Class ScriptElement


public class ScriptElement
extends SinglePartElement

Use a ScriptElement to add a JavaScript script to an HtmlPage.

The following example adds a ScriptElement to the HtmlPage "hp" to implement a simple Java script.

   hp.addElement(new ScriptElement("function compute(form) {" + 
      "  if (confirm(\"Evaluate Expression \" + form.input.value + \" ?\")) " +
      "  form.answer.value = \"The answer is: \" + eval(form.input.value); " +
      "  else " +
      " alert(\"Try again and choose OK.\"); " +

You can also add a reference to a script kept in a file that is named in the setSrc() method. In this case, choose the constructor that takes no arguments.

Constructor Detail


public ScriptElement()
Constructs a ScriptElement without a script. Call the setSrc() method to refer to a file that contains the script, or call the setScript() method to set the script. Using this constructor without setting a source or a script will result in a scripting error for some scripting languages.


public ScriptElement(java.lang.String script)
Constructs a ScriptElement with the specified String.

script - Script
Method Detail


public ScriptElement setLanguage(java.lang.String val)
Deprecated. Use ElementWithAttributes.setLang()
Deprecated in 2.6. Use ElementWithAttributes.setLang().


public ScriptElement setScript(java.lang.String script)
Sets the script for a ScriptElement to the specified string.


public ScriptElement setSrc(java.lang.String val)
Sets the SRC attribute for a ScriptElement. In most cases the value of the SCR attribute specifies the language with the file extension, for example "myFile.js" for a JavaScript source. The file extension must be mapped by the web server to a specific MIME type, which the server sends back in the HTTP GET reply's Content-type header. If the server is not configured to map the file extension to a MIME type, the browser may not respond properly with the data that is returned in the HTTP response to a source-initiated request.

Also use this method to set the source of a ScriptElement to a URL. Call the superclass setType() method with a MIME type from the MimeType class.
