Prev:COMPONENT:


As an example, let's develop a custom Chloe component which renders an image stored in a form value. Since the component does not require any configuration, we can define a singleton class:
SINGLETON: image

Now we define a method on the render* generic word which renders the image using XML literals:
M: image render* 2drop [XML <img src=<-> /> XML] ;

Finally, we can define a Chloe component:
COMPONENT: image

We can use it as follows, assuming the current form has a value named image:
<t:image t:name='image' />
