public class NodeChangingAction 
extends java.lang.Object

Utility class containing constants. Specifies the type of node change.


Shows how to use a NodeChangingCallback to monitor changes to the document tree as it is edited.

    builder.writeln("Hello world!");
    builder.write("Cell 1");
    builder.write("Cell 2");

    builder.insertImage(getImageDir() + "Logo.jpg");
