Form view helper. Generates a <form> Tag.

Basic usage

Use <f:form> to output an HTML <form> tag which is targeted at the specified action, in the current controller and package. It will submit the form data via a POST request. If you want to change this, use method=”get” as an argument. Example:

<f:form action="...">...</f:form>

A complex form with a specified encoding type

Form with enctype set:

<f:form action=".." controller="..." package="..." enctype="multipart/form-data">...</f:form>

A Form which should render a domain object

Binding a domain object to a form:

<f:form action="..." name="customer" object="{customer}">
   <f:form.hidden property="id" />
   <f:form.textbox property="name" />

This automatically inserts the value of {} inside the textbox and adjusts the name of the textbox accordingly.
