       Jifty::Web::PageRegion - Defines a page region


       Describes a region of the page which contains a Mason fragment which can be updated via
       AJAX or via query parameters.

       Creates a new page region.  The possible arguments in the "PARAMHASH" are:

           The (unqualified) name of the region.  This is used to generate a unique id -- it
           should consist of only letters and numbers.

           The path to the fragment that this page region contains.  Defaults to
           "/__jifty/empty", which, as its name implies, is empty.

       arguments (optional) (formerly 'defaults')
           Specifies an optional set of parameter defaults.  These should all be simple scalars,
           as they might be passed across HTTP if AJAX is used.

           See Jifty::Web::Form::Element for a list of the supported parameters.

       force_arguments (optional)
           Specifies an optional set of parameter values. They will override anything sent by the
           user or set via AJAX.

       force_path (optional)
           A fixed path to the fragment that this page region contains.  Overrides anything set
           by the user.

       parent (optional)
           The parent Jifty::Web::PageRegion that this region is enclosed in.

       region_wrapper (optional)
           A boolean; whether or not the region, when rendered, will include the HTML region
           preamble that makes Javascript aware of its presence.  Defaults to true.

       lazy (optional)
           Delays the loading of the fragment until client render-time.  Obviously, does not work
           with downlevel browsers which don't support javascript.

       loading_path (optional)
           The fragment to display while the client fetches the actual region.  Make this
           lightweight, or you'll be losing most of the benefits of lazy loading!

   name [NAME]
       Gets or sets the name of the page region.

   qualified_name [NAME]
       Gets or sets the fully qualified name of the page region.  This should be unique on a
       page.  This is usually set by "enter", based on the page regions that this region is
       inside.  See "qualified_region" in Jifty::Web.

   default_path [PATH]
       Gets or sets the default path of the fragment.  This is overridden by "path".

   path [PATH]
       Gets or sets the path that the fragment actually contains.  This overrides "default_path".

   default_argument NAME [VALUE]
       Gets or sets the default value of the "NAME" argument.  This is used as a fallback, and
       also to allow generated links to minimize the amount of state they must transmit.

   argument NAME [VALUE]
       Gets or sets the actual run-time value of the page region.  This usually comes from HTTP
       parameters.  It overrides the "default_argument" of the same "NAME".

   arguments [HASHREF]
       Sets all arguments at once, or returns all arguments.  The latter will also include all
       default arguments.

       Enters the region; this sets the qualified name based on "qualified_region" in Jifty::Web,
       and uses that to pull runtime values for the "path" and "argument"s from the
       "state_variables" in Jifty::Request before overriding them with the "force" versions.

       Exits the page region, if it is the most recent one.  Normally, you won't need to call
       this by hand; however, if you are calling "enter" by hand, you will need to call the
       corresponding "exit".

       Deals with the bulk of the effort to show a page region.  Returns a string of the fragment
       and associated javascript (if any).

       Calls "enter", outputs the results of "as_string", and then calls "exit".  Returns an
       empty string.

       Outputs the results of the region to the current buffer.

   get_element [RULES]
       Returns a CSS2 selector which selects only elements under this region which fit the
       "RULES".  This method is used by AJAX code to specify where to add new regions.

       Returns the client cacheable state of the regions path. Returns false if the template has
       not been marked as client cacheable. Otherwise it returns the string "static" or "action"
       based on the cacheable attribute set on the template.

       Returns the template as JavaScript code.
