Class LabelWidget

Defined in widgetsBasic.js

The LabelWidget is primarily the simplest possible usable widget. (This is also why methods I'd normally leave undocumented are documented here, for educational purposes.) It is simply a text span on the screen; due to the way HTML works and how simple this Widget is the text inside can not even be styled; the label widget is simply a <span> with a text node.) However, due to how hard/annoying the DOM makes it to have this sort of "label", I find myself using this in real code all the time, since it integrates so well with the rest of XBLinJS; trivial, yes, useless, no.

The widget does assume you aren't going to muck around with the insides directly; if you fragment the internal text node or do any other crazy DOM things, the value you retrieve from it will be wrong.

Relevant Parameters:


The LabelWidget is a <span> that inherits everything ("*").
