Superclasses:

Group of document objects

Description

Group of document objects that you can append multiple times in a document without you having to clone the group. When you append a group to a document, the DOM interface clones the group.

Tip

You can use mlreportgen.dom.Group and mlreportgen.dom.Container objects to produce collections of document elements.

  • Use a group object to append the same content in multiple places in a document without having to clone the group. Group objects do not have a Style property for using the same applicable styles to all document elements in the group.

  • Use a container object to create a div, section, or article container element and to use the same applicable styles to all document elements in the container. To append the same container object contents in multiple places in a document, use the mlreportgen.dom.Container.clone method.

Construction

groupObj = Group() creates an empty group.

Output Arguments

Group of document objects, represented by an mlreportgen.dom.Group object.

Properties

expand all

ID for this document element, specified as a character vector or string scalar. The DOM generates a session-unique ID when it creates the document element. You can specify your own ID.

Children of this document element, specified as an array of DOM objects. This property is read-only.

Parent of this document element, specified as a DOM object. This property is read-only.

Tag for this document element, specified as a character vector or string scalar.

The DOM generates a session-unique tag as part of the creation of this object. The generated tag has the form CLASS:ID, where CLASS is the object class and ID is the value of the Id property of the object. Specifying your own tag value can help you to identify where an issue occurred during document generation.
