An extended window that allows you to add any components to the window header. Most suitable for adding minimize/maximize buttons.

Ever wanted to place extra buttons in the window header, such as a simple minimize or maximize button? Now you can!

The toolbar area accepts any Vaadin component, so you could even place a Table there, but that's not really what this component was designer for ;)

The demo application contains an example implementation for the maximize and minimize functions, with an additional custom button in the toolbar. The Animator add-on is also used to provide the smooth minimize animation.

DEPENDENCIES -CSSInject 0.11 is required - http://vaadin.com/addon/cssinject

Sample code

      final ToolbarWindow w = new ToolbarWindow("Window w/ Tools");
      w.center();
      w.setWidth("400px");
      w.setHeight("300px");

      Button b = new Button(null, new Button.ClickListener() {
            public void buttonClick(ClickEvent event) {
                w.setHeight("0px");
            }
        });
        b.setDescription("Minimize");
        b.setIcon(new ClassResource("minimize.png", this));
        b.addStyleName(Reindeer.BUTTON_LINK);
        tools.addComponent(b);

        b = new Button(null, new Button.ClickListener() {
            public void buttonClick(ClickEvent event) {
                if (w.getWidth() != 100) {
                    w.setSizeFull();
                } else {
                    w.setWidth("400px");
                    w.setHeight("300px");
                }
                w.center();
                event.getButton().focus();
            }
        });
        b.setDescription("Maximize");
        b.setIcon(new ClassResource("maximize.png", this));
        b.addStyleName(Reindeer.BUTTON_LINK);
        tools.addComponent(b);

        w.setToolbar(tools);

        getMainWindow().addWindow(w);

Version

Initial release.

Internet Explorer 6 is not supported, and most likely never will be. The reason is that the CSS used to position the toolbar above the window header doesn't work in IE6.
