HTML::FieldForm(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   HTML::FieldForm(3)

NAME
       FieldForm -- Handle HTML	forms with Field objects

SYNOPSIS
	  use HTML::FieldForm;
	  use HTML::Field;

	  # Object constructor
	  my $form = HTML::FieldForm->new(
	    part_number	     =>	[ 'Textfield', {
				   primary_key => 1,
			      }	],
	    description	     =>	[ 'Textarea', {
				   cols	       => 60,
				   rows	       => 6,
			      }	],
	    purchasing_code =>	[ 'Select', {
				   options     => \@purchasing_codes,
				   labels      => \%purch_codes_labels,
			      }	],
	  );

	  # The	returned object	is a hash of HTML::Field objects keyed by name:
	  my $part_number = $form->{part_number};

	  # Set	the value of the fields	from a hash ref
	  my %values = (part_number => '16-0021', description => 'Brushplate');
	  $form->set_values(\%values);

	  # Set	the value of the fields	from a CGI object
	  my $query = new CGI;
	  $form->set_values($query);

	  # Get	the values of all the fields in	a hash
	  my %data = $form->get_values;

	  # Reset all the field	values to their	defaults
	  $form->reset_values;

	  # Get	a hash with editable or	read only html (fieldname => html)
	  # Specially useful for HTML::Template
	  my %editable = $form->editable_html;
	  my %readonly = $form->readonly_html;
	  my %creation = $form->creation_html;

	  # Request XHTML instead of HTML
	  $field_form->set_xhtml(1); # Gets xhtml
	  $field_form->set_xhtml(0); # Gets html (default)

	  # Request the	addition of an ID selector for each form field
	  # (same as its name)
	  $field_form->add_id;

	  # These two last methods return the HTML::FieldForm object, so that
	  # you	can say:
	  %editable = $field_form->xhtml(1)->add_id->editable_html;

DESCRIPTION
       The goal	of this	simple module is to perform common actions over	a set
       of HTML form fields in order to get rid of some of the tedious of
       scripting CGI.
