#17083 closed enhancement (fixed)

[patch] [cla] dojo._ioSetArgs() should use document.URL if form action is not provided

Reported by: Thomas Bachem Owned by: dylan
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.11
Component: IO Version: 1.8.3

A <form> element without an action attribute defined submits to the document.URL's location by default. All major browsers do this since I can think, and it is now also defined in the HTML5 spec:

"The action IDL attribute must reflect the content attribute of the same name, except that on getting, when the content attribute is missing or its value is the empty string, the document's address must be returned instead." (

So we should improve dojo/xhr, specifically dojo._ioSetArgs(), to handle an empty action attribute accordingly when using the form property with dojo/xhr.
