showRemoteSiteExt Method

This function is used to show a remote web site in a different web view.

intel.xdk.device.showRemoteSiteExt(url, closeImagePortraitX, closeImagePortraitY, closeImageLandscapeX, closeImageLandscapeY, closeImageWidth, closeImageHeight)

Description:

This function is used to show a remote web site in a different web view. Touching the close image will shut down the web view and return the user to the normal application view.
