updateΒΆ

Updates the content of an HTML element with a template or a literal HTML text.

Example:

<div id="mydiv"><p>Bye Bye.</p></div>
{% button text="hello" action={update target="mydiv" text="<p>Hello World!</p>"} %}

When clicked, the contents of the div will be set to the HTML fragment <p>Hello World!</p>. This replaces any content present.

Another example, now rendering a template:

<ul id="mylist"><li>Some item</li></li>
{% button text="hello" action={update target="mylist" template="_list_item.tpl" id=42} %}

This updates the <ul/> with the output of the template _list_item.tpl. All arguments to the update action are also arguments to the template.
