NAME ^

CGI::Application::Plugin::HTMLPrototype - Give easy access to the prototype JavaScript library using HTML::Prototype

SYNOPSIS ^

 use base qw(CGI::Application);
 use CGI::Application::Plugin::HTMLPrototype;

 sub myrunmode {
   my $self = shift;

   # Get prototype object
   my $prototype = $self->prototype;

 }

DESCRIPTION ^

HTML::Prototype is a JavaScript code generator for the prototype.js JavaScript library (http://prototype.conio.net/), and the script.aculo.us extensions to prototype.js (http://script.aculo.us/). It allows you to easily add AJAX calls and dynamic elements to your website.

METHODS ^

prototype

Simply returns an HTML::Prototype object. See the HTML::Prototype docs for information on the methods that are available to you.

TEMPLATE TOOLKIT INTEGRATION ^

This module is very useful when used in concert with the Template Toolkit. Since version 0.07 The CGI::Application::Plugin::TT module automatically adds a 'c' parameter to your template, which gives you access to your CGI::Application object from within your templates. This will give you easy access to the prototype plugin from within all of your templates.

Here is an example. The following example will create a hidden 'div' tag and a link that will make the div fade in when clicked.

  [% c.prototype.define_javascript_functions %]
  <a href="#" onclick="[% c.prototype.visual_effect( 'Appear', 'extra_info' ) %]">Extra Info</a>
  <div style="display: none" id="extra_info">Here is some more extra info</div>
