Description

17 years ago
Problem: With today's xul templates we cannot
reconstruct the tree structure from the data on post/pref-fix
base.

Usage case: RDF datsource fives flat structured descriptionof tree
-- every tree node includes path to it, child nodes can be 
recocnized by an pre/post-fix. We need to display it as a tree.
 
Suggestion:
To extend "containment" syntax to allow generating of nested
content based on pre/post-fix base.

Let's imagine we have data in datasource, eg. in LDAP one,
and want them to be displayed in tree structure. 
RDF datasource, eg. search over whole tree, 
returns flat structure containing path to the node 
in every node. We know that a child nodes can be recocnized 
by an postfix and we need to recostruct the tree structure
from it.

I don't understand. Please create an RDF/XML file that illustrates the ``flat''
data, and then illustrate the content model that you'd like to see generated
from it.

binary_runner: take a look at the changes in bug 83360 and see if they are
sufficient to do what you want without having to insert extra hooks in the XUL
template build.

I think that the patch solves the problem reasonably well.
