Alain, Nick

Meeting minutes

Let's get that right...

Announcements etc

Steven: Congratulations Erik, on Orbeon 4.5
… anything of interest for us?

Erik: Apart from what I mentioned in the email, we do have <hint> on individual items (such as check boxes)
… which the spec doesn't support (yet)
… which I raised in another mail
… It is easy to do with radio buttons, but harder with drop downs.
… other improvements are in the support tools and so on.

Inconsistent description of attributes on <label> etc.


Erik: I just replied; UI Common is the right one.\

Steven: I'll fix.

ACTION: Steven to fix inconsistent text on attributes for <label> etc.

<trackbot> Created ACTION-1971 - Fix inconsistent text on attributes for <label> etc. [on Steven Pemberton - due 2014-04-16].

@label, @help, @hint, @alert


Steven: In the absence of objections, I plan to implement.

Erik: <select1 ref="..." label="Gender">

<item label="male">m</item>

<item label="female">f</item>


Steven: Looks like a big change compared with the others.

Alain: Not difficult to implement.

Erik: It is a bit of a departure. But it's just a syntax issue. But it is more light weight.

<ebruchez> <item label="male" value="'m'"/>

Erik: <item label="male" value="'m'"/>
… it's not difficult to specify. But do we like it?

Steven: The only thing is that it allows this: <item><label>male</label>m</item>

Erik: That wouldn't be allowed.

Steven: Then I don't think we should do it.

<ebruchez> <item>foo<label>…</label>bar</item.

Steven: Then I propose we don't do the 'value-less' <item>

ACTION-1970 - Propose list of page access functions [on Erik

Bruchez - due 2014-04-09].



Erik: I still have to do that

XML => XPath Data Model


Steven: Earlier we say "Otherwise the body is parsed to give an XPath Data Model according to Creating instance data from external resources. "

Erik: Your new text is probably fine.

ACTION: Steven to make submission XML => XPath Data model change

<trackbot> Created ACTION-1972 - Make submission xml => xpath data model change [on Steven Pemberton - due 2014-04-16].


Steven: I made the changes as agreed on last week, the diff is available here: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-forms/2014Apr/0013.html
… please check to see you are OK with it.\
