Interface UserDataHandler


public interface UserDataHandler

When associating an object to a key on a node using Node.setUserData() the application can provide a handler that gets called when the node the object is associated to is being cloned, imported, or renamed. This can be used by the application to implement various behaviors regarding the data it associates to the DOM nodes. This interface defines that handler.

See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Core Specification.

Since:
DOM Level 3

Field Summary
static short NODE_ADOPTED
          The node is adopted, using Document.adoptNode().
static short NODE_CLONED
          The node is cloned, using Node.cloneNode().
static short NODE_DELETED
          The node is deleted.
static short NODE_IMPORTED
          The node is imported, using Document.importNode().
static short NODE_RENAMED
          The node is renamed, using Document.renameNode().
 
Method Summary
 void handle(short operation, java.lang.String key, java.lang.Object data, Node src, Node dst)
          This method is called whenever the node for which this handler is registered is imported or cloned.
 

Field Detail

NODE_CLONED

static final short NODE_CLONED
The node is cloned, using Node.cloneNode().

Constant Field Values

NODE_IMPORTED

static final short NODE_IMPORTED
The node is imported, using Document.importNode().

Constant Field Values

NODE_DELETED

static final short NODE_DELETED
The node is deleted.

Note: This may not be supported or may not be reliable in certain environments, such as Java, where the implementation has no real control over when objects are actually deleted.

Constant Field Values

NODE_RENAMED

static final short NODE_RENAMED
The node is renamed, using Document.renameNode().

Constant Field Values

NODE_ADOPTED

Method Detail

handle

void handle(short operation,
            java.lang.String key,
            java.lang.Object data,
            Node src,
            Node dst)
This method is called whenever the node for which this handler is registered is imported or cloned.
DOM applications must not raise exceptions in a UserDataHandler. The effect of throwing exceptions from the handler is DOM implementation dependent.

Parameters:
operation - Specifies the type of operation that is being performed on the node.
key - Specifies the key for which this handler is being called.
data - Specifies the data for which this handler is being called.
src - Specifies the node being cloned, adopted, imported, or renamed. This is null when the node is being deleted.
dst - Specifies the node newly created if any, or null.
