This read-only property lists child elements of this object.

Custom attributes of this element, specified as an array of mlreportgen.dom.CustomAttribute objects. Use custom attributes supported by the output format.

ID for this document element, specified as a character vector. The DOM generates a session-unique ID when it creates the document element. You can specify your own ID.

This read-only property lists the parent of this document element.

Tag for document element, specified as a character vector.

A session-unique ID is generated as part of document element creation. The generated tag has the form CLASS:ID, where CLASS is the class of the element and ID is the value of the Id property of the object. You can specify a tag to replace the generated tag.

For example, to make it easier to identify where an issue occurred during document generation, you can specify your own tag value.

Format objects that specify the format of a document element.

Name of the style to apply from the style sheet, specified as a character vector.

t = Text('Page ');
pageinfo = Paragraph();
pageinfo.WhiteSpace = 'preserve';
pageinfo.HAlign = 'center';

% Create several pages.
