bbUI.js - Master Detail Example

[ Edited ]

  I have a question about the bbUI.js (0.9.3) Master Detail example.


  In the masterDetail.htm  and masterDetail.js files, where are the masterDetail_initialLoad, masterDetail_onResize, masterDetail_getHeight, and masterDetail_onUnload functions called? Are they implied in the bbui-0.9.3.js by the pushScreen function? 


  I looked for documentation, but since this is new, I couldn't find it?

Hi Bluenoser


The masterDetail_initialLoad function is called in the index.html file


onscreenready: function(element, id) {
	if (id == 'dataOnLoad') {
	} else if (id == 'masterDetail') {

That will call the others functions.

The unload i'm not so sure.

The script line in the masterdetails html file is


<script id="masterDetailJS" src="js/masterDetail.js" onunload=""></script>

I'm not sure if it automatically detects the unload function or if someone forgot to put it there Smiley Happy

My bad... the onunload of the <script> tag is supposed to be assigned to this function.  I logged a bug for this and will fix it this morning
