NAME ^

Form::Factory::Interface::HTML - Simple HTML form interface

VERSION ^

version 0.020

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Form::Factory;

  my $q = CGI->new;
  my $html = '<form>';

  my $form = Form::Factory->new(HTML => {
      renderer => sub { $html .= join('', @_) },
      consumer => sub { shift->Vars },
  });

  my $action = $form->new_action('MyApp::Action::Foo');
  $action->consume_and_clean_and_check_and_process( request => $q );
  $action->render;

  $html .= '</form>';

  print $q->header('text/html');
  print $html;

DESCRIPTION ^

This renders plain HTML forms and consumes value from a hash.

ATTRIBUTES ^

renderer

This is a code reference responsible for printing the HTML elements. The HTML for the controls is passed to this subroutine as a string. The default implementation just prints to the screen.

  sub { print @_ }

consumer

This is a code reference responsible for taking the request object and turning it into a hash reference of values passed in from the HTTP request. The value passed in is the value passed as the request parameter to "consume" in Form::Factory::Action.

METHODS ^

new_widget_for_control

Returns a Form::Factory::Interface::HTML::Widget implementation for the given control.

new_widget_for_button

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::Button.

new_widget_for_checkbox

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::Checkbox.

new_widget_for_fulltext

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::FullText.

new_widget_for_password

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::Password.

new_widget_for_selectmany

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::SelectMany.

new_widget_for_selectone

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::SelectOne.

new_widget_for_text

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::Text.

new_widget_for_value

Returns a widget for a Form::Factory::Control::Value.

render_control

Renders the widget for the given control.

consume_control

Consumes values using the widget for the given control.

CAVEATS ^

When I initially implemented this, using the widget classes made sense. However, the API has changed in some subtle ways since then. Originally, widgets were a required piece of the factory API, but they are not anymore. As such, they don't make nearly as much sense as they once did.

They will probably be removed in a future release.
