» Current xWinLib version: 2.1 (see release notes)
xWinLib is implemented by adding two lines of code to your web page in order to gain full access to the framework’s features, and it seamlessly integrates with any server-side language, including: PHP, JSP, ASP, PERL, .NET, VB, APX, FGL, RUBY, PYTHON, and more...
Some of the features found within the xWinLib library include:
- Full windowing functionality provides for the creation, manipulation, and interaction of window objects. Windows can move, resize, animate, encapsulate, communicate, and interact with each other and other dom objects.
- Transparent windows with variable transparency from 0-100%.
- Support for modal windows (sometimes known as Modal Dialog boxes or Light Boxes). Modal Windows force the user to respond to the action in the window before continuing. The xWinLib library can use standard dom-based elements within the window or can encapsulate any web page or external website.
- Custom border styles, including line type, thickness, color, and more.
- Child window support provides optimized integration of individual window elements associated with a super-classed parent. Child windows live and die by their parents and exist within the boundaries of their parent windows. They’re perfect for creating advanced windowing components.
- Advanced tooltips for windows and individual HTML elements.
- Custom window themes provide an extensible method for creating enhanced window styles that can be mixed and matched in real-time. Default themes include XP, Vista, Mac, and others in addition to a customizable template for creating your own.

- The xWinLib library supports the concepts behind with the Data Portability initiative, dataportability.org, providing seamless and open access to important information. Key data elements within the library such as individual window definitions and complete desktop configurations are available real-time in a variety of formats, including:
XML, JSON, instantiated JSON, source format, name/value pairs, delimited, and query string (uri).
