Modify HTML-form adding "value=..." fields to <input> tags according
to $_REQUEST, "selected" attribute to <select> etc. A lot of other
functions (e.g., select, textarea, img also supported).
The simplest example:
Clicking the submit button, you see that values of text fields
remain unchanged - the same as you entered before submitting the form!
The same method also works with SELECTs, CHECKBOXes etc. You do not need
to manual write "value=..." or "if (...) echo "selected" in your scripts,
it is done automatically based on $_GET and $_POST arrays.
Interesting feature (but OPTIONAL - please say if you thing it is NOT NEEDED, I will remove) - handling of "flip-fields". For example,
<select name="sel" multiple flip>
<option value="first" selected>First</option>
<option value="third" selected>Third</option>
(watch "flip" attribute!) gives the result:
$_REQUEST['sel'] === array('first'=>1, 'third'=>1)
It is much more logical to work with associative array instead
of lists for multiple SELECTs. See example:
/> (I say again: this is NOT required and NOT major (but - useful) option of the module, vote against it if you think it should be removed).
