Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Tabs Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Support Case Month: June 2012

Hi,

I'm trying to put a google map into a web tab. I've managed to get the map to appear, but it isn't resizing when the tab is activated.

I've done some extensive searching and have come across many different ways to solve it, but none of them seem to work.

So I'm wondering if you can tell me how I can get the map to automatically resize to fill the whole div container, when it's tab is activated?

Many thanks if you can solve this very frustrating problem for me.

Debbie

Hi Kostas,

Unfortunately, the website is still in development mode on my machine, so I can't give you an url to it.

Also, it's not actually a problem with the tabs project.  It's just that I can't figure out how to make a google map appear inside a tab correctly and was wondering whether you had come across this before and already had a solution to it.

The Google map js seems to be working OK, but the map itself appears as just a small square in the top left of the div.

By all accounts on the forums, this can be solved by triggering the map's resize event whenever the tab is activated.  So, what I need to know is how I can do that with your tabs.  It would need to be done dynamically, rather than included in the project, because only a few pages have a map, but the majority of pages would need to act normally.

Could you tell me how I could achieve this resizing event only on specific pages, please?

Warm Regards,
Debbie

Dear Debbie,

I am afraid that there is no way currently to make a JS call when the selected tab changes. I guess the best solution would be to use the “external url” and keep the google map in a separate page.

This way, the page will load into the tab only when it is shown for the first time and the map should appear properly.

Hi Kostas,

That's an interesting idea, but can you confirm whether I've understood you correctly?

Are you saying create another page and get the tab to call it when it is activated?  If so, does that mean it is opened in a frame or something like that.

I tried to use your Modal Windows Builder to call the google maps url last night thinking that could be a way to avoid using a tab.  Unfortunately, it seems that google don't like their pages being displayed inside a frame, because all I got was an error message to that effect.  Grrr, and I thought I was being smart.

Will you be including a way to get your tabs to perform a custom script when an event triggers in a future release?

Warm Regards,
Debbie

Dear Debbie,

Well, if Google Maps do not like being in a frame, then I guess my suggestion would not work.

Hi Kostas,

Anyway, I did manage to get the maps working by using your suggestion of creating a separate page that accepts the lat and long as parameters and linking to it using external url on the div of the first page.

So thank you very much for your suggestion, because I can now finally move on to the next part of the application.

Warm Regards,
Debbie

November 29th, 2012Are your products "responsive"?

Initial Email Subject: "Responsive" menus
Support Case Month: September 2012

Hello Support:
Since the trend is to develop "responsive" web sites that will automatically resize itself depending on the media (iphone, ipad, etc.) used by customers, will AllWebMenu also resize itself to meet the different resolutions of the different media?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

We are actually in the process of creating Responsive Menus for AllWebMenus. The plan is to release this in the beginning of October.

The new feature will allow you to create different styles for your menu and specify when (for which resolutions) each style will be used.

If you want I can add your email to a notify list, so that you will be among the first to know about this once it is ready.

Hello Kostas:

Yes, please add me to the mailing list once it is ready. I really need them ASAP. Thanks for letting me know.

Will you be adding responsive features to the other likno products?

Pamela

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

Well, most of our other products are already “responsive” in the sense that you can leave them at “auto” width.

What exactly did you have in mind, and for which product?

Hello Kostas:

I was thinking about the Web Accordion, Web Tabs and Web Scroller being responsive. Therefore, setting the width to "auto" will make these products responsive?

Pamela

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Pamela,

If you set the width to “auto” then the control (Accordion, Tab or Scroller) will take the full width of its parent element.

Hence if the parent element is responsive and has different width depending on the screen size, the control will also have a different width.

Note that not all controls can do this “run-time” (meaning they may need a refresh of the page to adjust their size instead of adjusting “live” while you resize your browser), but this is not a restriction for responsiveness as the iPad or any smaller screen will not change its size!

Initial Email Subject: Menu scaling
Support Case Month: November 2012

I have searched and can not find an answer to why this problem is happening.

I just need to know if this is a bug or if it is even possible.  If it is possible I have no problem paying for support to get the answer.

I have a AWM in a WordPress site.  When I scale the browser window smaller the menu does not scale with it. 

I read on your blog that this is just how it works....but I find it hard to believe that you would think anyone would want to use a menu that wont scale with the site.  Especially now with all the ipad and smartphone out there.  If this is true...I just wasted money updating my software because I will just use the menu from wordpress.  I would look so unprofessional using this great looking menu that wont scale.

I am hoping you will tell me that it is possible...if so I will renew my support plan...if not....you have lost a long time user and I wish I wouldn't have wasted money I really don't have to throw away.

Thank you,

Marilyn

Dear Marilyn,

When you say “scaling the browser” do you mean that you resize the browser window? If so, then what you are really after is a “responsive menu”.

This is a relatively new concept that was introduced based on the fact that most tablets have a smaller screen.

AllWebMenus does not currently support responsive menus, but we are already working on it and it is going to be the next big addition in less than 3 weeks. With this feature you will be able to design a number of different menus and have each one display depending on the browser size. Do you want me to add you in the notify list for when this feature is available?
