I am in the process of designing and implementing some extensions to
HTML / NCSA Mosaic Fill-Out forms capability, as part of a project to
develop a generic, end-user programmable Mosaic-based front-end for
SYBASE databases. For a description of either, see
Briefly the fill-out forms extensions include:
o a widget for tabular arrays of input fields
o a hash-table for associating arbitrary attributes with widgets
o HTML directives for accessing and setting attributes
o finer-grained client/server interaction than is currently supported by http,
to allow for interactive field-entry validation and such.
I'd be curious to hear opinions or advice.
