Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

Hi Oleg – I’m happy with your explanations. If this could be coded as an extension of output_form (and also using your short-tag) then I’d be super happy!

Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

Ok, they have landed in dev branch, without short tags and smart yield unsetting atm. This should work, please test:

<!-- create a form called "my_link" -->
<a href="<txp:yield name="href" />" class="<txp:yield name="class">default</txp:yield>"><txp:yield /></a>

<!-- call -->
<txp:output_form form="my_link" href="#">Click me!</txp:output_form>

<!-- should output -->
<a href="#" class="default">Click me!</a>

Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

Interesting thread; would it be possible to add a value or default attribute to <txp:yield /> to provide a default value?

Yes, currently it’s the content:

<txp:yield name="test">default value</txp:yield>

I also like makss idea: <txp:yield name="test" value="default value" />.

Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

Again, as long as the default values of yield can be within the form itself, I’m super happy! Probably favouring Makss idea of yield syntax – although does a container tag provide more options for content? Dunno.

Nothing to stop us providing both, like we do with the form attribute in other tags at present. Container overrides value, probably, in the same way as container overrides form in other tags?

That would be nice and introduce some consistency with <txp:variable />.

Re: Shortcodes (as seen in rah_beacon)

Ok, let have both. Also, should <txp:output_form form="some_form" wraptag="p" /> consider wraptag as global attribute, or as <txp:yield name="wraptag" /> (current case)?

I love this feature. After reviewing a tonne of off-the-shelf software out there for delivering topic-based documentation, I’ve tentatively started using (a plugin-customised) Txp for it instead, and this feature is fabulous for parameterizing reusable Forms.

should <txp:output_form form="some_form" wraptag="p" /> consider wraptag as global attribute, or as <txp:yield name="wraptag" /> (current case)?

Whichever offers the user the fewest surprises. I would be tempted to say that it should wrap the entire content, in the same way that any other wraptag/class combo does in Txp. If someone wants a different wraptag for the yield, they should add the attribute to that tag. Unless I’ve missed some subtle nuance here.

No, it’s only semantics. A yield called class looks more natural than my_class.

Edit: also, global attributes set being plugin-extensible, a form yield attribute can inadvertently become global.

Ah yes, allowing arbitrary attributes for the output_form tag opens the possiblity of clashes with global attributes. Hadn’t thought of that. Hmmm…
