Text is a component for abstracting several paragraphs of text. It’s usage is simple and straightforward:
First argument of constructor or first element in array passed to constructor will be the text that will appear on the label:
$text = Text::addTo($app, ['here goes some text']);
You can define multiple paragraphs with text like this:
$text = Text::addTo($app) ->addParagraph('First Paragraph') ->addParagraph('Second Paragraph');
By default Text will not escape HTML so this will render as a bold text:
$text = Text::addTo($app, ['here goes <b>some bold text</b>']);
If you are using Text for output HTML then you are doing it wrong. You should use a generic View and specify your HTML as a template.
When you use paragraphs, escaping is performed by default:
$text = Text::addTo($app) ->addParagraph('No alerts') ->addParagraph('<script>alert(1);</script>');
Text is usable in generic components, where you want to leave possibility of text injection. For instance,
Message uses text allowing you to add few paragraphs of text:
$message = Message::addTo($app, ['Message Title']); $message->addClass('warning'); $message->text->addParagraph('First para'); $message->text->addParagraph('Second para');
Text may not have embedded elements, although that may change in the future.
