WriteElementString Method

Sets a value of the next element in the current segment to a simple value.

Syntax

edifactwriter.writeElementString(value, [callback])

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

Use the WriteElementString method to specify a value for the next data element with simple content on the current segment.

To write a composite data element, even if it has a single sub-element, use the StartElement and WriteComponentString methods instead.
