This action adds an attribute to this object. If an attribute with the same name as

Parameters

Example


use Libraries.Web.Page.AttributeAccepter

AddAttribute(text name, text value)

This action adds an attribute to this object. This action is a helper action, which essentially does the same thing as the Add(Attribute) action. If an attribute with the same name as

Parameters

  • text name: The name of the attribute functions as a key. For example, in a link, we might have a "src" and an actual address, like google.com. In this case, the name would be equivalent to the src.
  • text value: As an example of link, imagine we have a value of "src" and an actual address, like google.com. In this case, the value would be equivalent to google.com.

Example


use Libraries.Web.Page.AttributeAccepter
use Libraries.Web.Page.Attribute

AttributeAccepter accept
accept:AddAttribute("src", "http://www.google.com")

AddClassAttribute(text value)

Adds to the ClassAttribute attribute. Multiple class names can be listed in the passed text, separated by a space.

Parameters

  • text value: The classes to be added to the element

Example



use Libraries.Web.Page.GlobalAttributeAccepter
use Libraries.Web.Page.Attribute

GlobalAttributeAccepter accept
accept:AddClassAttribute("myClass")

AddNestedTag(Libraries.Web.Page.WebTag tag)

This action adds a WebTag to the list of WebTags contained within the current WebTag.

Parameters

Example

use Libraries.Web.Page.TableRow
use Libraries.Web.Page.TableData


//TableRow and TableData are both WebTags
TableRow row
TableData cell
cell:SetDescription("name")
row:Add(cell)

AddText(text value)

This action sets the description text for this WebTag.

Parameters

  • text value: The text contained in the WebTag.

Example

use Libraries.Web.Page.TableRow
use Libraries.Web.Page.TableData

//TableRow and TableData are both WebTags
TableRow row
TableData cell
cell:AddDescription("name")

Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Parameters

Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

Example

Object o
Object t
integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smaller)

Equals(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action determines if two objects are equal based on their hash code values.

Parameters

Return

boolean: True if the hash codes are equal and false if they are not equal.

Example

use Libraries.Language.Object
use Libraries.Language.Types.Text
Object o
Text t
boolean result = o:Equals(t)

Return

text:
