NAME

HTML::FormHandlerX::Field::JavaScript - a script tag with javascript code supplied via field for HTML::FormHandler.

VERSION

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

This class can be used for fields that need to supply JavaScript code to control or modify the form. It will render the value returned by a form's js_code_<field_name> method, or the field's js_code attribute.

  has_field 'user_update' => ( type => 'JavaScript',
     js_code => q`$('#fldId').on('change', myFunction);`
  );

or using a method:

  has_field 'user_update' => ( type => 'JavaScript' );
  sub js_code_user_update {
     my ( $self, $field ) = @_;
     if( $field->value == 'foo' ) {
        return q`$('#fldId').on('change', myFunction);`;
     }
     else {
        return q`$('#otherFldId').on('change', myOtherFunction);`;
     }
  }
  #----
  has_field 'usernames' => ( type => 'JavaScript' );
  sub js_code_usernames {
      my ( $self, $field ) = @_;
      return q`$('#fldId').on('change', myFunction);`;
  }

or set the name of the code generation method:

   has_field 'user_update' => ( type => 'JavaScript', set_js_code => 'my_user_update' );
   sub my_user_update {
     ....
   }

or provide a 'render_method':

   has_field 'user_update' => ( type => 'JavaScript', render_method => \&render_user_update );
   sub render_user_update {
       my $self = shift;
       ....
       return q(
   <script type="text/javascript">
     // code here
   </script>);
   }

The code generation methods should return a scalar string which will be wrapped in script tags. If you supply your own 'render_method' then you are responsible for calling $self->wrap_data yourself.
