Subject RE: Re: CONTRIBUTION: forms-calendar-styling defect when widget disabled WAS repeater-widget (insert row): InsertRowsActionDefinition
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2005 18:57:47 GMT
  Well actually, the readonly="readonly" works! Try it!!! And there are some
cases where disabled="disabled" is problematic (binding/saving) and I think
something else I can't remember right now (pulldown selections? calendar
selections? - can't remember). (note {at-symbol} above must be translated to
@ - seems that symbol is not allowed on the archives.)

Sorry, but I really don't know what you're talking about. Is this 'readonly'
in the binding? If so, what's the relation with the styling XSLs??

It is in the template file, <fi:styling> tag. I believe that
readonly="readonly" simply gets passed along as an attribute to the "input"
tag and is valid xhtml which the browser then interprets to be like
disabled="disabled", but slightly different. Here's an example usage:

<ft:widget id="StatusMessage">
  <fi:styling readonly="readonly" type="textarea" rows="4" cols="75"

Anyway, inserting that small code segment in the source (see below) and then
playing with the samples to disable the calendar widget will show you what I
mean - and try readonly as a styling attribute to see that at work too. Then
try disabling the calendar without my modifications and you'll notice that
the date can be changed, even though the widget is disabled.

have a "2 line" minor tweak to the forms-calendar-styling.xsl that
disables the "calendar icon/popup" when a datetype="date" widget is set to
readonly, disabled, or hidden (in these cases, we don't want an icon or
popup - ESPECIALLY when the widget is supposed to be "hidden").The change
was simple, in
cocoon/samples/blocks/forms/resources/forms-calendar-styling.xslI added:
<xsl:if test="not(fi:{at-symbol}disabled='disabled'] or
fi:{at-symbol}readonly='readonly'] or fi:{at-symbol}hidden='hidden'])">
around the calendar HTML anchor.The modified code segment in that file now
   <!-- calendar popup -->
   <xsl:if test="not(fi:{at-symbol}disabled='disabled'] or
fi:{at-symbol}readonly=readonly'] or fi:{at-symbol}hidden='hidden'])">
   <a href="#" name="{$id}" id="{$id}"
{$format}'); return false;">
     <img src="{$resources-uri}/cal.gif" border="0" alt="Calendar"/>
   </xsl:if>All that I added was the surrounding <xsl:if> block. It works
great!!Should I move this to a separate CONTRIBUTION thread or is this
simpleenough that you would just get it into the cvs archive??
