Stylesheet Manager

Styles allow the translation between a logical property of a piece of text and its physical representation. A StyleSheet is a collection of styles, defining the translation necessary to represent a document. It is a linked list of styles.

A stylesheet is a collection of styles - these styles can either come from over the net or they can be provided by the application as needed.

The manager doesn't contain any styles - it only provides a mechanism for registering styles, looking them up and deleting them. That is, it doesn't have any idea of what a style actually looks like - as this is highly application dependent, it is not a good idea to provide this as common library code.

This module is implemented by HTStyle.c, and it is a part of the W3C Sample Code Library.

Creating and Deleting a StyleSheet

A Stylesheet is a container containing multiple individual styles. You must therefore first create a stylesheet before you can create individual styles.

typedef struct _HTStyleSheet HTStyleSheet;

extern HTStyleSheet * HTStyleSheet_new (const char * name);
extern BOOL HTStyleSheet_delete (HTStyleSheet * me);

Creating and Deleting Individual Styles

typedef struct _HTStyle HTStyle;

extern HTStyle * HTStyle_new (const char * name, int element, void * context);
extern BOOL HTStyle_delete (HTStyle * me);

Adding and Deleting Individual styles from Stylesheet

extern BOOL HTStyleSheet_addStyle (HTStyleSheet * me, HTStyle * style);
extern BOOL HTStyleSheet_deleteStyle (HTStyleSheet * me, HTStyle * style);

Searching for a Specific Style

extern HTStyle * HTStyleSheet_findStyleWithName (HTStyleSheet * me, const char * name);
extern HTStyle * HTStyleSheet_findStyleForElement (HTStyleSheet * me, int element);
#endif /* HTSTYLE_H */
