Display the credits and version information of your Vaadin application.
The AboutBox is a beautiful way to tell your end users about your Vaadin application and give credits to the developers.
Typically installed in the main window, it presents a compact box at the top of the window that can be expanded to provide more details. Additionally, a click listener for a link can be added to provide even more information, gather feedback, or direct users to another website.
Try out different configurations in the demo!
Note: The implementation is based on CSS3 and may not currently work in every browser. Tested with FF3.6, Chrome 12, and Safari 5.
AboutBox box = new AboutBox(); getMainWindow().addComponent(box); box.setCaption("About this application..."); box.setTitle("AboutBox<br />1.0.0"); box.setDescription("Production Release. Copyright<br />Acme Inc"); box.setLinkCaption("more information");
