FormOperations plugin: Cannot modify properties of a hidden form field

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Plugin_Other Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: FormOperations


FormOperations? plugin supports creation of hidden form fields. However these vanish from the editor right after hidden property is set. This makes it impossible to modify these fields afterwards.

Hidden fields should be editable like normal text fields in editor and hidden only in final html code.

As far as I remember, this is only a problem in Gecko, IE displays them as visible text fields.

Gecko has other problems with editing form fields, namely with selecting them. Unfortunatly, it's not something we can fix.

This hidden field problem is not very easily fixed either.

Perhaps if there was a temporary CSS style applied in the editor that worked like the anchor plugin's placeholder... It could display a rectangular area with an icon showing there was a field. Or, more like the anchor plugin, if a specifically a hidden field was created, there could be a class added that would generate the placeholder. The title could be the field name = the field value, so mousing over in the editor would show a tooltip...

Nope, doesn't work. I missunderstood the issue. Firefox refuses to show hidden fields in the editor, even if a style is applied.

Inactive, and probably nothing really can be done until (maybe already) Gecko handles editing of form fields a bit better.

FormOperations? is... old.
