Tutorial: Wrong usage of #field

Reported by Erwan Loisant | October 5th, 2010 @ 11:59 AM | in 1.2.4 (closed)

Based on http://groups.google.com/group/play-framework/browse_thread/thread/...# I send this bug-report:
In guide9 of the tutorial is an bug in the form.html.
The field in the form.html will not be marked in case of an error.
The reason seems to be that it must be ${errors.forKey('post.title')} instead of ${field.errorClass} because
the field is defined at title. But then the whole concept of the field-tag is broken.
So I wonder if this could be a better solution:

    #{field 'post.content'}
    <label>Write here:</label>
    <textarea name="content"

Seems to work too, you only have to set name="content", otherwise the
action can't be called correctly.
Is this the optimum or is there a more elegant way?

<h2>Play framework</h2>

Play makes it easier to build Web applications with Java. It is a clean alternative to bloated Enterprise Java stacks. It focuses on developer productivity and targets RESTful architectures. Learn more on the <a href="http://www.playframework.org">http://www.playframework.org</a> website.<br><br>

<h2>Source code is hosted on github</h2>Check out our repository at <a href="http://github.com/playframework/play">http://github.com/playframework/play</a><br><br>

<h2>Contributing, creating a patch</h2> Please read the <a href="http://play.lighthouseapp.com/projects/57987/contributor-guide">contributor guide</a><br><br>

<h2>Reporting Security Vulnerabilities</h2> Since all bug reports are public, please report any security vulnerability directly to <em>guillaume dot bort at gmail dot com</em>.<br><br>

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
