called. You can provide error and abort images for those that fail to load.
Image rollover setup. Can not be called before the window onload event. Pass image IDs starting with 4th argument. The only html requirement is for each IMG tag to have an ID. Assumes this image file naming convention: out img = path + imgEleId + fileExt over img = path + imgEleId + ovrSuffix + fileExt
Image rollover with a third state - mousedown.


Access each element of a collection sequentially (by its numeric index) and do something with it.
For each ele/id, call the callback function passing it the element object and the count. Pass any number of ele/id's as arguments - the callback function must be the last argument.

Call a function n times.
Starts from a node and applies fnVisit up to the very first element (or up to a non-null returned value from 'fnVisit'). Children of starting node are not processed since children are consider to be "after" their parent. Optional 'data' and 'skip' work like in xWalkTree2.
Starts from a node and applies 'fnVisit' up to the very last element (or up to a non-null returned value from 'fnVisit'). Children of starting node are processed since children are consider to be "after" their parent (this is the opposite to xWalkToFirst). Optional 'data' and 'skip' work like in xWalkTree2.

Equalize the heights of any number of columns. Pass any number of pairs of elements to this function.
Determines the (largest) width and height of the 'document'.
Return and optionally set the element's height. It attempts to return and/or set the equivalent of offsetHeight. xHeight provides, effectively, a read/write version of offsetHeight. The border is included, as well as the padding, in the calculations. When returning the existing height, xHeight returns offsetHeight, which is the sum of the border, padding and style.height values. When setting a new height, xHeight finds the current border and padding values of the element and then subtracts those from the height you have specified before assigning the result to style.height.
Resize an element.
Return and optionally set the element's width. It attempts to return and/or set the equivalent of offsetWidth. xWidth provides, effectively, a read/write version of offsetWidth. The border is included, as well as the padding, in the calculations. When returning the existing width, xWidth returns offsetWidth, which is the sum of the border, padding and style.width values. When setting a new width, xWidth finds the current border and padding values of the element and then subtracts those from the width you have specified before assigning the result to style.width.

This is an unobtrusive table enhancement. It freezes the table's first row (or THEAD) and first column while the rest of the table is scrollable. If the table has a CAPTION it is removed and inserted above the frozen header.
Set the visibility of a table cell.
Set the display of a table column.
Mouseover highlight on rows and cells.
Mouseover highlight on rows and cells. Click to select a cell.
xTableHeaderFixed is an unobtrusive table enhancement. It makes a copy of a table's THEAD section. While the table is visible in its container the THEAD copy will be fixed to the top of the container, so you can scroll up and down in a long table and the header will always be visible. The container can be a window or a scrollable element. The position and size of the THEAD copy will be adjusted when the window is resized. The THEAD copy is clipped to its container's inner width. You only need to instantiate one xTableHeaderFixed object for each group of tables that have the same styling - and so those tables should have a common className, which you pass to the constructor. You must assign all of the table's styles relative to this className so that the THEAD copy will be styled just like it. It takes the widths of all THs (not TDs) in the THEAD and assigns them to the corresponding THs in the THEAD copy. When instantiating, you do not have to keep a reference to the object - it keeps a reference to itself, but if you plan on calling the 'init' or 'paint' methods later then you'll need to keep a reference to the object.
Iterates thru all rows and cols of a table and calls fnCallback for each.
Sets the display of a table row.
Assign a function to handle events which occur on either table and access corresponding TDs.


