If I use a XUL template to generate the content of a menu, and then access its menu items via DOM properties/methods like childNodes and getElementsByAttribute, attributes populated with RDF variables contain the RDF variable name rather than the value of the variable for that menu item. For example: var menu = document.getElementByID('my-menu'); var popup = menu.childNodes; # the menupopup; childNodes is the template var item = popup.childNodes; # a menu item item.value; Expected Results: the value of the item (f.e. "foo bar baz") Actual Results: the RDF variable representing the values (f.e. "?blah") Accessing the values works, however, for menu.selectedItem and when accessing the menu item via document.getElementById: menu.selectedItem.value; # the value of the item document.getElementById('menu-item-id').value; # the value of the item Tested on today's (2002-07-15) Linux nightly.
Correction, this is the code that fails: var menu = document.getElementById('my-menu'); var popup = menu.getElementsByTagName('menupopup'); popup = popup; var item = popup.childNodes; alert(item.value);
tever is not RDF QA anymore
