DESCRIPTION ^

Create sticky forms with HTML::SuperForm.

METHODS ^

sform

alias to superform

superform

Returns a instance of HTML::SuperForm preconfigured with sticky and fallback options on. See HTML::SuperForm for more information and examples.

EXAMPLE USING TT PLUGIN ^

A simplistic but working app SuperForm, TT and AutoRunmode plugins. TT brings in 'c' var to templates automatically, SuperForm brings in 'sform'.

  Files:

    ./lib/MyApp.pm
    .MyApp/form.tmpl
    ./server.pl

  lib/MyApp.pm

                package MyApp;
                use base 'Titanium';

                use CGI::Application::Plugin::TT;
                use CGI::Application::Plugin::SuperForm;
                use CGI::Application::Plugin::AutoRunmode;

                sub form: Runmode{
                        my $c = shift;
                        $c->tt_process();
                }


                sub process_form(): Runmode{
                        my $c = shift;
                        # do something with user input.
                        # redirect to success page, etc.
                        return "You said: ". $c->query()->param('input1');
                }



                1;    # End of MyApp

  MyApp/form.tmpl

          <html>
                [% c.sform.start_form({method=>"POST"}) %]<br/>
                Say what? [% c.sform.text({name=>"input1"}) %]<br/>
                [% c.sform.hidden({name=>"rm", value=>"process_form"})  %]<br/>
                [% c.sform.submit()%]<br/>
                [% c.sform.end_form() %]<br/>
          </html>

  .server.pl

                use warnings;
                use strict;
                use CGI::Application::Server;
                use lib 'lib';
                use MyApp;

                my $app = MyApp->new(PARAMS => {});
                my $server = CGI::Application::Server->new();
                $server->document_root('.');
                $server->entry_points({
                    '/index.cgi' => $app,
                });
                $server->run;
