13.1 Overview

Cycle class generates the well known cycle gadgets. However, MUI cycle gadgets feature a (configurable) popup menu to avoid clicking through many entries.

When you declare a cycle gadget, you have to use the <item> tag to fill the cycle gadget with items. Every cycle gadget needs to have at least one item.

Here is an example XML excerpt for creating a cycle gadget:

<cycle id="printer">
    <item>HP Deskjet</item>
    <item>NEC P6</item>
    <item>Okimate 20</item>

The cycle entries that you specify using the <item> tag can use text formatting codes. See Text formatting codes for details.
