Subject Bug report: FormFill functionality
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2001 07:31:17 GMT
Summary: HTML::FillInForm chokes if the value has double quotes in it.

Minimal script to cause problem:

$Response->{FormFill} = 1;
my $test = '"This string is quoted."';
<input type="text" size=40 value="<%=$Server->HTMLEncode($test)%>">

This is in Apache::ASP 2.09 (I can't use 2.11 since I haven't had a free
afternoon to upgrade from perl 5.00503 to perl 5.6.1 then fix everything
that broke). HTML::FillInForm version is 0.13.

The output of the script is this:

<input type="text" size="40" value=""This string is quoted."">

If I turn off FormFill, its output is correct:

<input type="text" size=40 value="&quot;This string is quoted.&quot;">
