Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-520) Button should be rendered as "button"
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 16:24:12 GMT

Joseph Schmidt commented on CLK-520:
------------------------------------

> I agree that button has much better rendering capabilities, however IE doesn't play well
with it. 
http://code.google.com/p/ie-button-fix/

I also use PNG fix (and other fixes for IE as well) in order not be forced to code twice allot
of dirty things - so not just style but JS too (I guess jQuery plays pretty portable here).

> Button controls should be rendered as "button" HTML elements not as "input".
> The actual implementation seems to use "input" of type "button" but that is quite misleading
since with
> that type of tag, it's not possible to embed icons or span tags or something else(the
"button" tag would normally allow) in the button to make it look better or what the requirements
ask.
> The "input" element seems to have only a "value" attribute.
> E.g. adding an icon before the button text (in the button body) it's a very common requirement
(so I think it should work as default).
> Button tag also has "type" (e.g. of 'submit', 'cancel' , 'button'), so derived controls
of class Button would behave as before.
> thanks,
> Joseph.
