codeigniter-qzones-library is a library for the CodeIgniter framework. Its a
layout (QLayout) library and a companion library of codeigniter-qview-library.
Its goal is to ease XHTML document creation and templatization with the internal
usage of codeigniter-xhtml-library.

Go see codeigniter-xhtml-library, codeigniter-qpanel-library and 
codeigniter-qview-library for more information.


# The library is automagically loaded when a declared usager is done with Qview
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Go see Qview fo a detailled usage sample. I'll be brief here and concentrate
# the reader on Qzones.

class My_qview extends Qview
	public function __construct( $params )
		parent::__construct( $params );
	public function init()
		parent::init( $this );
		parent::_Reg( Qview::head, 'title', '_title' );
		parent::_Reg( Qview::body, 'content', '_content' );
		# The Qzones library is loaded by Qview when registered with
		# _RegQVLLib()
		# ----------------------------
		parent::_RegQVLLib( 'qzones', 'qz', $init_params );
		# Registration is similar to _Reg().
		# 'qzones' is the library name. 
		# 'qz' is the trigger name, called as a method.
		# $init_params is an array with class instance parameters.
		# --------------------------------------------------------
	public function _title()
		$title = $this->oCI->xhtml->title( 'My document title' );
		return $title;
	public function _content( $array_params )
		$h1 = $this->oCI->xhtml->h1( $array_params['welcome_str'] );
		return $h1;

# End of Qview class extension.
# -----------------------------

# Remember that the Qzones library is a CodeIgniter library. Save it in the
# appropriate folder and Qview will load it when registered.

# In the view file...
# -------------------

# ( See codeigniter-qview-library for more information )



# (1)
$this->my_qview->body->qz( Qzone::Top )->attach()->content();


# End of view file
# ----------------

# Lets examine the view file code, (1) more precisely
# ---------------------------------------------------
#  (1) : o First, you can only call Layout libraries in the body part, not in
#          the head.
#        o qz() is the registered layout trigger name which maps to a method
#          receiving a coordinate value. Coordinate values are declared as class
#          constants in Qzones.
#        o attach() links the 'content' trigger to qz() coordinate and the
#          'body' part.
#        o content() is the registered callback trigger. 

# Interesting facts
# -----------------
# You can develop layout libraries if you find Qview a valuable tool. You'll 
# have to make your new QLayout class by implementing the interface that comes
# with the Qview library.
