Mozilla XUL Element and Script Reference

Contents  Quick Reference

Children

Specifies the location where any child elements of the bound element are placed in the generated content.

Normally, if the element bound to has its own content, the anonymous content is not generated. However, with a children element, you can merge the content from the XUL element and the XBL content.

If the children tag contains content itself, that content will become the default content. If the element the binding is attached to contains content, the default content will be ignored. If the element does not contain content, the default content will be added.

Attributes:

Attributes inherited from Element

class

The style class of the xbl:children. Multiple classes may be specified by separating them with spaces.

id

A unique identifier so that you can identify the xbl:children with. You can use this as a parameter to getElementById and other DOM functions and to reference the element in style sheets.

includes

Should be set to a tag name which acts as a filter for the XUL's content. Any tags that match the value of the includes attribute are placed at the location of the children element.
