Subject [jira] Commented: (BEEHIVE-863) Passing a FormBean to a popup

Carlin Rogers commented on BEEHIVE-863:

Rich, thanks for giving this patch a review. Yes, I'll make the suggested name change in
and fix the bogus copy/paste javadoc comment. 

In, I had the new function that pops up with a form separate because we
already had the popup window as a last argument so that it could be optional to anyone who
had created their own popupFunc. In V1, there are only four arguments (url, name, features,
replace) but with the fix to BEEHIVE-542, we added the name of the popup window. I think you're
right, that another optional argument in this case should not be an issue, but I was worried
that it wasn't obvious to users. I'll add this change, along with the others and create a
new patch.

> A popup is currently reached via a nested action, however, you can't pass a FormBean
(and more importantly, its values) from a parent action to the nested action for use in the
popup.  An example of how you may want to use this would be:
> 	>       1) parent form/page has a "To" text field in a form.
> 	>       2) I type in ""
> 	>       3) click the button (netui:button popup=true) to trigger the popup in the
parent page
> 	>       4) popup has its own form/page that has a "To" text field.
> 	>       5) When the popup renders, the popups "To" field should be prepopulated with
the "hello" value.
> You can currently pass the values of a popup to the parent, thus you should be able to
go the other way (pass the parent values to the popup) with a given framework way other than
constructing some javascript to do this in a custom manner.  One reason why this probably
doesn't currently work, is when you click the netui:button it doesn't submit the parent form,
thus the form and values don't get persisted for use by the popup.
> This is currently a very limiting shortcoming of using popups.
