Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-3749) Extend form tag to support multiple column span
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2012 16:48:38 GMT


Daniele Armellini commented on WW-3749:

Thank you for your comments,
My point in opening this request is that I think that a form layout with only two columns
(with label-input in every row) is totally useless in any non trivial project.

Keeping this layout as the only one available in Struts 2 is like forcing users to implements
their own layout since the standard xhtml can't display decently more than three or four fields.

I think that a basic multi-column layout should be available out-of-the-box.
