XForms Users Community Group Teleconference

23 May 2018



Alain, Erik, Steven, Philip


This Week

Steven: This week's XForms time for me was dedicated to writing my paper on The XForms 2 Testsuite for Markup UK
... so I haven't had much time to do other things

Embedded XForms


Steven: I see Tim Thomsonhas pointed us to an analysis of what we have so far.
... should we discuss this here?
... It is really handy to be able to embed an XForm within an XForm, and unhandy not to be able to communicate between the two...

Erik: It seemed to be too much when we discussed it in the past.
... you have to isolate the embedded form, so nothing breaks
... that was a thing that needed to be solved
... entirely doable in theory, also communication between the two
... somewhere there's a link
... maybe in the wiki

Steven: Can I ask you to find it?

Erik: Sure

<scribe> ACTION: Erik to find link to discussion on embedded forms

<trackbot> Created ACTION-2185 - Find link to discussion on embedded forms [on Erik Bruchez - due 2018-05-30].

Steven: Both you Erik, and Alain have subforms, any documentation?

Alain: My implementation is quite different; instances are shared, no isolation.

Steven: Can you send us a link to some examples?

Alain: OK

Erik: We don't really have subforms. Some of the mechanisms, for isolation, inspired from XBL

<Alain> http://www.agencexml.com/xsltforms/writers.xml

Erik: you can have components
... the data of the embedded form can be inserted into the embedding form. Not sure how much we should use it as inspiration.
... it comes from quite a long time ago.
... It does work.
... If you have a subform and want to do what we want to do, you want a subset of the data to be handled by the subform. Validity checking is an issue.

Steven: Let's check the texts, and have a think, and I'll raise it again in a week or two.

Test Suite 2.0


Steven: Nothing new this week.




Philip: Regrets for next week.
