Class Format.TextMode

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.jdom.output.Format.TextMode
Enclosing class:
Format

public static class Format.TextMode
extends java.lang.Object

Class to signify how text should be handled on output. The following table provides details.

Text Mode Resulting behavior.
PRESERVE (Default) All content is printed in the format it was created, no whitespace or line separators are are added or removed.
TRIM_FULL_WHITE Content between tags consisting of all whitespace is not printed. If the content contains even one non-whitespace character, it is printed verbatim, whitespace and all.
TRIM Same as TrimAllWhite, plus leading/trailing whitespace are trimmed.
NORMALIZE Same as TextTrim, plus addition interior whitespace is compressed to a single space.
In most cases textual content is aligned with the surrounding tags (after the appropriate text mode is applied). In the case where the only content between the start and end tags is textual, the start tag, text, and end tag are all printed on the same line. If the document being output already has whitespace, it's wise to turn on TRIM mode so the pre-existing whitespace can be trimmed before adding new whitespace.

When a element has a xml:space attribute with the value of "preserve", all formating is turned off and reverts back to the default until the element and its contents have been printed. If a nested element contains another xml:space with the value "default" formatting is turned back on for the child element and then off for the remainder of the parent element.
