CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



   use HTML::FieldForm;
   use HTML::Field;
  
   # Object constructor
   my $form = HTML::FieldForm->new(   
     part_number      => [ Textfield, {
                            primary_key => 1,
                       } ],
     description      => [ Textarea, {
                            cols        => 60,
                            rows        => 6,
                       } ],
     purchasing_code =>  [ Select, {
                            options     => \@purchasing_codes,
                            labels      => \%purch_codes_labels,
                       } ],
   );
  
   # The returned object is a hash of HTML::Field objects keyed by name:
   my $part_number = $form->{part_number};
  
   # Set the value of the fields from a hash ref
   my %values = (part_number => 16-0021, description => Brushplate);
   $form->set_values(\%values);

   # Set the value of the fields from a CGI object
   my $query = new CGI;
   $form->set_values($query);

   # Get the values of all the fields in a hash
   my %data = $form->get_values;

   # Reset all the field values to their defaults
   $form->reset_values;
  
   # Get a hash with editable or read only html (fieldname => html)
   # Specially useful for HTML::Template
   my %editable = $form->editable_html;
   my %readonly = $form->readonly_html;
   my %creation = $form->creation_html;
  
   # Request XHTML instead of HTML
   $field_form->set_xhtml(1); # Gets xhtml
   $field_form->set_xhtml(0); # Gets html (default)
  
   # Request the addition of an ID selector for each form field
   # (same as its name)
   $field_form->add_id;
  
   # These two last methods return the HTML::FieldForm object, so that
   # you can say:
   %editable = $field_form->xhtml(1)->add_id->editable_html;



DESCRIPTION

The goal of this simple module is to perform common actions over a set of HTML form fields in order to get rid of some of the tedious of scripting CGI.
