The default value is an empty string.


The following code would set the initial document contents of EditLive! to be equal to Initial contents of Tiny EditLive!

The HTML tags will not be seen in the window as they will be parsed as HTML. However, these tags will be visible in the Code View option of the EditLive! applet. Also, the title of the document (also only be visible in Code View) will be set to Example.

editlive1.Document = "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Example</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY><P>Initial contents of Tiny EditLive!</P></BODY></HTML>"
ASP.NET Server Control
  Document = "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Example</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY><P>Initial contents of Tiny EditLive!</P></BODY></HTML>" 
<BODY><P>Initial contents of Tiny EditLive!</P></BODY></HTML>"));

The string passed to the JavaScript setDocument property must be URL encoded. It is recommended that a server-side URL encoding function be used if available as the JavaScript URL encoding functions do not fully comply with the URL encoding standard.


The Document property is mutually exclusive with the setBody Method.
