Seaside - how to process undefined input

Postby PhotonDemon » Mon Jan 19, 2009 11:11 am

Hi All,

I am being pushed to create a Seaside component that can process input fields that haven't been defined in the form/component. The input fields will be created by javascript when a button is clicked. It is expected that the server will not be involved when this button is clicked. On the button click, a new row of input fields will be created by the javascript in the web browser. The user will enter data into these input fields. This process may be repeated, so many new rows with new input fields may be added. Ultimately, a button or menu item will be clicked and the data sent to the server. I need to catch this data and save and deal with it.

I know this is not the normal way to obtain data but the tail is wagging the dog here :oops: . It would be nice if the elements of each row could be bound to an object but I will take what I can get. Any ideas are welcome.

Louis -

You might find the Seaside mailing list a better place to ask since that's where the Seaside experts hang out.
