QUERY: Multiple Document Interface (MDI) in webpag

Posted 07 April 2006 - 05:57 AM

I am wondering if it's possible to simulate the Multiple Document Interface
in ASP/ASP.NET webpages? Maybe using DIV layers? I am trying to create the
little document windows in an application, but in a webpage. I need
dragging, overlap, focusing, resizing capabilites. Also must be able to
encapsulate another DIV layer within this DIV layer. Is this possible?
Does anyone know a library (already-made) div/layer MDI windows for
webpages?

<div> <!-- MDI window example -->
<div style="overflow: auto; width: 584px; height: 208px">
<!-- a table/grid that's scrollable -->

Are you looking for something like http://www.meebo.com (login with an AIM account to see the draggable windows)???

I think the capability to drag and such is all DHTML.

There is basic support for that with "Web Parts" but they are a little complicated, I'm going to be writing a tutorial for dreamincode about them since there isn't much about them online right now.


But basicly what they allow you to do is create custom web controls and then you can drag and drop those custom controls to any of the define holders... Its not complete mdi support but it's still pretty cool!
