Sample text

Size The total number of characters displayed within a single-line text entry box. wrap Turns word wrapping on or off; a value of off disables word wrapping. Developers use a single-line text area when the size of text will be limited for data fields, and they use a multiline text area for a general-purpose “narrative” entry. The actual number of vertical and horizontal rows visible in the text box may also depend on the flex attributes of the parent container and the value of the wrap attribute.

The rows and size attributes also presume the appearance of scrollbars: if the rows attribute is 3 but no horizontal scrollbar exists, four rows will be displayed. For example, given the following code snippet: multiline="true" size="20" wrap="on"/> multiline="true" size="20" wrap="off" /> the interface would appear as shown in Figure 2-10. Figure 2-10. Text element appearance 26 | Chapter 2: XUL Basics Both text elements define three rows, but the right box expands to fill the available vertical space (the left text box is enclosed by a vbox that shrinks to the minimum size required).

Listitems display the contents of the label attribute, but they also support a value attribute that scripts use to obtain some data that the designer chooses not to be rendered in the interface. 28 | Chapter 2: XUL Basics You also can divide listboxes into multiple columns in a fashion very similar to that of the HTML table element. For multiple-column lists, the first child of a listbox is a element that contains one child for each column to be displayed with a header. Following the child is the entry with one child for each column to be displayed.
