Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to save persistent data and then restore it when restarting the application by using the methods widget.setPreferenceForKey() and widget.preferenceForKey(), respectively.

Source: Relevant HTML components

<div id="bodyContent" class="bodyContent">
<label for="txt">Text:</label>
<input id="txt" type="text"></input>
<input type="button" onclick="saveString();" value="Save" />
</div>

Source

// Initializes the widget
function init() {
// ...
 
// Loads the saved string into the input field if the key exists
var savedString = widget.preferenceForKey("key");
if (savedString != null) {
document.getElementById("txt").value = savedString;
}
}
 
// Saves the string from the input field to persistent storage.
function saveString( ) {
widget.setPreferenceForKey(document.getElementById("txt").value, "key");
alert("String saved.");
}

Postconditions

Upon loading, text that corresponds to key in the persistent storage is displayed. You can change the text and use the Save button to save it. It will be restored the next time the widget is launched.

Supplementary material

This code snippet is part of the stub concept, which means that it has been patched on top of a template application in order to be more useful to developers. The version of the WRT stub application used as a template in this snippet is v1.1.
