Contentment::Form::Widget::Hidden - Purely server-side form data


  my $form = Contentment::Form->define(
      # ...
      widgets => {
          foo => {
              name  => 'foo',
              class => 'Hidden',
      # ...

  # There's no need to render this widget. The render methods do nothing.


This is the anti-widget. This provides form storage without actually sending the client anything. The render methods for this widget do nothing, so you don't even need to bother calling them if you don't want to.

The constructor accepts the following arguments:

name (required)

The name of the value to store in the form.

value (required)

The value to store in this field. This value cannot be modified by anything the client does making it extremely safe. Thus, no validation is really necessary. Also, this value may contain any data that can be serialized by YAML.
