Class: Window

Window

A basic window that wraps a native HTML window. Provides more fine-grained control over the window state such as the ability to minimize, maximize, restore, etc. By default a window does not show upon instantiation; instead the window's show() method must be invoked manually. The new window appears in the same process as the parent window. It has the ability to listen for window specific events.
