[Seaside] WAAnchorTag>>submitFormNamed:

Hallo Avi,

Thank you for your reply; I am using Seaside2.6a2-avi.1.

I tried using your suggested code below like this. (The #ignoreURL
selector was not known; maybe it is part of a newer/older version)

html anchor
   callback: [ self saveCurrentComponents ];
   submitFormNamed: 'cmpFrm';
   text: 'Save Displayed Components'

which generated strange and incorrect source like this:

<submitFormNamed>cmpFrm</submitFormNamed>Save Displayed Components

Maybe this was because of the #ignoreURL, but I really doubt it. Is
there something else that I am doing wrong?

Thank you,

Hi Mart-Mari,

Which version of Seaside are you using?  This has been changing a bit  
on the a2 branch.  And it will change more, because it's currently a  
little bit too hard to use.

Anyway, as of the most recent version you do this:

html anchor
     callback: ["do something else"];
     submitFormNamed: 'someForm';
     text: 'Not a submit button'
