monkfan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Fellow Monks,
As can be seen in this url, how come my snippet below:
sub generate_form { print start_multipart_form(), strong('GO Term or GO ID:' ), textfield( -name => 'go_ti' -overrride => 1 -default => 'microtubule' # no effect ), br, br strong('Sequence Type: '), popup_menu( -name => 'seq_type', -values => [ 'Upstream', 'Downstream', 'ORF (unspliced)', ] ), strong('Start:'), textfield( -name => 'win_start' -overrride => 1 -size => 10, # no effect -maxlength => 10, -default => '-800' ), strong('End:'), textfield( -name => 'win_end' -overrride => 1 -size => 10, # no effect -maxlength => 10, -default => '-1'), br, br strong('Organism Types: '), popup_menu( -name => 'organism', -values => [ 'A.gambiae', 'A.nidulans', 'A.thaliana', 'B.subtilis', 'C.elegans', 'C.familiaris', 'D.melanogaster', 'D.rerio', 'E.coli', 'F.rubripes', 'G.gallus', 'H.sapiens', 'M.musculus', 'R.norvegicus', 'S.cerevisiae', ] ),br, br submit( -name=>'action', -value => 'Submit' ), end_form; } # the complete code is here:
  • doesn't enable default value for my first textfield ('go_ti')?
  • And also the maxsize and length in textfield 'win_end' and 'win_start' doesn't seem to take effect?
