Panel persistence for Modal Dialog (CEP8)

Post by RonaldMdJonald »

Hi all,

My extension makes use of a second 'slave' extension panel bundled together with the main. It's set as a Modal Dialog in the manifest.xml and works as I'd hope, calling CSInterface.requestOpenExtension(); from the main extension.

I'm using Davide Barranca's panel persistence for the main panel, but can't get the same code to work for the Modal Dialog (I have remembered to change the extension id to that of the Modal Dialog). Is there something I need to be doing differently to make it work or is persistence simply not supported for Modal Dialogs?

It's not a huge issue but the Modal Dialog can take a second or two to open which I'm hoping a persistent Dialog would help with.

Many thanks!
