VERSION

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

    my @options = qw( small medium large );
    print select('size', \@options);

DESCRIPTION

NOTE: This module is very alpha code. Use at your own risk!

This module has some handy routines for creating HTML form elements. Each helper routine may optionally pass an object as its first argument. It is expected that this object will have an accessor with the same name as the one specified as the second argument so that the form elements can be initialized with the object's values by default.

radio([OBJ], NAME, [VALUES], [SEPARATOR])

Examples:

    radio('item', [ 'hat', 'shirt', 'shorts' ])
    radio($obj, 'size', [ 'small', 'medium', 'large' ])
text([OBJ], NAME, VALUE, [ ATTR ])

Examples:

    text('title')
    text($person, 'name') %>
    text($person, 'dob', { size => 8 })
select([OBJ], NAME, OPTIONS, [KEY], [VALUE], [ ATTR ])

Example:

    select('priority', [ 'low','medium','high' ])
checkbox([OBJ], NAME, CHECKED, [ ATTR ])

Example:

button([OBJ], NAME, [VALUE], [ ATTR ])

Example:

hidden([OBJ], NAME, VALUE, [ ATTR ] )
