#800 closed defect (fixed)

Button widget cannot submit forms

Description

It's not possible to use the dojo::Button as the triggering mechanism to submit a form. For example, changing line 84 of the dojo.io.FormBind? example (http://mastodon.dojotoolkit.org/~david/formBind/):

<input type="submit" name="save" value="Save" />

into something like:

<button dojoType="Button" onclick="document.myformname.submit(); return false;" id="buttonId" >save</button>

When I try to apply this change it does not pass through the FormBind? handlers (nor load, nor onsubmit).

Presumably there needs to be a hidden <button> object that gets pressed when the button is clicked.

event handlers do not get transferred to the dom node here... should they be copied in?

Actually, event handlers are used here... the main issue I see with firefox at least is that your form still has to have a submit button, even if it is hidden, for it to be possible to submit a form. I'll add this to dojo.book and close.

Actually, the reason I wrote this bug is because I don't want users to have to have a hidden submit button. If you think about degradability (if javascript is disabled), and also ease of use, then it's clear that

<button dojoType="Button" type="submit">

needs to work the same as

<button type="submit">

I tried to write the contract here: http://manual.dojotoolkit.org/WikiHome/DojoDotBook/Book44

Anyway, I can deal with this bug for 0.5.

This should be fixed with the new Button widget
