Subject: Warns when control is outside form tag even though it is legal
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1022b
In the latest HTML::Form you have the ability to disable the warning messages by not passing option verbose, however if you do it still throws warnings if controls are found outside a form tag. This is legal HTML for at a minimum HTML 4.01 Transitional. following test script fails on warnings against a valid HTML 4.01 transitional page: use strict; use Test::More tests => 2; use Test::NoWarnings; use_ok('HTML::Form'); #Valid HTML my $html = '<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">' .'<html><head><title>No Warnings</title></head><body>' ."<select OnChange='location.href=\"index.php?" ."foo=\"+this.value'>" ."<OPTION value='bar'>bar</OPTION>" ."</body>"; #Shouldn't throw any warnings on valid HTML my $form = HTML::Form->parse($html,''); Throws the following warning: Carp::carp('<option> outside <form>') called at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/HTML/ line 114 Perl 5.6.1 on FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE-p17
