The ParentalRatingSchemeCollection class
Support in HbbTV
Available since: HbbTV 1.0 (ETSI TS 102 796 V1.1.1, OIPF DAE V1.1)
The addParentalRatingScheme() method is not included.
typedef Collection<ParentalRatingScheme> ParentalRatingSchemeCollection
A ParentalRatingSchemeCollection represents a collection of parental rating schemes, e.g. as returned by property parentalRatingSchemes of the “application/oipfParentalControlManager” object as defined in section 7.9.1. Next to the properties and methods defined below a ParentalRatingSchemeCollection object SHALL support the array notation to access the parental rating scheme objects in this collection.
See Annex K for the definition of the collection template. In addition to the methods and properties defined for generic collections, the ParentalRatingSchemeCollection class supports the additional properties and methods defined below.
ParentalRatingScheme addParentalRatingScheme( String name, String values )
Create a new ParentalRatingScheme object and adds it to the ParentalRatingSchemeCollection. Applications MAY use this method to register additional parental rating schemes with the platform. When registered, the new parental rating scheme SHALL (temporarily) be accessible through the parentalRatingSchemes property of the “application/oipfParentalControlmanager” object as defined in section 7.9.1.
The application SHALL make sure that the values are ordered in such a way to allow the rating values to be compared in the manner as defined for the threshold property for the respective parental rating system.
This method returns a reference to the ParentalRatingScheme object representing the added scheme. If the value of the name parameter corresponds to an already-registered rating scheme, this method returns a reference to the existing ParentalRatingScheme object. If the newly defined rating scheme was not known to the OITF, the scheme MAY be stored persistently, and the OITF may offer a UI to set the parental rating blocking criteria for the newly added parental rating scheme.
If the OITF has successfully stored (persistently or not persistently) the additional parental rating scheme, the method SHALL return a non-null ParentalRatingScheme object.
A unique string identifying the parental rating scheme to which this value refers. See property name in section 18.104.22.168 for more information about possible values.
A comma-separated list of the possible values in the rating scheme, in ascending order of severity. In case the rating scheme is one of the [MPEG-7] rating classification schemes, this means that the list of parental rating values contains the values as specified by the <Name> elements of the <Term> elements in the order of appearance as they are defined for the classification scheme, with the exception of the Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) based ratings, for which the reverse order has to be applied. The values must be ordered in such a way to allow the rating values to be compared in the manner as defined for property threshold for the respective parental rating system.
ParentalRatingScheme getParentalRatingScheme( String name )
This method returns a reference to the ParentalRatingScheme object that is associated with the given scheme as specified through parameter “name”. If the value of name does not correspond to the name property of any of the ParentalRatingScheme objects in the ParentalRatingSchemeCollection, the method SHALL return undefined.
The unique name identifying a parental rating scheme.