Bar-Graph Object
xCalendar is a popup date-picker. It restricts selection to a range of Dates. Days outside the range are greyed-out. Only days in-range have a mouseover effect and can be selected. If you don't set a range it will default to the current year. When the user selects a date, a date string will be assigned to the input element you specify with the 'setInput' method. When the calendar is shown, it is positioned just to the right of this element. While displayed, the user can cancel the calendar by pressing ESCape or clicking anywhere outside the calendar. If you call xCalendar's 'show' method from a click listener then you should call xStopPropagation to prevent xCalendar from being canceled immediately.
Creates a collapsible list from nested ULs or nested DIVs. A UL/DIV is a "target" - it will have its display toggled when its "trigger" is clicked (except for the outermost UL/DIV). For ULs the trigger is the UL's previous sibling element. For DIVs the trigger is also the DIV's previous sibling element, but it must be a heading element (H1, H2, etc.).
Provides a dialog box framework.
xFenster takes an existing DIV or IFRAME element and dynamically encloses it in a draggable, resizeable "window" (fenster). If the DIV or IFRAME does not exist xFenster will create it. The constructor takes a single object as an argument. The properties of this object are documented below in the "Parameters" section.
xMenu1 Object Prototype
xMenu1A Object Prototype. A variation on xMenu1. The menu slides down and up.
xMenu1B Object Prototype. A variation on xMenu1A. The menu requires a click to close and opening one closes any others that were open.
Only one branch per level can be open. Assumes btnClass element to be a direct child of an LI, tho it doesn't have to be the first child. Assumes the btn's corresponding UL to be a sibling, tho it doesn't have to be the next sibling.
A UL-based menu with unlimited levels and many other features.
A simple modal dialog box object.
xPersistentDisplay provides persistent display or non-display of elements with specific CSS class names.
A DHTML alternative to popup windows.
Accessible Categories and Sub-Categories. xSelect is another experiment in unobtrusive DHTML. xSelect implements categories and sub-categories as two SELECT controls where the contents of the second control dynamically change depending on the selection in the main control. In your HTML create a SELECT element (which I'll call s0) which contains OPTGROUP elements. Within each OPTGROUP are any number of OPTION elements. Given the id of s0, xSelect creates two SELECT elements: The 'main category' SELECT (s1) contains an OPTION for each OPTGROUP in s0. The 'sub-category' SELECT (s2) is dynamically filled with OPTGROUP OPTIONs depending on which category is selected in s1. s1 and s2 are dynamically created and appended to the same form which contains s0. s0 is hidden, s1 is positioned where s0 was, and s2 is positioned below or to the right of s1. If the browser doesn't support the objects required by xSelect, or if the user has javascript disabled, then the user will get the original SELECT which contains all main categories (as OPTGROUPs) and all sub-categories (as OPTIONs within each OPTGROUP).
This object is a nestable, dual-pane splitter. It can be horizontal or vertical. Each xSplitter has two panes. Pane1 is the left (or top) pane, and pane2 is the right (or bottom) pane. An xSplitter can be nested inside any pane of any other xSplitter. xSplitter makes no assumptions about classnames or id strings - the only requirement is that the xSplitter DIV contain 3 child DIVs in this order: pane1, pane2, and dragBar.
Downgradeable, accessible, tabbed panels.
A wrapper around an html textarea allowing manipulation of its contents using normal javascript string methods.
Different tooltips applied to groups of elements.


An unobtrusive version of xWindow
A simple alternative to xWindow.



xFenster takes an existing DIV or IFRAME element and dynamically encloses it in a draggable, resizeable "window" (fenster). If the DIV or IFRAME does not exist xFenster will create it.

Public Properties

aA copy of the xfArgs object passed to the constructor. Defaults have been assigned to undefined properties.
conThe outermost container element. To resize the fenster, set a.w and a.h then call paint(0,0).
cliThe client element contains the fenster's "content". It is a DIV or IFRAME.
mnuThe control menu element. You must provide its contents in fnMenu. See demo 4 for example usage.
tBThe title bar element.
sBThe status bar element.
minTrue if the fenster is minimized.
maxTrue if the fenster is maximized.
hidTrue if the fenster is hidden (closed).
ifrTrue if the client element is an IFRAME.

