Attributes

accesskey
类型: character【字符】
本属性允许为控件(元素)设定一个字符作为快捷键,这个字符应该是 label 属性文本中的一个字符。该字符将会被加下划线以重点强调,平台和主体的变换并不影响这一表现行为。 当用户点击 ALT (在其他平台上具有类似功能的键) 和这个字符对应的按键时, 控件(元素)将立刻被从窗口中的某处激活或/并且获得焦点 。虽说字符不分大小写,但是当label中存在大写字符和小写字符时,快捷键的字符将首先选择与之完全匹配的那一个,如果label中存在两个或更多的与accesskey字符相同的字符,其中的第一个字符将被加下划线。
      *(有些键在监听按键事件时,分别对应event.ctrlKey和event.metaKey。)

 

Example

Image:XUL_ref_accesskey_attr.png
<vbox>	
  <label value="Enter Name" accesskey="e" control="myName"/>
  <textbox id="myName"/>
  <button label="Cancel" accesskey="n"/>
  <button label="Ok" accesskey="O"/>
</vbox>

crop
Type: one of the values below
If the label of the element is too big to fit in its given space, the text will be cropped on the side specified by the crop attribute. An ellipsis will be used in place of the cropped text. If the box direction is reversed, the cropping is reversed.
  • start: The text will be cropped on its left side.
  • end: The text will be cropped on its right side.
  • left: The text will be cropped on its left side.
  • right: The text will be cropped on its right side.
  • center: The text will be cropped in the middle, showing both the start and end of the text normally.
  • none: The text will be not be cropped using an ellipsis. However, the text will simply be cut off if it is too large. The side depends on the CSS text alignment.

User notes

Remember that the label element has a "value" attribute, unlike value in HTML whereas buttons, checkboxes use label="foo" as the attribute

<label label="A Caption"/> <-- wrong -->
<label value="A Caption"/>

<label value="Click the button"/>
<button label="A Button"/>
<checkbox label="A Decision" value="1"/>
