Interface NodeVisitor

All Known Implementing Classes:
W3CDom.W3CBuilder

public interface NodeVisitor
Node visitor interface. Provide an implementing class to NodeTraversor to iterate through nodes.

This interface provides two methods, head and tail. The head method is called when the node is first seen, and the tail method when all of the node's children have been visited. As an example, head can be used to emit a start tag for a node, and tail to create the end tag.

  • Method Details

    • head

      void head(Node node, int depth)
      Callback for when a node is first visited.

      The node may be modified (e.g. Node.attr(String), replaced Node.replaceWith(Node)) or removed Node.remove(). If it's instanceOf Element, you may cast it to an Element and access those methods.

      Parameters:
      node - the node being visited.
      depth - the depth of the node, relative to the root node. E.g., the root node has depth 0, and a child node of that will have depth 1.
    • tail

      default void tail(Node node, int depth)
      Callback for when a node is last visited, after all of its descendants have been visited.

      This method has a default no-op implementation.

      Note that neither replacement with Node.replaceWith(Node) nor removal with Node.remove() is supported during tail().

      Parameters:
      node - the node being visited.
      depth - the depth of the node, relative to the root node. E.g., the root node has depth 0, and a child node of that will have depth 1.
