Class HTMLWordTables


  • public class HTMLWordTables
    extends java.lang.Object
    HTMLWordTables for Mandarin Chinese Translations.

    This class generates the HTML CSS z-index-based tables that are used by java-script. Java-script utilizes the z-index axis to generate popup windows which contain Mandarin Chinese, English, and even Spanish Translations. Specifically, the tables generally contain:

    • 繁体字 (Traditional-Chinese, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southern China - Optional)
    • 简体中文 (Standard-Chinese Simplified Characters
    • 拼音罗马 (Romanization)
    • English
    • Español


Stateless Class: This class neither contains any program-state, nor can it be instantiated. The @StaticFunctional Annotation may also be called 'The Spaghetti Report'. Static-Functional classes are, essentially, C-Styled Files, without any constructors or non-static member field. It is very similar to the Java-Bean @Stateless Annotation.
  • 1 Constructor(s), 1 declared private, zero-argument constructor
  • 2 Method(s), 2 declared static
  • 0 Field(s)

        Builds a simple, short HTML version of the Chinese-Simplified / English / Spanish sentence DIV
        Parameters:
        simpSentence - This may be a single word, a complete phrase, sentence, or even a paragraph of simplified Mandarin Chinese scraped from a web-site like Gov.CN. If this parameter is null, an exception will be thrown.
        englSentence - This is intended to be the English-Translated version of the Simplified-Chinese sentence. If this parameter is null, the output HTML-table will have one less / fewer row included.
        espaSentence - This is supposed to be the Spanish-translated version of the Simplified-Chinese sentence. If this parameter is null, the output HTML-table will have one less / fewer row included.
        tableClass - If this table needs a CSS-Class selector, pass it here.
        tableID - If this table requires a CSS-ID selector, pass it here.
        onClickListener - This is a string of the form "callbackFuntion(params);" It is inserted into the <TABLE on_click="INSERTED-STRING-HERE"> tag
        Returns:
        An Table-HTML string. Note: The Vocabulary tables *ARE NOT* included. This only includes the English, Spanish & Chinese sentences.
        Throws:
        java.lang.NullPointerException - If simpSentence is null.
        Code:
        Exact Method Body:
         if (simpSentence == null) throw new NullPointerException
             ("simpSentence MAY NOT be NULL, engl and espa can be.");
        
         String tableIncludeStr = "";