Public Methods

paint(dw,dh)Resize the fenster and all its child elements. dw,dh is added to the outer container's current size.
resize(w,h)Resize the fenster and all its child elements. The outer container is resized to w,h.
focus()Bring the fenster to the top and highlight its title and status bars.
href(url)Set or return the contained IFRAME's "location.href" property.
hide()Set the fenster's container to "display:none" and focus the fenster that was previously focused. This method is called when the user clicks the "close" icon.
show()Set the fenster's container to "display:block" and call the fenster's focus method.
status(s)Set or return the fenster's statusbar innerHTML.
title(s)Set or return the fenster's titlebar innerHTML.
destroy()Remove the fenster from the DOM, remove all internal references to the fenster, and unregister all its event listeners. This method is automatically called on each fenster when the window unload event occurs.
minimize()Minimize the fenster.
maximize()Maximize the fenster.
restore()Restore the fenster's pre-maximized or pre-minimized size and position.
mnuHide()Hide the fenster's control menu.

Discussions & Tests

13Nov2010viewtopic.php?id=25: Forum discussion on xFenster. There are many others.


16Nov2010 A fenster's move/resize/minimize/maximize is restricted to the boundary of its co-ordinate system. Its position and/or size is adjusted when the window is resized. There are three different co-ordinate systems:
1. Fixed - The boundary is defined by the viewport.
2. Absolute with a fence - The boundary is defined by the
   position and size of the fence element.
3. Absolute with no fence - The boundary's width is defined by
   the viewport and its height is defined by the document.
xFenster "static" properties:
- "xFenster.instances" is an object. When an xFenster is created
  a property is added to the object which references that xFenster
  object. The name of the property is the same as the clientId.
  So you do not have to maintain your own references to instances.
- "xFenster.minimized" is an array of all minimized fensters.
- "xFenster.nextZ" is the next z-index used to focus a fenster.
- "xFenster.focused" is the currently focused fenster.
xFenster "static" methods:
- xFenster.all()
- xFenster.showAll()
- xFenster.hideAll()
- xFenster.paintAll()
- xFenster.restoreAll()
- xFenster.minimizeAll()
- xFenster.maximizeAll()
- xFenster.mask(on,xf)
- xFenster.getBounds(xf)
- xFenster.fitToBounds(xf)
- xFenster.fitMinToBounds(xf)
- xFenster.inBounds(xf,dx,dy,dw,dh)
TODO and Misc. Notes
- Much of the code assumes all fensters have the same boundary.
  This may or may not be a problem - depends on your application.
- fitToBounds works well but only makes fensters smaller, not
  larger. This seems unintuitive.
- Should maximized fensters cover, or not cover, any minimized
  fensters? Currently they do. Perhaps the top of the first
  minimized fenster should be considered the bottom of the
- Tile and cascade could be implemented but there are many
  implications to consider.


21: 13Mar2011Added support for a basic "control menu". Also updated "xfenster.css". See: http://cross-browser.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=828
20: 13Nov2010This object has been completely reworked - it is not backwards-compatible. Many improvements and new features. Used ideas and code from forum members. Updated the demos. Updated the documentation in this file.
19.2: 13Feb2010R19 is still experimental, see '/x/lib/xfenster19.2.js'. Added this on 17Aug2010: I'm afraid I'm getting a little behind on this project. It looks like I started adding some contributions by user 'hmel' - I'm not sure how far I got with it, but it appears to be working. Demos 5 and 6 are now using it. It also looks like I reverted back to using '_i' for the instance reference - I guess I can't make up my mind on that :-)
19: 16Feb09R19 is still experimental, see '/x/lib/xfenster19.1.js'. Arguments are passed as an object and an onDragEnd callback was added.
18: 29jan09Two assignments to ele.style.borderWidth were not appending 'px'.
17: 19Aug07There was a typo on line 27. A ')' where it should not have been.
16: 6Aug07For previous rev history see xFenster2. This rev has many improvements and are documented above.
