OpenWGA 7.8 - WebTML reference

WebTML tags


Description :

This tag either defines (sets) or reads (gets) WebTML options.

This tag is used inside <tml:include> or <tml:element> to parametrize the WebTML module/element to include.

The name of the option to get or set is specified by the attribute "name". If you want to set an option then you should specify the option value either within the content of the <tml:option> tag or by using attribute "expression", which lets you specify the option value by TMLScript expression.

If no option value is determined, because the tag has no content and the attribute "expression" is not used, then <tml:option> assumes the reading mode. The tag will return the value that is stored in the option of the given name as result.

Another way to determine the operation mode is attribute mode where you can specify to get or set an option explicitly.

Derived from: Only available in the following parent tags: Attributes:

A simple example which sets an option named 'color' and dispatches it to the WebTML include 'navigation':

<tml:include ref="navigation">
      <tml:option name="color">red</tml:option>

The following may be the code of module "navigation" which reads the option color by using <tml:option> in get mode:

<div style="background-color:<tml:option name="color"/>">
