Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-520) Button should be rendered as "button"
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 09:59:12 GMT

Malcolm Edgar commented on CLK-520:
-----------------------------------

The input type="button" actually predates the button element which is by Click uses it in
preference to it (it is/was more widely used).

I don't think this is a bug, however the button is a richer control which deserves more support.
 This could be handled by introducing a rendering option, where people could specify the way
it should be rendered and include img content support.

> 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.
