WOGenericElement

public WOGenericElement(java.lang.String n,
                        net.wotonomy.foundation.NSDictionary m,
                        WOElement t)
Method Detail

elementName

public java.lang.String elementName(WOContext c)

takeValuesFromRequest

public void takeValuesFromRequest(WORequest r,
                                  WOContext c)
Description copied from class: WODynamicElement
This method is called to retrieve user-entered data from the request. WOElements should retrieve data from the request based on their elementID and set values in the context's current WOComponent, typically those values that are associated with the element in the binding. This implementation does nothing.

Overrides:
takeValuesFromRequest in class WODynamicElement

invokeAction

public WOActionResults invokeAction(WORequest r,
                                    WOContext c)
Description copied from class: WODynamicElement
This method is called on all objects and elements of the application until a non-null value is returned. WOElements should first check to see if they are the target of an action by checking the WOContext's senderID to see if it matches this element's elementID. If this element is the target, it should perform an appropriate action on the context's current WOComponent, usually the action specified in the binding, and return the result of that action. This implementation returns null.

Overrides:
invokeAction in class WODynamicElement

appendToResponse

public void appendToResponse(WOResponse r,
                             WOContext c)
Description copied from class: WODynamicElement
This method is called on all elements of the content tree to build a response to a user request. The message should be forwarded to any child elements so that the entire tree is traversed. This implementation does nothing.

Overrides:
appendToResponse in class WODynamicElement
