Interface StyleSheet

All Known Subinterfaces:
CSSStyleSheet

public interface StyleSheet

The StyleSheet interface is the abstract base interface for any type of style sheet. It represents a single style sheet associated with a structured document. In HTML, the StyleSheet interface represents either an external style sheet, included via the HTML LINK element, or an inline STYLE element. In XML, this interface represents an external style sheet, included via a style sheet processing instruction.

Method Detail

getType

public java.lang.String getType()
This specifies the style sheet language for this style sheet. The style sheet language is specified as a content type (e.g. "text/css"). The content type is often specified in the ownerNode. Also see the type attribute definition for the LINK element in HTML 4.0, and the type pseudo-attribute for the XML style sheet processing instruction.

getDisabled

public boolean getDisabled()
false if the style sheet is applied to the document. true if it is not. Modifying this attribute may cause a new resolution of style for the document. A stylesheet only applies if both an appropriate medium definition is present and the disabled attribute is false. So, if the media doesn't apply to the current user agent, the disabled attribute is ignored.

setDisabled

public void setDisabled(boolean disabled)
false if the style sheet is applied to the document. true if it is not. Modifying this attribute may cause a new resolution of style for the document. A stylesheet only applies if both an appropriate medium definition is present and the disabled attribute is false. So, if the media doesn't apply to the current user agent, the disabled attribute is ignored.

getOwnerNode

public Node getOwnerNode()
The node that associates this style sheet with the document. For HTML, this may be the corresponding LINK or STYLE element. For XML, it may be the linking processing instruction. For style sheets that are included by other style sheets, the value of this attribute is null.

getParentStyleSheet

public StyleSheet getParentStyleSheet()
For style sheet languages that support the concept of style sheet inclusion, this attribute represents the including style sheet, if one exists. If the style sheet is a top-level style sheet, or the style sheet language does not support inclusion, the value of this attribute is null.

getHref

public java.lang.String getHref()
If the style sheet is a linked style sheet, the value of its attribute is its location. For inline style sheets, the value of this attribute is null. See the href attribute definition for the LINK element in HTML 4.0, and the href pseudo-attribute for the XML style sheet processing instruction.

getTitle

public java.lang.String getTitle()
The advisory title. The title is often specified in the ownerNode. See the title attribute definition for the LINK element in HTML 4.0, and the title pseudo-attribute for the XML style sheet processing instruction.

getMedia

public MediaList getMedia()
The intended destination media for style information. The media is often specified in the ownerNode. If no media has been specified, the MediaList will be empty. See the media attribute definition for the LINK element in HTML 4.0, and the media pseudo-attribute for the XML style sheet processing instruction . Modifying the media list may cause a change to the attribute disabled.
