WML - Links

Advertisements


WML provides you an option to link various cards using links and then navigate through different cards.

There are two WML elements, <anchor> and <a>, which can be used to create WML links.

WML <anchor> Element:

The <anchor>...</anchor> tag pair is used to create an anchor link. It is used together with other WML elements called <go/>, <refresh> or <prev/>. These elements are called task elements and tell WAP browsers what to do when a user selects the anchor link

You can enclose Text or image along with a task tag inside <anchor>...</anchor> tag pair.

The <anchor> element supports the following attributes:

AttributeValueDescription
titlecdataDefines a text identifying the link
xml:langlanguage_codeSets the language used in the element
classclass dataSets a class name for the element.
idelement IDA unique ID for the element.

Following is the example showing usage of <anchor> element.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.2//EN"
"http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml12.dtd">

<wml>

<card title="Anchor Element">
<p>
   <anchor>
      <go href="nextpage.wml"/>
   </anchor>
</p>
<p>
   <anchor>
      <prev/>
   </anchor>
</p>
</card>

</wml>
