Motivation:
- Suppose you are building an application for the Yahoo! Application Platform (YAP), and want a tabbed navigation in the small view. This code provides a simplified example of how to construct such navigation.
Flow:
1) The small view will first load the default content (see below), which will callback to this code to fetch the output defined in the else clause of this code.
2) That content will then use a yml:include tag to call back to itself with the parameter "item=1".
3) The script will then execute the if statement and return the default body content for the app.
Usage:
1) Copy/paste this code into the index file at the root of your app. For example, if the base url for your app is http://example.com/index.php, put this code in index.php. Be sure to remove/comment-out any code already in index.php that may interfere.
2) Put the following code in the default small view code box in the YAP dashboard: <yml:include>loading...</yml:include>. Note that because the "params" attribute is omitted from the yml:include tag, the tag will call back to the app's base url by default.
3) Preview your app's small view in the YAP dashboard. You should see "loading...", followed by the appearance of your "tabs" ("item 1 | item 2 | item 3") above the text "loading ...", followed by the replacement of the loading text with "this is item 1 content"
Note:
- Because this is just sample code, security and validation measures have been omitted to reduce complexity. Please add these before using this code in a live app.
