Class EditableTag

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.DynamicAttributes, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.JspTag, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.SimpleTag

    public class EditableTag
    extends javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.SimpleTagSupport
    implements javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.DynamicAttributes
    Define editable content areas on the page inside the WM editor. The inline edit mode in WebManager needs to know where to place editable content on the page. This is done by using this tag and telling it which content it should use. There are a number of required parameters:
    • tag: The name of the HTML block tag to output. This HTML tag will be used to contain the editable content. The extra meta-data is attached to this tag as HTML5 data attributes.
    • contentHolder: The page version or page section version which holds the content.
    • area: Identifies where in the content holder the content should come from. The separator element is used inside WebManager to divide content up into different areas. The first area is 0, the second is 1 etc. If you are not using any separator elements, this this should just be 0. It is also possible to edit the title of page version. In this case area should be the string "title". In the case where the named content areas feature is used, and the separator elements have an explicit identifier String value, then this identifier is used to locate the correct content area. Note that this identifier may not be a number and may not contain slash characters, nor may it be the string "title".
    • readOnly: When true the editable content is rendered in a read only view, in which it can't be edited.
    • areaend: Optional parameter which is only needed if the content spans a range of separator elements. This value specifies the end area of the range
    • showUI: Optional parameter which is true by default. When true, the UI for the editable content area is always available, even when the content area is not editable.
    Any other attributes (e.g. class, style etc) which are given to this tag are simply passed through to the output HTML tag. It is also possible to manually output the HTML content of the content area inside the tag. In this case the tag will not output the content a second time. This is a deprecated feature for backward compatibility and should not be used. Example of usage:
     <wm:editable tag="div" contentHolder="${pageVersion}" area="0" class="main_content"></wm:editable>
    This is the most basic and common usage. The class attribute is passed through to the output HTML, and the requested content HTML is output. Example of usage (2):
     <wm:editable tag="div" contentHolder="${pageVersion}" area="title" class="main_title"></wm:editable>
    This example shows the title of a page version.
