A while ago (Click v0.6?) I submitted an "AutoForm" component that needed some work by better people than I - the AutoForm would take a bean and generate a fully-loaded form containing text fields, IntegerFields, whatever. A properties file was used to further refine the display (eg declare hidden fields, display order).

In short, it would be nice to have a BeanForm component - someone told me that Tapestry 5 has something similar.

The goal is, of course, to make bean editing in click as simple as declaring the AutoForm/BeanForm, associating a bean with it and that's it.

Hi Bob,

I wish to add some new controls to click-extras in 2.1.0.

For example, HiddenList that send multi parameters using hidden field.
I raised an issue about HiddenList on JIRA:

And I have some more ideas about additional controls.
