HtmlFormsPlugin

ALERT! NOTE: This plugin is no longer maintained. It is replaced by the FormPlugin

This plugin can be used to make html forms that set TWikiVariables. SELECT, CHECKBOX and RADIO can be used to select from a comma separated list of options (that could be defined using a SEARCH), while BUTTON, TEXTVALUE and TEXTAREA will set the TWikiVariable based on the value.

I will be using SELECT to allow the user to set a variable to a set of topics, which they will later publish to a web site using TWiki:Plugins/PublishContrib.

Syntax Rules

  • %CHECKBOX{}%
  • %RADIO{}%
  • %SELECT{}%
    • options="" - the comma separated list of options, or VARIABLE containing or resulting in such a list (SEARCH is valid)
    • currentvalue="" - single value, or comma separated list of values as appropriate
    • destinationaddress="Web.Topic.VARIABLENAME" (and where Web & Topic can be left out for the usual context driven locations
  • %TEXTVALUE{}%
  • %TEXTAREA{}%
  • %BUTTON{}%
    • value="" - the value to set the destination to
    • destinationaddress="Web.Topic.VARIABLENAME" (and where Web & Topic can be left out for the usual context driven locations

future development

  • the addressing scheme is going to change to be XPathy
  • make all buttons submit all changes - just like inline edit!!
  • %FORMVALUES{"Web.FormDefinitionTopic.FormfieldName"}% - returns a comma separated list of options defined for that form field
  • later make a TOM like destination and source value syntax to get values from text, formfields etc

Examples

select multiple values from a scrolling selection list, and set WHOWILLITBENOW in Sandbox.WebHome topic

%SELECT{options="mary, peter, annabel, nicky, jennifer" currentvalue="%WHOWILLITBENOW%" destinationaddress="Sandbox.WebHome.WHOWILLITBENOW"}%
