#1641 closed defect (fixed)

Wrong checked propery in Checkbox widget

  1. The error in HtmlCheckBox?.html: checked="${this.checked}"

"checked" must be without argument. <input type="checkbox" checked> - valid. As result, checkbox is always checked (until check-on and check-off manually).

  1. Macros ${this.checked} not changed. If look at generated HTML code in FF, we can see checked="${this.checked}" as is.

re: point 1. See HTML40 pg 36: Boolean attributes may legally take a single value: the name of the attribute itself (e.g., selected="selected").

So <input type="checkbox" checked="checked"> is also valid. Thus one could use <input type="checkbox" ${this.checked}> and set this.checked='checked="checked"' or this.checked="".

Yes, checked="checked" allowed, but checked="" not allowed and recognized by IE and FF as "checked" state.

"checked" must be without argument.

I was just taking issue with this assertion, not suggesting this is not a bug (or that it is; I've not looked at it closely).
