This package currently only defines one DOM String related function.

The source for tapestry.html can be found here.


Used primarily in tapestry.bind to convert incoming XML document node content into a javascript String that will be compatible with DomNode.innerHTML calls. The semantics of using innerHTML are fairly quircky from browser to browser (if you want to maintain stylesheet rules/etc), so this function will determine your browser type and act accordingly. It should universally be able to produce a String compatible with innerHTML statements from almost any source, even existing HTML DOM nodes that aren't part of an IO XML document return.

nodeDOMNode/HtmlDOMNodeyesThe XML or HTML DOM node to parse html textual fragment contents from.

Example usage

If you wanted to take an IO return chunk of xml that looked like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<response id="chunk1" type="element">
This is some example html content.

As you can see, any valid html element can be embedded in the response.

and place it's content into an existing HTML dom node you might do something like this:

dojo.require("tapestry.html"); // ensures tapestry.html package is loaded

var xmlData=functionFoo();
var domNode = xmlData.getElementById("chunk1");
