hello there
I love using HTML::FormFu in these two aspects:
1) Validation - oh ,yeah :)
2) configuration (via yaml in my case)


nevertheless, is there any way we can control the rendering (in TT2)?
From what has been done in the catalyst tute for html::FormFu, i
noticed that it just lists down form elements line by line...
I am sure there are websites whereby the graphics designer would place
form elements in different styles..

This is a great tool. Please educate us more:)

thank you

    I agree it is a great tool - shame the mailing list is down.

    I think you have to set the attribute id/class for element (or
    fieldset) and use css to position those elements.

    - type: Checkbox
    name: truefalse
    label: True or False
    attributes:
    title: Is this true or is this false
    class: leftCheckBoxes



    Good luck,
    Dp.

    The FormFu list uses the same server as this catalyst list - so it's
    probably not down ;)

    The old rawmode.org address has been killed though.
    I think all the documentation has been updated, but if you got the old
    address from somewhere recently, can you let me know where, and I'll
    try to get it fixed.

    Cheers,

    Hi, there,

    Thank you Dermot for your response.
    I am not sure i see how introducing a class element for the element
    would help.

    For example, if we hand coded the form, we would have something like:


    <form method="post" action="...">
    ...

    <h3>Accessories</h3>
    <table border="0">
    <tr>

    <td>
    <input type="checkbox" name="battery"
    value="battery">additional battery
    </td>

    <td>
    <input type="checkbox" name="charger"
    value="charger">spare charger
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>

    <td>
    <input type="checkbox" name="screen_cleaner"
    value="screen_cleaner">screen cleaner
    </td>

    <td>
    <input type="checkbox" name="laptop_bag"
    value="laptop_bag">laptop carrybag
    </td>

    </tr>

    </table>


    <input type="submit" name="submit" Value="Submit">
    </form>



    Question: How do we have a form generated like the one above using
    HTML::FormFu?

    thank you.

    Question: How do we have a form generated like the one above using
    HTML::FormFu?
    I am not aware of a method for shoe-horning fields/fieldsets into a
    table within FormFu. It could be done with css selectors but I can't
    advise you on that. I think you should post to FormFu (not the
    Catalyst list). Someone there might detail you how you can do it.

    Good luck,
    Dp.

    If anyone has seen another tutorial (aside the one in the Catalyst manual),
    please post the link here. Would help a lot :)

    Thank you

    Try including the following line in your yaml:

    auto_id: %n

    This will add an id attribute to every element tag, using the element name.

    By the way, please join the HTML::FormFu mailing list as this is a good
    place to post such questions: html-formfu@lists.scsys.co.uk

    Try this:

    script/myapp_create.pl HTML::FormFu

    Then go into $app_root/root/formfu and confirm the templates have been created.

    Next add 'render_method: tt' to your form config.

    Caching is another matter.
