Jifty::Web::Form - Tools for rendering and dealing with HTML forms



    new ARGS

Creates a new Jifty::Web::Form. Arguments:
id The HTML id attribute given to the form. This is aliased to name. That is, name and id are always equal and changing one changes the other.
class The HTML class attribute given to the form.
name The name given to the form. This is mostly for naming specific forms for testing.
call All buttons in this form will act as continuation calls for the given continuation id.
disable_autocomplete Disable <B>browserB> autocomplete for this form. Jifty autocomplete will still work.

    PRIVATE _init

Reinitialize this form.
name The form name
call The continuation id to call


Returns a reference to a hash of Jifty::Action objects in this form keyed by moniker.

If you want to add actions to this form, use add_action

    name [VALUE]

Gets or sets the HTML name given to the form element.

    call [CONTID]

Gets or sets the continuation ID that will be called for this form.

    is_open [BOOL]

This accessor returns true if Jifty is currently in the middle of rendering a form (if it’s printed a <form> but not yet printed a </form> tag.) Use this in your components to decide whether to open a form or not if you might be called from a template that opened the form for you.

    add_action PARAMHASH

Calls new_action in Jifty::Web with the paramhash given, and adds it to the form.

    register_action ACTION

Adds ACTION as an action for this form. Called so that actions’ form fields can register the action against the form they’re being used in.

    has_action MONIKER

If this form has an action whose moniker is MONIKER, returns it. Otherwise returns undef.


Renders the opening form tag.


Renders a submit button with the text MESSAGE on it (which will be HTML escaped). Returns the empty string (for ease of use in interpolation). Any extra PARAMETERS are passed to Jifty::Web::Form::Field::Clickable’s constructor.


Renders a return button with the text MESSAGE on it (which will be HTML escaped). Returns the empty string (for ease of use in interpolation). Any extra PARAMETERS are passed to Jifty::Web::Form::Field::Button’s constructor.


Renders the closing form tag (including rendering errors for and registering all of the actions) After doing this, it resets its internal state such that start may be called again.

    print_action_registration MONIKER

Print out the action registration goo for this action _right now_, unless we’ve already done so.

    next_page PARAMHASH

Set the page this form should go to on success. This simply creates a Jifty::Action::Redirect action; any parameters in the PARAMHASH are passed as arguments to the Jifty::Action::Redirect action.

Returns an empty string so it can be included in forms


Checks to ensure that forms that were opened were actually closed, which is when actions are registered.
