Changes for version 0.02000 - 2007-12-12

  • New HTML::FormFu::Model::DBIC module to replace DBIx::Class::HTML::FormFu
  • New Repeatable block element
  • New "nested" params support. Form and Block elements have a new nested_name() method. Field elements have new nested(), nested_name() and nested_names() methods. Doesn't require CGI::Expand or Catalyst::Plugin::NestedParams
  • Uses new "string" renderer by default - doesn't use template files, Generated markup still exactly the same, Set render_method("tt") to use the template files (old behaviour), render_class_args() renamed to tt_args(), Template files now installed into @INC path by File::ShareDir, INCLUDE_PATH no longer set by default
  • New Checkboxgroup element. Works much like Radiogroup, but with
  • checkboxes
  • Support multiple yaml documents in a single file - calls populate() once for each document
    • Date element now uses names of the form "date_day" instead of "", so as to not conflict with the new nested-params. This should only affect you if your client-side code (CSS, JS) references the field names
  • Group elements (Select, Radiogroup, Checkboxgroup) now support a 'label_loc' argument, to provide the item labels via localize()
  • *_loc() methods now accept an arrayref argument, to allowing setting in YAML config files
  • render() now returns a string, not an object. $form->render->start_form() must be changed to $form->start(), $form->render->end_form() must be changed to $form->end, $form->render->field('foo') must be changed to $form->get_field('foo'), $form->render->hidden_fields() must be changed to $form->hidden_fields()
  • Bugfix: OutputProcessor::Indent was indenting closing tag, when it's value was empty (RT 30239)
  • Bugfix: Objects were getting wrong parents during clone() and auto_fieldset()
