Draggable windows are useful to display content on a Web page that the user may want to move around the page to avoid overlapping the sections of a page that he is more interested in.

This package can help to generate pages that can show draggable windows. It can generate HTML with JavaScript code that can display that kind of window using the Winbox library.

Winbox PHP

A wrapper for using Winbox.js just coding in PHP. Based on:


<img src="" alt="WinBox.js: HTML5 Window Manager for the Web." width="100%">



Clone the repo or use Composer composer require carloswph/winbox-php


Using this wrapper is actually pretty simple and can be done by just using two different classes. The class Init() provides a static method that adds Winbox.js bundle, allowing new windows to be created. Once the bundle is running, new windows can be added by instances of the class Window(), and respective window name as arguments, and its options.

The options can be either set by a number of different methods or passed while creating the instance as an array. When using the Init::enqueue() static method, a boolean can be passed optionally. If true, Winbox PHP will actually enqueue the Winbox bundle from a local repository, rather than the CDN link.

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';


	Winbox\Init::enqueue(); // Adds Winbox.js bundle.
	$wb = new Winbox\Window("Winbox Test");
	$wb->setBorder(4); // Sets the winbox border thickness

	<?php $wb->render(); ?>


setBorder($thickness) - accepts integer or strings, corresponding to any CSS unit (px, for instance)

setColor($color - admits any valid CSS color and determines the window's border background

setViewport($viewport) - admits a single integer or string, or an array of measure (2, 3 or 4 values), corresponding to top, bottom, right and left viewport sizes

setPosition($x, $y) - each of the axis variables can be a single value, or an array of two values or strings ([x, width] and [y, height])

isModal() - if called, the winbox behaves as a modal box

setInner($html) - sets any HTML code to appear inside the winbox

setID($ID) - sets the winbox ID

setClass($class) - sets the winbox CSS class

render() - renders the winbox final result


  • Add custom behaviours to the windows, through the trait On(), as well as allowing a programatic control of the windows features.
  • Create an additional class to set custom CSS, icons and scrollbars to be configured.
