Trying to display a web page in a window.

I am trying to use a button to open a new vaadin window and am having trouble displaying a web page in the window. I am trying to figure out how to get nodeWindow to display the External resource.

Here is my code.

            Button button = new Button(caption, new Button.ClickListener() {

                @Override
                public void buttonClick(ClickEvent event) {
                    Window nodeWindow = new Window("Node: " + caption);
                    new ExternalResource("http://www.google.com");
                    nodeWindow.setModal(true);
                    nodeWindow.setStyleName(Reindeer.WINDOW_LIGHT);
                    nodeWindow.setHeight("50%");
                    nodeWindow.setWidth("50%");
                    getUI().addWindow(nodeWindow);
                }

            });
            button.setStyleName(Reindeer.BUTTON_LINK);
            return button;
        }

How about displaying the ExternalResource in a
BrowserFrame
component?

Thought of that as well. I am new to vaadin and am unsure of how to go about displaying the browserframe inside of the Window.

I was able to get this to work with the following code, but am running into another issue. The site that I am opening up in the BrowserFrame is an https site that requires a login. The site comes up fine along with the login page, however after a login, the BrowserFram window is blank. Any suggestions?

        @Override
        public Object generateCell(Table source, Object itemId,
                Object columnId) {
            final String caption = container.getItem(itemId).getBean()
                    .getNodeLabel();
            final Byte nodeid = container.getItem(itemId).getBean()
                    .getNodeId();
            
            final BrowserFrame browser = new BrowserFrame("Browser",
                    new ExternalResource("https://nms.company.com/nms/element/node.jsp?node=" + nodeid));
                browser.setWidth("100%");
                browser.setHeight("100%");
            

                
                
            Button button = new Button(caption , new Button.ClickListener() {

                @Override
                public void buttonClick(ClickEvent event) {
                    Window nodeWindow = new Window("Node: " + caption, browser);
                    nodeWindow.setModal(true);
                    nodeWindow.setStyleName(ChameleonTheme.ACCORDION_OPAQUE);
                    nodeWindow.setHeight("75%");
                    nodeWindow.setWidth("75%");
                    nodeWindow.
                    getUI().addWindow(nodeWindow);
                }

            });
            button.setStyleName(ChameleonTheme.BUTTON_LINK);
            return button;
        }

It could be that the website intentionally prevents embedding, some websites such as Google Maps do that. Well, I suppose it could be unintentional as well.

Otherwise, there should not be difference in displaying a web page in a iframe (BrowserWindow) and as an actual browser window.

Even though this might be very late response to the actual query, it might help some other who face similar problems…
