<trackbot> Date: 13 March 2013

Reminder - Call times this week and next

Steven: next week the call is one hour earlier


Steven: I've got a tutorial accepted on XForms


<Steven> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-forms/2013Feb/0002.html

nvdbleek: Don't we already have it?

ebruchez: We only have it on xf:output

Steven: I'm ok with it

nvdbleek: Most implementations already support it I think

Steven: Would we include an xhtml media type to

nvdbleek: Don't we just need to add the media type attribute
... If you have another host-language it might not make sense to require html as a media type attribute
... e.g. ODT might want to use ODT but not html

Steven: We can do this by the wording should or may it shouldn't be a must

alain: I think it should be specified at the data level, not on the control
... in my implementation you have to define a type in a schema

Steven: Would you like to send your proposal to us, before we make a decision?

ebruchez: Not all control types are specified by data types
... we could have both (in the model and on the control)

<alain> <schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" targetNamespace="http://www.agencexml.com/xsltforms/rte">

<alain> <simpleType name="standardHTML">

<alain> <restriction base="xsd:string" xsltforms:rte="TinyMCE"/>

<alain> <annotation>

<alain> <appinfo>

<alain> {

<alain> theme : "advanced",

<alain> skin : "o2k7",

<alain> plugins : "lists",

<alain> theme_advanced_buttons1 : ",bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,",

<alain> theme_advanced_buttons2 : "",

<alain> theme_advanced_buttons3 : "",

<alain> }

<alain> </appinfo>

<alain> </annotation>

<alain> </simpleType>

Steven: what is the type

<alain> </schema>

ebruchez: It is stored as text

nvdbleek: The spec doesn't allow controls to be bound to complex content, so you have to serialise it to a string

<Steven> http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/XForms_2.0#The_textarea_Element

Steven: if it a string then a type on the model doesn't looks the correct solution. Then it is more an input mode. xg:input already has this

ebruchez: Is anybody already using this to create a rich text control

Steven: There is no value for it yet

alain: You want to specify the features you want to allow

ebruchez: An implementation needs to have a way to configure this. But I don't think we can standardise this yet?
... an html capture control is something we can standardise this
... in HTML5 they have e-mail, number,… to configure the type of keyboard on mobile
... We generate those types based on the data type of the instance
... for html we don't have a type so we can't do that yet

nvdbleek: we could create a tagging type to signal that we want to capture HTML

The function Element

<Steven> (Erik to propose syntax)

<Steven> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-forms/2013Jan/0028.html

Steven: Alain could you send in examples of how you implement it?
... Erik you have an action item on this

ebruchez: I haven't done it yet

Steven: can we give you deadline, let say next week for this?

ebruchez: yes, I will do
... We discussed this a bit last week
... and we were thinking of making the syntax lighter

<Steven> http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Xforms-action-error

nvdbleek: please read this and comment on it by next week
