( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Ah, interesting. What happens is that the page displays an empty box upon first startup. Then, when you click the 'add' button you can add items into the box. Or, once you have items listed in the box, you can select them (one at a time) and click on the 'delete' button. Sounds like the empty box must not have an empty 'select' tag, then once there are items to select then they need to add the appropriate <select> tags. Hmm. Too bad empty select is illegal! :-)

If this is incorrect, please let me know, as I'll be sending that info (probably late tomorrow) to the authors of the html to have them fix it.

And sorry for not searching to find out that empty select's are evil :-)

(I guess this STILL leaves the question of what $mech->select() should do when there is nothing to select. Seems like it should still say 'nothing to do' and return 0 - oh, well.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
