* The <code>PPP_Messaging</code> interface contains pointers to functions
* that you must implement to handle postMessage events on the associated
* DOM element.
interface PPP_Messaging {
* HandleMessage() is a function that the browser calls when PostMessage()
* is invoked on the DOM element for the module instance in JavaScript. Note
* that PostMessage() in the JavaScript interface is asynchronous, meaning
* JavaScript execution will not be blocked while HandleMessage() is
* processing the message.
* @param[in] instance A <code>PP_Instance</code> identifying one instance
* of a module.
* @param[in] message A <code>PP_Var</code> which has been converted from a
* JavaScript value. JavaScript array/object types are supported from Chrome
* M29 onward. All JavaScript values are copied when passing them to the
* plugin.
* When converting JavaScript arrays, any object properties whose name
* is not an array index are ignored. When passing arrays and objects, the
* entire reference graph will be converted and transferred. If the reference
* graph has cycles, the message will not be sent and an error will be logged
* to the console.
* The following JavaScript code invokes <code>HandleMessage</code>, passing
* the module instance on which it was invoked, with <code>message</code>
* being a string <code>PP_Var</code> containing "Hello world!"
* <strong>Example:</strong>
* @code
* <body>
* <object id="plugin"
* type="application/x-ppapi-postMessage-example"/>
* <script type="text/javascript">
* document.getElementById('plugin').postMessage("Hello world!");
* </script>
* </body>
* @endcode
void HandleMessage([in] PP_Instance instance, [in] PP_Var message);
