    XForms Message Element


    Used in combination with XML Event listeners to display a message to the user when the specified event occurs (see the spec). The message of the message element can exist in instance data, in a remote document, or as inline text. If more than one source of message is specified in this element, the order of precedence is: single node binding attributes, linking attributes, inline text.


    • Single-Node Binding
    • Linking
      • src - URL of a document whose contents will be retrieved by the message element and used to provide the message text for the message element.
    • Special
      • level - defines a representation of message element

    Type restrictions

    The message element can be bound to any simple content.


    It may be represented in the following ways:

    • modal window - if level attribute value is modal
    • modeless window - if level attribute value is modeless
    • tooltip window - if level attribute value is ephemeral

    Note: message element doesn't define a default presentation. Therefore you should always specify a level attribute.


      <xforms:label>It's a button</xforms:label>
      <xforms:message level="modal" ev:event="DOMActivate">Hello</xforms:message>
