HTML id property

Postby ctammes » Thu Jun 26, 2008 4:46 am


Is it possible for GWT Designer to generate an id-property with the variable name? I use Selenium to test and using an id makes things easier.

So, instead of
Code: Select all
<button type="button" class="gwt-Button">OK</button>

I would like to have somthing like
Code: Select all
<button id="okButton" type="button" class="gwt-Button">OK</button>

When I add this property using Firebug, Selenium does the job.

In the latest build, if you turn on the Designer > Code Generation > Variable Names > Set variable name in widget data preference, Designer will add code like the following...

Code: Select all
DOM.setElementProperty(button4.getElement(), "id", "button4");
