Method Detail

checkBrowserAndRedirect

public static void checkBrowserAndRedirect()
Check whether the browser is supported by the Isomorphic Smart GWT system. Behavior depends upon the value of unsupportedBrowserAction: If redirecting to another page is necessary, and no explicit URL is provided we will use defaultUnsupportedBrowserURL.

This method is commonly called as part of the skinning logic after page load.

Parameters:

registerKey

public static void registerKey(java.lang.String keyName,
                               KeyCallback callback)
Deprecated. in favor of registerKey(String, PageKeyHandler)

Fire some action when the Page receives a keyPress event from a certain key. Note that if a widget has keyboard focus, this action will fire only after any widget-level keyPress handlers have fired and bubbled the event up to the top of their ancestor chain. Multiple actions can be registered to fire on a single keyPress using this method. This differs from calling Page.setEvent() with the "keyPress" events registered via setEvent() will fire before widget level handlers respond to the event, and will fire for every keyPress event, not just those triggered by some specific key or key-combination.

Parameters:
keyName - the key name
callback - the callback function

registerKey

public static void registerKey(KeyIdentifier keyIdentifier,
                               KeyCallback callback)
Deprecated. in favor of registerKey(KeyIdentifier, PageKeyHandler)

Fire some action when the Page receives a keyPress event from a certain key. Note that if a widget has keyboard focus, this action will fire only after any widget-level keyPress handlers have fired and bubbled the event up to the top of their ancestor chain. Multiple actions can be registered to fire on a single keyPress using this method. This differs from calling Page.setEvent() with the "keyPress" events registered via setEvent() will fire before widget level handlers respond to the event, and will fire for every keyPress event, not just those triggered by some specific key or key-combination.

Parameters:
keyIdentifier - the key identifier
callback - the callback function

registerKey

public static void registerKey(java.lang.String keyName,
                               PageKeyHandler callback)
Fire some action when the Page receives a keyPress event from a certain key. Note that if a widget has keyboard focus, this action will fire only after any widget-level keyPress handlers have fired and bubbled the event up to the top of their ancestor chain. Multiple actions can be registered to fire on a single keyPress using this method. This differs from calling Page.setEvent() with the "keyPress" events registered via setEvent() will fire before widget level handlers respond to the event, and will fire for every keyPress event, not just those triggered by some specific key or key-combination. To attempt to cancel the native behavior of a browser-level event, call cancel() on the PageKeyHandler. Note, however, that not all browsers support cancelling all native actions, and that cancelling certain native key shortcuts can be annoying to end users (like cancelling a key shortcut used to create a new bookmark, for example).

Parameters:
keyName - the key name
callback - a cancellable PageKeyHandler instance

registerKey

public static void registerKey(KeyIdentifier keyIdentifier,
                               PageKeyHandler callback)
Fire some action when the Page receives a keyPress event from a certain key. Note that if a widget has keyboard focus, this action will fire only after any widget-level keyPress handlers have fired and bubbled the event up to the top of their ancestor chain. Multiple actions can be registered to fire on a single keyPress using this method. This differs from calling Page.setEvent() with the "keyPress" events registered via setEvent() will fire before widget level handlers respond to the event, and will fire for every keyPress event, not just those triggered by some specific key or key-combination.

Note, however, that not all browsers support cancelling all native actions, and that cancelling certain native key shortcuts can be annoying to end users (like cancelling a key shortcut used to create a new bookmark, for example).

Parameters:
keyIdentifier - the key identifier
callback - a cancellable PageKeyHandler instance

unregisterKey

public static void unregisterKey(java.lang.String keyName)
Clears an action registered to fire on a specific keyPress event via the registerKey(String, KeyCallback) method.

Parameters:
keyName - name of key to clear registry entries for

updateViewport

public static void updateViewport(java.lang.Float scale,
                                  java.lang.Integer width,
                                  java.lang.Integer height,
                                  java.lang.Boolean scalable)
This method only applies to browsers who support the special viewport meta html tag such as Safari running on the iPhone.

This method will dynamically change the viewport configuration, allowing you to set an initial size or scale level and enable / disable user-scaling. Typically this method will be called with a value for scale, width or height rather than passing in values for all three properties.
See the apple documentation about configuring the viewport for more information:

Parameters:
scale - Desired scale level where 1 indicates no scaling (each CSS pixel will be displayed using 1px on the physical device). Pass in null to avoid setting this property.
width - Desired viewport width in pixels. This indicates how many pixels should fit within the device screen. Pass in null to avoid setting this property.
height - Desired viewport height in pixels. This indicates how many pixels should fit within the device screen. Pass in null to avoid setting this property.
scalable - Should the user be able to scale the application (using pinch gestures, double tapping, rotating the device, etc.)?
