That's now done. So forms are now using the textarea widget for:
+ INPUT element type TEXT
+ INPUT element type PASSWORD
+ TEXTAREA element
The forms elements are still forced to BOX_INLINE_BLOCK, since changing
what would require extensive and fiddly changes to layout. So that can
wait for the layout engine rewrite. :)
There are some remaining issues, main ones being:
- There is currently no way to provide a clip rectangle for the native
caret rendering, so if you give a textarea widget focus and scroll it,
the caret will be rendered outside the textarea.
- Selecting text in a textarea widget doesn't cause any existing
selections elsewhere in the window to be cleared.
