Hiding the text input field of the inputbox
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: patrik

It would be useful to be able to hide the text input field of the inputbox so
just the button is shown.

Sometimes like on MediaWiki:Nogomatch you already have a default value that is
not needed to change so showing the text field is not nessary.

On the English Wiktionary we have solved this by using a Javascript hack.
However it doesn't look very nice and it would be better to add a new option to
the inputbox extension.

So I suggest that a new parameter "hidden" is added so that "hidden=yes" hides
the text input field.

Patch to implement the new "hidden" parameter

I have implemented the new "hidden" parameter and it seems to work for me.

Committed in r15558. With some modifications to fit code

It's a pretty hideous extension, though, should be rewritten.
