The Text Controls subcomponent is used by UI Options to present controls that allow a user to configure how text should be presented on a page. The options described on this page can be configured through the options of the main UI Options components. Three version of UI Options are available:

Do not use this component directly. The information on this page should be use when customizing one of the three versions.

Supported Events

back to top

Listeners can be attached to any supported events through a component's listeners option. Values can be a function reference (not a string function name) or an anonymous function definition, as illustrated below:
var myComponent = component.name("#myContainerID", {
    listeners: {
        eventName1: functionName,
        eventName2: function (params) {
            ...
        }
    }
});

For information on the different types of events, see Infusion Event System.

Options

back to top

Configurable subcomponents can be configured though the parent component's options by passing a JavaScript object containing options for the subcomponent:
parent.component.name(".myContainer", {
    <subcomponentName>: {
        options: {
            <subcomponent options>
        }
    }
});

The options supported by the Text Controls subcomponent are described below.

controlValues

Description

This options defines values for the two lists in this set of controls: textFont and theme.

Default

controlValues: { 
    textFont: ["default", "times", "comic", "arial", "verdana"],
    theme: ["default", "bw", "wb", "by", "yb"]
}

Example

controlValues: { 
    textFont: ["default", "time", "comic", "arial", "verdana", "courier"]
}

Notes

  1. If the controlValues are modified, the UI Enhancer must be updated, and the associated strings option should be updated.
  2. The values are arrays. If the defaults are overridden, an entire new array must be specified, even if the only customization is the addition of an element to the array.

Selectors

back to top

One of the options that can be provided to the component is a set of CSS-based selectors identifying where in the DOM different elements can be found. The value for the option is itself a Javascript object containing name/value pairs:
selectors: {
    selector1Name: "selector 1 string",
    selector2Name: "selector 2 string",
      ...
}

The component defines defaults for these selectors: If you use those defaults in your markup, you do not need to specify the selectors option. If you do choose to override any of the selectors, you can specify your custom selector using this option.

The selectors supported by the Text Controls subcomponent are described below.
