Subject: ODF-Next: Group element - was: Proposal for Preferred Selection inText Documents


Thinking more thoroughly about this issue, I propose to have a geneic <area> element (or <group>), that allows various actions.

Some actions that pop up to mind are:
onSelect()
onFocus()
onBlur()
onScrollin()
onScrollout()
onPrint()

Or specializations of onPrint():
onPrint(type="BW")
onPrint(type="Colour")

This would be quite useful to avoid the heavy background when printing a page with black background.


Another useful feature would be:
onDisplay(media="mobile") to adapt, e.g. tables for a mobile environment,

Therefore, I propose to implement a generic <area> element, that allows a settable action and an ID. One of the actions would be onSelect(), which would cover the previous case.

The possibilities are much more extended for spreadsheers, where actions may be coupled to formulas and other cells (and may well replace the conditional formatting).

Sincerely,

Leonard



ODF-Next: Proposal for Preferred Selection in Text Documents

> ===========
> I plan to write a statistical tutorial in R, and would like to include

> every executed line. However, I would like students to be able to copy/paste
> easily the code, avoiding thus to copy also the results and non-code text.
> Thus, I would like to define a text area that is easily selectable and

> B.) REQUIREMENTS
> ================
> 
> 1.) A preferred selection will identify portions of text that shall be
> easily selectable by default.
> 
> 2.) Such areas may span more than one paragraph.
> 
> 3.) Such areas may contain interspersed non-preferred selection elements.
> 
> The user may select with a single click ALL the data that is marked as
> preferred selection, excluding data not-marked as such. I am highlighting the
> word: single click. So, it will not be necessary to select everything
> manually, the Office application will know to select everything, even if it
> spans multiple pages, because the area was marked as a prefrred selection. This
> comes very handy, if the selectin goes over more than one page.
> 
> Because there may be more than one selections, I propose to have an ID for
> every preferred selection.
> 
> The xml, in pseudocode, may look like (though ID is probably misused in
> this example and is not a true ID):
> 
> <Selection:preferred ID="1">...</>
> other content
> <Selection:preferred ID="1">...</>
> other content 2
> 
> With a proper ID, it may look more like:
> 
> <Selection:preferred ID="1">
>   Selection content
>   <Selection:none>none selection content</>
>   Additional selection content
> </>
> 
> But the second variant would prohibit overlapping selections.
> 
> 
> This is a new feature, and would not be supported by older ODF - it would
> nevertheless degrade gracefully.
