Description: ------------ From the QuickForm2 Tutorial, changed the $id of the form form 'tutorial' to 'test form'. The constructor did not recognize that the form was submitted. Removed the space and the form works as expected. Test script: --------------- $form = new HTML_QuickForm2('test form'); $form->addDataSource(new HTML_QuickForm2_DataSource_Array(array( 'name' => 'Joe User' ))); $fieldset = $form->addElement('fieldset')->setLabel('QuickForm2 tutorial example'); $name = $fieldset->addElement('text', 'name', array('size' => 50, 'maxlength' => 255)) ->setLabel('Enter your name:'); $submit = $fieldset->addElement('submit', null, array('value' => 'Send!')); if ($form->validate()) { echo '<h1>Hello, ' . htmlspecialchars($name->getValue()) . '!</h1>'; exit; } echo $form; Expected result: ---------------- After changing the name to 'World', I expect to see, "Hello, World!". Actual result: -------------- The form is displayed as if it was loaded for the first time, even with all the defaults from the code.

Spaces are not allowed in elements' id attributes. You can complain to authors of HTML specification if you don't like this fact.

Alexey, Thank you and understood. With that said, wouldn't it be prudent for the constructor to throw an exception when an invalid argument is passed to it (such as the illegal space)?

It may indeed make sense to throw an exception for incorrect id in setId() method. It may also make sense to route setting the form's id through that method instead of doing it in the constuctor.

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
