Fill block content hole reporter

Description

Reporter for templates with a block content hole. A block hole is a hole that can contain paragraphs or any other type of content. Other reporters use this BlockContent reporter to fill block holes in their templates. Reporters have methods that return instances of this object. Using these object instances, you can customize the format of the content used to fill the block holes in their templates. For example, for the BaseTable reporter, the getContentReporter method returns the instance that the BaseTable reporter uses to fill the Content hole in its template. To customize the content format, specify a custom template for the BlockContent reporter returned by the getContentReporter method.

Note

Reporters create instances of this object. You do not need to create this object yourself.

  • 1-by-N or N-by-1 array of strings or DOM objects
