HTML::FormHandler::Widget::Theme::Bootstrap - sample bootstrap theme


version 0.40068


Also see HTML::FormHandler::Manual::Rendering.

Sample Bootstrap theme role. Can be applied to your subclass of HTML::FormHandler. Sets the widget wrapper to 'Bootstrap' and renders form messages using Bootstrap formatting and classes.

There is an example app using Bootstrap at

This is a lightweight example of what you could do in your own custom Bootstrap theme. The heavy lifting is done by the Bootstrap wrapper, HTML::FormHandler::Widget::Wrapper::Bootstrap, which you can use by itself in your form with:

    has '+widget_wrapper' => ( default => 'Bootstrap' );

It also uses HTML::FormHandler::Widget::Theme::BootstrapFormMessages to render the form messages in a Bootstrap style:

   <div class="alert alert-error">
       <span class="error_message">....</span>

By default this does 'form-horizontal' with 'build_form_element_class'. Implement your own sub to use 'form-vertical':

   sub build_form_element_class { ['form-vertical'] }
