I'm confused with this.
fields in TWikiForms
don't allow a name: if a label field has a name, it's presented as a regular field, but without nothing to edit. They are shown as what they are (labels) if they don't have names. That's reasonable, but documentation should mention this fact (that label fields can't have names).
I am not sure I understand. I just checked, see TestForm
. Labels have names, and the value can be set for example with a
parameter in edit mode. It works as expected. Labels can be used to store meta data that the user cannot easily change.
Label fields can
have names. But if a label field does not
have a name, it will not be stored in the topic. The reason for this is twofold:
- Large labels can excessively bloat stored topics
- Unnamed label fields can be used for labels that appear when the form is edited, but not when the form is viewed.
Unnamed label fields are a powerful tool for help information. Named label fields work as they did in Cairo.
I thought I had documented this; obviously not. Added to TWikiForms
in SVN 8326
