FAQ
i can't get Plugin::FillInForm to work. i've found why it's failing
but not how to fix it.

before fillinform is called, the page source contains input tags like
this:

<input value="" name="login" id="login" type="NOT_BLANK" />

the NOT_BLANK property is coming from some part of the app, not from
my template, and it's causing HTML::FillInForm to ignore the input
control (see below for example code to prove this). my guess is that
the "NOT_BLANK" comes from Plugin::FormValidator::Simple, but i've
followed the examples exactly:

$c->form(
firstname => [qw/ NOT_BLANK ASCII /, [ qw/ LENGTH 1 32 /]],
lastname => [qw/ NOT_BLANK ASCII /, [ qw/ LENGTH 1 32 /]],
);

i've even removed the 'firstname' option from the form entirely, and
i'm still getting "NOT_BLANK" in the output. i'm totally puzzled.

if it's helpful, i've also included my 'use' and 'config' statements
from the root package. thanks in advance for any help.

this code spits out a control with no value and a "NOT_BLANK" type.
remove the 'type' property and it works as expected.

#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI;
use HTML::FillInForm;

my $q = new CGI;
$q->param( 'firstname', 'joe' );
print HTML::FillInForm->new->fill(
fobject => $q,
scalarref => \'<input name="firstname" type="NOT_BLANK" />',
);
