Related post: Hide a docked View with url parameter
How would I open a particular View without showing the header dock configured in the shared settings?
I’m showing Perspective pages within Vision and I don’t want the header showing in the Perspective project when displayed within Vision. The only way that I’ve been able to do this is by:
- creating a session prop that uses the clock (
now(1000)) seconds to create a 1s clock signal (
toInt(getSeconds(now(1000))) % 2)
- create a page url param called
- create a custom prop on the View that binds to the session clock signal with an attached on-change script that checks the showHeader value and if False, then close the dock.
It’s a horrible solution, but it’s all that I can get working… Startup events happen before the url param value is passed into the variable, so I can’t use this. I tried attaching a change script directly to the showHeader prop as well, but it never seems to fire… I’m out of ideas. I hate the idea of there being a script firing every second for no reason. I also don’t like that the header shows for a brief second before closing
You’re mixing terminology. VIEWS do not have shared docks - only PAGES do. so if you want to open a View then you just need to use
system.perspective.navigate(view='<view_path>'). If you want to open a PAGE without the shared Docked View you need to override the shared setting.
Overriding a shared Docked View:
You should see a configuration which looks like this, with the shared DOcked View greyed-out:
You should click the “+ Add” button, and configure a Docked View which uses the same view as the shared Docked View, but you should set the
Display setting to “onDemand”, and set the
Handle property to “hide”.
I think I’ve seen you post other threads in relation to this same issue, and I really think that your best option is going to be to have Vision-specific urls for these pages which have this configuration.
Awesome, that’s exactly what I’m after! Cheers.
Correct, yes, or rather being lazy as, at least up until now, I have only ever used a single page to show a single view (and I don’t thibk that will ever change since you can’t use the browser back button intuitively if you don’t have a page per view)
I did try this at one stage, but I wasn’t aware that you could override the shared setting like you mentioned. But this certainly does now look like the best option.
