15:20:24 [nick]
15:20:52 [John_Boyer]
I think that's not quite right, Nick
15:20:58 [John_Boyer]
because <repeat bind="???">
15:21:28 [nick]
why does <xf:repeat bind="order"> not work?
15:21:47 [John_Boyer]
because repeat needs to bind to the set of rows, not the order

15:29:04 [John_Boyer]
<repeat name="order" thingIamRepeating="row"
15:30:41 [John_Boyer]
What you're saying is that there would be no containing element

but does how to translate an html form to xforms needs to be specified by the us, i.e. I don't think it should be part of the XForms spec
15:38:54 [nick]
I do believe we need a simpler format
15:39:52 [nick]
ack me
15:44:07 [nick]
There are already browsers that support repeat in html forms, and users already use it, so we should if we want to support html forms also support that pattern, (I don't belief we should do that)
15:44:16 [klotz]
15:44:39 [ebruchez]
there is a very noisy line
15:44:55 [Steven]
zakim, who is noisy?
15:45:06 [Zakim]
Steven, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: markbirbeck (17%), John_Boyer (75%)
15:45:38 [nick]
the only 'problem' with Erik's variables is that you can't refer to all the lineTotal nodes only the one in the current row
15:46:19 [nick]
I mean inside the repeat
15:46:52 [nick]
if you want to calculate for example the percentage of a value compared to all the rows
15:47:32 [nick]
I understand why it solves the PO form
15:49:31 [markbirbeck]
zakim, mute me
15:49:31 [Zakim]
markbirbeck should now be muted
15:50:22 [John_Boyer]
Nick asks "what if you have a column in a repeat that wants to show a percentage contribution over the whole table"
15:51:37 [John_Boyer]
15:51:42 [John_Boyer]
15:52:35 [John_Boyer]
Can't do, OK.
15:52:57 [John_Boyer]
Variables values can be decided relative to context node of whole expression, not context within expression
15:53:48 [markbirbeck]
zakim, unmute me
