Subject [Woody multi page forms] was Re: cvs commit:cocoon-2.1/src/blocks/woody/java/org/apache/cocoon/woody/flow/javascriptwoody.js
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2003 03:36:06 GMT
BTW that flowscript code was written with the intention of supporting 
multi-page Woody forms with automated back/forward navigation as in 
JXForms. However, when I looked into implementing this I discovered that 
Woody forms cannot be presented in multiple pages because apparently the 
entire form is "submitted" with each request. As a result the fields 
that are not presented in the first page fail validation because they 
have no values. Or am I missing something?

In addition, the "validator" function in show() was not intended to 
return a value. I did that originally simply because it wasn't possible 
to programatically add validation errors to the form widgets themselves 
at the time it was written (not sure if that's still the case).
