Method Detail

getForm

public HTMLFormElement getForm()
Returns the FORM element containing this control. Returns null if this control is not within the context of a form.

getDefaultSelected

public boolean getDefaultSelected()
Represents the value of the HTML selected attribute. The value of this attribute does not change if the state of the corresponding form control, in an interactive user agent, changes. Changing defaultSelected , however, resets the state of the form control. See the selected attribute definition in HTML 4.0.

setDefaultSelected

public void setDefaultSelected(boolean defaultSelected)

getText

public java.lang.String getText()
The text contained within the option element.

getIndex

public int getIndex()
The index of this OPTION in its parent SELECT , starting from 0.

getDisabled

public boolean getDisabled()
The control is unavailable in this context. See the disabled attribute definition in HTML 4.0.

setDisabled

public void setDisabled(boolean disabled)

getLabel

public java.lang.String getLabel()
Option label for use in hierarchical menus. See the label attribute definition in HTML 4.0.

setLabel

public void setLabel(java.lang.String label)

public boolean getSelected()
Represents the current state of the corresponding form control, in an interactive user agent. Changing this attribute changes the state of the form control, but does not change the value of the HTML selected attribute of the element.

setSelected

public void setSelected(boolean selected)

public java.lang.String getValue()
The current form control value. See the value attribute definition in HTML 4.0.
