Subject [jira] Created: (TAPESTRY-742) LinkSubmit renders overly verbose JavaScript

LinkSubmit renders overly verbose JavaScript

         Key: TAPESTRY-742
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-742
     Project: Tapestry
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Framework  
    Versions: 4.0    
    Reporter: Chris Conrad

The LinkSubmit component currently renders a JavaScript function for every LinkSubmit on the
page.  This is problematic for me because I have a page which could have over 100 LinkSubmits
on it (3 LinkSubmits per item with up to 50 items per page).  The current JavaScript function
which is rendered looks like:

function onclick_LinkSubmit_0()
  var form = Tapestry.find('Form');
  if (form.events.onsubmit_handler())
    Tapestry.find('LinkSubmit_0').value = "T";
    form.onsubmit = null;

The LinkSubmit component could, however, add a static JavaScript file which contains a single
function which looks like:

function onclick_LinkSubmit(form, link)
  var form = Tapestry.find(form);
  if (form.events.onsubmit_handler())
    Tapestry.find(link).value = "T";
    form.onsubmit = null;

The values of 'form' and 'link' can be determined at script processing time and the function
can be executed by creating a URL which look like:

<a href="javascript:onclick_LinkSubmit('Form', 'LinkSubmit_0');">Do Something</a>

This will substantially reduce the amount of JavaScript sent to the browser on a page which
includes many LinkSubmits.
