Hi,

the configuration tab lists minHeight and minWidth as parameters, yet the examples for the kendoWindow implementation use height and width as parameters.  Can you please confirm which ones to use?

Hi David,

Parameters height and width are used to set initial metrics of the window.
minHeight and minWidth can be used to define the minimum size that the window can have after resizing.
You can use both of them:
window.kendoWindow({
    width: "500px",
    height: "600px",
    minWidth: 300,
    minHeight: 300,
    title: "Kendo Window",
    close: onClose
});

Okay - would be nice if you could update the documentation on that :)

Also - I'm still confused.  When I started using the control, I noticed that the height was automatically set to the height of the html loaded through ajax, but I have never been able to re-simulate this.  How can we have the window automatically size to the height of the content we load?

I think the iframes are a real pain and should be avoided to be honest.

Assuming that you are not loading your content in an iframe, you can simply remove the width/height of the window that you want to auto-resize. Usually, the most useful approach is to have a fixed width and set the window height:

$(".k-window").height("");

All the best,

Hi,

I think that the cause was that it was creating an iframe because we included the http:// address in the url.  Even though it was within the same domain (and to my personal opinion, should not be treated as a cross-domain request), it creates iframes every time.  Removing the http://domain.com prefix fixes the issue.

However - for different reasons (we sometimes do need to change domain), our url rewrite engine ALWAYS prefixes the http://domain.com part in the urls.  I think you should change the check so that it does better validate whether a URL is cross-domain or not.

We didn't link this behaviour to our recent fix (we recently noticed that some urls were not being rewritten by the engine yet, and fixed that problem), but now we have - thanks!

Indeed, as discussed in the other thread, we will. Until then, use the iframe configuration option.

Are MinHeight() and MinWidth() exposed in the Html.Kendo().Window() HTML helper method?

[Edit]
NM: Figured it out: .Resizable (p => p.MinWidth(300).MinHeight(15))
Waiting for the Kendo UI MVC docs to contain exhaustive API documentation and more how-to use cases.  The controls look good but the lack of documentation is beginning to be a show-stopper.  :(
[/Edit]

Thanks,
