Enterprise Browser 3.0


The NativeToolbar method let you create and remove a toolbar at runtime.

Enabling the API

There are two methods of enabling the Nativetoolbar API:

  • Include all ebapi modules
  • Include only the required API modules

For either of these methods, you'll need to include files from the /Enterprise Browser/JavaScript Files/Enterprise Browser directory on the computer that you installed the Enterprise Browser.

Include all JS API modules

To include all JS APIs, copy the ebapi-modules.js file to a location accessible by the app's files and include a reference to the JavaScript file in the app's HTML. For instance, to include the modules file in the app's index.html, copy the file to the same directory as that index.html and add the following line to the HTML's HEAD section:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="ebapi-modules.js"></script>

Note: that the pathing for this file is relative to the current page.

This will define the EB class within the page. Any page you need to use the modules will need to have the .js file included in this fashion.

Include only the required modules

To include single APIs, you must first include the ebapi.js in your HTML as well as the API file you want to use. For instance, to use the Nativetoolbar API, I would add the following code to my HTML file(s), assuming the API files have been copied to the same directory as the HTML.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="ebapi.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="eb.nativetoolbar.js"></script>

The ebapi.js file is necessary for all single API inclusions.


create(ARRAY toolbarElements, HASH toolBarProperties)

Creates a new toolbar and removes the current toolbar and replaces it with this one. Any images used for UI elements should be specified by either an absolute path. i.e. '/sdcard/nmt/'


  • toolbarElements : ARRAY

    Array of Toolbar elements. Do not create more than five elements for maximum portability.Toolbar elements are not scrollable, so if some buttons will not fit into the screen dimensions, they will be invisible.

    • toolbarElement : HASH

      Properties of Toolbar elements. Either :icon or :label must be specified. If both are specified, :icon is drawn and :label is discarded.

      • label : STRING

        Visible label to display instead of an icon.For predefined actions, icon will be displayed. Android note: for predefined actions no label will be displayed.

      • action : STRING

        URL to call when button is pressed or special value.It may be a JavaScript method to call: 'javascript: methodOnButton();'.

        Possible Values :

        Add a separator to the toolbar. If only one separator is specified, then elements after separator will be right-aligned. If more then one separator is added: on WM/CE, platform dependent separator will be displayed, on Android center-aligned groups will be created. Platforms: WM, CE, Win32, Android
        Exit the application.
        Exit the application.
        Navigate to Home page, defined in configuration file.
        Refresh current page.
        Perform back action or execute browser back.
        Display Log View window. Platforms: WM, CE, Win32, Android
        Expand application window to full screen. Platforms: WM, CE, Win32, Android
        Minimize application window. Platforms: WM, CE, Win32
        Display software keyboard window.Set `EB.System.keyboardState` to `EB.System.KEYBOARD_AUTOMATIC` to use this element. Platforms: WM
      • icon : STRING

        Icon absolute path, from root of the device. For example, on Android your path would look somethin like "/mnt/internal/filename.png" and for Windows Mobile it would look like "/Program Files/filename.png". If the path is not set correctly, the toolbar may not display correctly. Android: Icons must be no more than 30x30 pixels and must be in .png format. Windows Mobile: Icons can be any size, but all icons should have same size (default - 48x48). .png and .bmp formats are supported.

      • width : INTEGER

        Button width in pixel. Used to define separator width when more than one separator specified. Platforms: WM

  • toolBarProperties : HASH
