The qooxdoo docs do span several pages and say so little! :-)

It was a combination of source reading and using a variables bookmarklet.
The bookmarklet displays every variable and function in the currently open
window.  See "view variables" on

I've got a work around for this problem now, without having to do special
event listener code.  To get movement, placement, etc. working inside the
context of the browser window, I add a QxWidget and set height/width to
match the browser, using some onload and onresize handlers to keep the
QxWidget in step with the browser.

We shouldn't be limited to working within positioned widgets now! :-)
