The Slot widget EditorPaneWidget supports html text and also has a dynamic hyperlink detector. The functionality of this widget becomes clear from the example.


Example: Consider the newspaper example which is included with Protégé. Suppose for Class ‘Article’ we want to enable detection of hyperlinks for the slot ‘Text’.

1. Click on ‘Forms’ tab at the top and select the class ‘Article’ in the ‘Form Browser’ on the left. Select EditorPaneWidget as the WidgetType for the slot in which you want to enable html and hyperlinks.


2. Switch to the ‘Instances’ tab with class ‘Article’ selected. Select any instance of class ‘Article’ and type the text in the ‘Text’ slot.


3. You would observe that as you go on typing, the slot automatically detects any hyperlinks that you enter and enables them. When you move the mouse over the links, there is a message which prompts you to follow the link by clicking it. Clicking the link opens it in a separate browser.


EditorPaneWidget writes HTML data to the knowledgebase. For a particular slot, if you switch from plain text to EditorPaneWidget (html text) then this html text would be stored in the knowledgebase. If you don’t want html to be written to the knowledgebase, please use EditorPanePlainWidget instead of EditorPaneWidget.


EditorPaneWidget is bundled with the "full" installation of Protege (versions 3.4 beta 110 and higher). The source code for EditorPaneWidget is available from the Protege Subversion repository.
