feature request: 'anchor' option for tag "form"

Reported by Cyrille37 | April 13th, 2011 @ 09:12 PM | in 1.3 (closed)


It would be nice to add an option "anchor" to the tag #{form /}, like after a call to a Controller.save() we could scroll the page to the right place.

I did it in a hack form tag version, it's very simple:

public class FastTags {
 public static void _form(Map<?, ?> args, Closure body, PrintWriter out, ExecutableTemplate template, int fromLine) {
  String anchor = (String) args.get("anchor");
  if (anchor == null) {
   anchor = "";
  out.print("<form action=\"" + actionDef.url + (anchor==null?"":"#"+anchor) + ...

    This "anchor" option for "form" tag is usefull when have multiple forms in a page. Don't you think ?

    I think you can surround the form with a div or scroll by id.
