Subject: HTML::Form Feature Request: Find/Set form inputs using element ID
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 524b
The current implementation references form input elements using the element's name attribute. For the most part this works fine, however it seems not everyone likes to play nice and assign stable names to form elements. Consequently, it would be helpful to have a means of referencing form inputs using id attributes. For example, Apple's iTunes Connect interface assigns elements a dotted-numeric name (eg. name="9.11.1") that changes every time they update the page. Each element does appear to get a stable id attribute.

Implemented in You can now do stuff like: $form->value("#id", 42); to set the value of the input with an ID of "id".
