oncontentready Event

Fires when the content of the element, to which the behavior is attached, has been completely parsed.

Syntax

<PUBLIC:ATTACH
    EVENT = oncontentready
    ONEVENT = sEventHandler
    FOR = element
    ID = sID
/>

Attributes

EVENT
Required. String that specifies the name of a Dynamic HTML (DHTML) event, or any of the events specific to the HTML Component (HTC) that are listed in the HTC Reference.
FOR
Optional. String that specifies one of the following values to identify the source of the event.
document
Refers to the document object.
element
Default. Refers to the element to which the behavior is attached.
window
Refers to the window object.
ID
Optional. String that uniquely identifies the PUBLIC:ATTACH element within the component. This attribute is analogous to the ID attribute in Dynamic HTML (DHTML).
ONEVENT
Required. String that specifies an inline script or a direct invocation of the event handler function.

Remarks

The innerHTML property of the element might not return the correct value until this event fires.

When this event is fired and the literalContent attribute of the PUBLIC:COMPONENT element is true, the literal content of the Element Behavior has been stored in the innerHTML property. This event indicates to the element behavior that it can then access the innerHTML property.

Because this event is specific to HTC components, the only way to bind to the oncontentready event is by using the PUBLIC:ATTACH element. The attachEvent method does not bind to this event because it works with standard DHTML Events only. When an HTC file is implemented as a Viewlink, the oncontentready event, or any other event that is HTC-specific, cannot be attached to an element in the document fragment.

See Component Initialization for an overview of events fired during the initialization of an HTC file and its primary document.

Example

This example uses the oncontentready event on a page to display the value of the element's innerHTML property.


<PUBLIC:ATTACH EVENT="oncontentready" ONEVENT="show_innerHTML()" />

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JScript">
function show_innerHTML()
{
   window.alert ('innerHTML = ' + element.innerHTML);
}
</SCRIPT>
