Class Overview

This class transforms a TabBean allowing users to view/modify the properties of a line control (for example, orientation). As with other TabTransforms, this one assumes its TabManagerBean will take care of rendering the required HTML & Javascript allowing users to switch between different formatting TabBean instances.

The output of this transform is generated in a single sections:

  • Orientation
    This section has its own render method.

    This Transform implements LayoutTransform, therefore its render methods can be invoked using a custom layout-xml. When this is the case, the layout-xml specified in the style-catalog controls which methods are called and in which order. Otherwise, the default output of this transform is divided as follows:
         Contents / ContentsBody
         -------------------------------------
         |                                   |
         |  Orientation Section              |
         |                                   |

    Public Constructors

    public TabPropertiesLineTransform ()

    Public Methods

    public String getDescription ()

    Returns the textual description of the transform

    Returns
    • the description of the transform

    public Class getSupportedBeanType ()

    Returns the supported bean type. This transform supports any of the TabBean instances

    Returns
    • the class of the bean supported by this transform.

    public void initializeCss ()

    Initializes the Css Classes to use. For each one of the css classes to use, the prefix indicated on the formal parameter is added to the name of the class to use.

    public void initializeJavaScriptAttributes ()

    For JavaScript, certain properties are required to be added to the HTML tags to generate for its integration with the code generated for the feature to work in DHTML environments. This method assigns values to these attributes, so they can be displayed together with the tags they represent. If a value is set to be null, it won't be included on the HTML tag definition. By default, it includes the definition of values for properties such as styFrame, tyFrame and scriptClassFrame.

    public void renderContentsBody (MarkupOutput out)

    This is the entry point for the Tranform, and generates the body of the Tab.

    If a layout-xml is specified, this method will delegate the output generation to the Layout parser, otherwise it calls renderOrientationSection().

    Parameters
    out MarkupOutput instance where the HTML contents to render will be saved.

    public void renderJavascriptLinks (MarkupOutput out)

    Used to dynamically include links to js files. Extend with the list of files your transform requires.

    Parameters
    out MarkupOutput instance where the HTML contents to render will be saved.

    public void renderOrientationSection (MarkupOutput out)

    Generates the HTML output that allows users to select the orientation of the current line control.

    Parameters
    out MarkupOutput instance where the HTML contents to render will be saved.
