Re: ANN: Examploforms 0.1
Good work Micah, but I am immediately left with some detail questions: (1) Inability to specify minLength only. Would it be possible to add a construct for this by doing something like: "dt:dtname-88-unbounded". Adding unbounded would indicate no maxLength. This is probably not the best solution but it feels as though something is needed here. (2) Is it possible to reuse enum values? I didn't see a mechanism to refer to an arbitrary datatype-- so I must assume that the only way to specify an enumeration is through the dt:enum-value1-value2 facility. These leaves a lot to be desired-- especially when you have a form with multiple state/language/country enumerations. If instead there were a way to name the enumeration and refer back to that enumeration you could maintain the declaration in one place. Of course this would be easy to do with DTD entities as well : ) (3) In future versions do you plan any way to override the textarea/maxLength functionality? So that you can create textareas for items with no maxLength?
