(Quick Reference)

textField

Purpose

Creates a input of type 'text' (a text field). An implicit "id" attribute is given the same value as the name unless you explicitly specify one.

Examples

<g:textField name="myField" value="${myValue}" />

Description

Attributes

  • name (required) - The name of the text field

  • value (optional) - The initial text to display in the text field. By default the text field will be empty.

Configuration

Some attributes can be defined as Boolean values, but the html specification mandates the attribute must have the same value as its name. For example, disabled, readonly and checked. It may be desirable to have additional attributes (like required) behave the same way. This can be controlled with the following config value:

grails:
    tags:
        booleanToAttributes:
            - disabled
            - checked
            - readonly
            - required

Defaults are disabled, checked, readonly
