There is a need for more submit types...
although <input type="submit"> and <input type="reset"> are trivial even without a component,
there is a problem when a type="cancel" is needed.
The issue here is that in case of cancel client validation must be skipped, and that is not possible with current
I don't know how submit type=cancel works for T4 so I've implemented it how it seemed right for me.
extract from javadoc for the "type" parameter
- Determines the button behavior, <b>"submit"</b> - a normal form button, <b>"reset"</b> - reset form (locally),
- "cancel" - works like an actionlink, generates a "cancel" event instead of "selected" and the form is not submitted
- submission (this is usually desirable).
so I've added type=submitcancel which still submits the form but avoids client validation.
both generate "cancel" event which is different from the "selected" event
on top of all that the type=forced could be easily added to call "selected" event while skipping client side validation
