Call next week


Steven: I am chairing that, so no call next week.

ACTION-2140 - Check google library for support of extension numbers in

telephone numbers


Erik: I sent a message

<ebruchez> https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xformsusers/2017Oct/0000.html

Erik: Still to do

Dynamic dependencies



Erik: I reread the section
... the thing I was suggesting was an example that demonstrates the problem.
... the key role is the tree of binds pointing to things,
... the example with capitals is one we could use to illustrate the problem.
... my example is not entirely realistic.
... setvalue is a bit contrived

Steven: I'd be happy with a better example if you can come up with one.

Erik: The problem definitely occurs. The trick is to find a realistic example.
... The text should make it very clear.

Steven: WIll it be hard to find a realistic example?

Erik: I need to think a little more.

Steven: Let's discuss again in two weeks again.

setvalue on a nodeset


Steven: As Erik points out, there is a way using @iterate
... there is a backwards compatibility issue if we just change setvalue now
... Leave as is?

Erik: Include an example!

<scribe> ACTION: Steven to include an example with setvalue iterate. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2017/10/04-forms-minutes.html#action01]

<trackbot> Created ACTION-2141 - Include an example with setvalue iterate. [on Steven Pemberton - due 2017-10-11].

Alert MIP Proposal


Steven: While thinking about adding alert to the model, it struck me that alert is part of a greater group, and why not the others, label, hint, etc.
... This has a lot of stuff to think about so maybe it's better if you go off and read it and we discuss next time.

Erik: Are multiple constraints already in XForms 2?

Steven: Yes
... I'll put it on the agneda for next time.


Steven: XML Prague call is coming soon. I plan to submit.
