NAME ^

HTML::DOM::Element::TextArea - A Perl class for representing 'textarea' elements in an HTML DOM tree

SYNOPSIS ^

  use HTML::DOM;
  $doc = HTML::DOM->new;
  $elem = $doc->createElement('textarea');

  $elem->focus();
  $elem->blur();
  # etc.

  $elem->value('some text') # set attribute
  $elem->rows;              # get attribute
  $elem->tagName;
  # etc.

DESCRIPTION ^

This class implements 'textarea' elements in an HTML::DOM tree. It implements the HTMLTextAreaElement DOM interface and inherits from HTML::DOM::Element (q.v.).

METHODS ^

In addition to those inherited from HTML::DOM::Element and its superclasses, this class implements the following DOM methods:

accessKey
cols
disabled
name
readOnly
rows
tabIndex

Each of these returns the corresponding HTML attribute. If you pass an argument, it will become the new value of the attribute, and the old value will be returned.

defaultValue

Returns the text content of the element. This currently does not work if the 'textarea' element has more than one child.

form

Returns the form containing this input element.

type

Returns the string 'textarea'.

value

This method allows one to change the current value of the input field. The change is not reflected in the HTML tree. This will be called with the value of defaultValue when the form's reset method is invoked.

blur
focus
select

Each of these triggers the corresponding event.

In addition, the following methods are provided for compatibility with WWW::Mechanize:

possible_values

This returns an empty list.

form_name_value

Returns a list of two items: (0) the name of the field and (1) the value.
