Hi Leigh,

This looks like an excellent adjustment to a form that more reasonably 
tests the event without having to resort to the server-side work.  It also 
looks like Ubiquity should be able to pass this test, which would then 
remove this issue from the 1.1 obstacles list.

We're going to have someone from the ubiquity team look at your form in 
the next few days and will report back to the WG soon.  Once the Ubiquity 
XForms processor passes this revised test, we'll update our implementation 
report to reflect that and, since FF3 plugin still passes, we can then 
just adopt your revised form and close this issue.

Thanks,

Test 4.2.4.a: possible simpler idea



How about this?  It's simpler than what we discussed with submission and 
server-side testing.

<xforms:load ev:event="xforms-model-destruct"
             resource="http://www.w3.org"
             show="new"/>

If that works, I also recommend doing this, to prevent the xf:load from 
happening when the page is closed without being tested.
It's not strictly necessary but it makes the test easier to work with.

<xforms:load ev:event="xforms-model-destruct"
             if="boolean-from-string(tested)"
             resource="http://www.w3.org"
             show="new"/>

Attached is the test that does this (and sets the tested flag, etc.)

Firefox 3 passes this test.

Leigh.
