Creative Commons currently provides two methods for integrating license selection into applications: the [[Partner Interface]] and the [[Creative Commons Web Services|web service API]].  The CC Javascript Widget will provide an additional, lightweight method for integrating license selection into web applications.  When complete the widget will be used in [[WpLicense]] as well.

'''Note that the JsWidget is currently under development and is not yet available.'''
== Sample Usage ==
      <script src="http://example.creativecommons.org/widget/1.0/source.js"></script>
        function init_widget() {
            // generate the Creative Commons license selector as a form element
            // with the name "selected_license"
            var license_selector = new CC_selector();
            document.getElementById("widget_container").innerHTML = license_selector.html("selected_license");
        } // init_widget
    <body onload="init_widget();">
        &lt;div id="widget_container">
== Requirements ==
We have identified the following requirements for the Javascript widget:
* Generate HTML suitable for use in a form which presents the basic license selector
* Provide compatibility with all [http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/articles/gbs/ A-grade browsers]
* Provide up to date license information by either:
** Utilizing the [[Creative Commons Web Services]], or
** Utilizing licenses.xml to generate the appropriate Javascript on the server side
* Provide a robust, scalable serving solution (if any server-side processing is needed) in order to support CC-hosted Javascript resources for the general public
== Resources ==
* [http://cctools.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/cctools/cclib/trunk/js/ cclib/trunk/js] in Subversion contains the Javascript used for the [http://labs.creativecommons.org/dhtmllicense/ DHTML License Selector]
