Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1634) Editor Note: Section17.267 form:data-field

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1634?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=11734#action_11734 ] 

Michael Brauer commented on OFFICE-1634:

Not only the results are stored where specified by the attribute, but also taken from there. 

What about the following:

1. we extend the definition of data-awareness in the preamble to chapter
   "12 Forms" as follows:

   * Forms can be data-aware. A form is data-aware if the values subject
     to its controls are populated from and updated to a database.

     Via the form:datasource, form:command, form:command-type
     attributes, a data-aware form defines a result set (a homogeneous set of rows
     of data taken from the database). At each point in time, one row of
     this set is current. The controls belonging to the form always
     operate on its current row.

2. We change the description for form:data-field to:

   The form:data-field specifies the name of a column in the result set
   defined by the containing (data-aware) form. The control will exchange its content
   with this column as follows:
   * When the current row of the form changes, the control is
     initialized with the value from the column.
   * When the user changes the content of the control, then this changed
     value is written back into the column.
     Note: Applications may delay this write-back, for instance
     until the control loses the focus, instead of updating the column
     value with every minor change in the control.
