Contain form within a bootstrap popover?

Contain form within a bootstrap popover?

JSfiddle
I’m guessing that I would store the form contents within a javascript function…
How do I contain a form within a bootstrap popover?

Solutions/Answers:

Solution 1:

Either replace double quotes around type="text" with single quotes, Like

"<form><input type='text'/></form>"

OR

replace double quotes wrapping data-content with singe quotes, Like

data-content='<form><input type="text"/></form>'

Solution 2:

I would put my form into the markup and not into some data tag.
This is how it could work:

JS Code:

$('#popover').popover({ 
    html : true,
    title: function() {
      return $("#popover-head").html();
    },
    content: function() {
      return $("#popover-content").html();
    }
});

HTML Markup:

<a href="#" id="popover">the popover link</a>
<div id="popover-head" class="hide">
  some title
</div>
<div id="popover-content" class="hide">
  <!-- MyForm -->
</div>

Alternative Approaches:

X-Editable

You might want to take a look at X-Editable.
A library that allows you to create editable elements on your page based on popovers.

Webcomponents

Mike Costello has released Bootstrap Web Components.
This nifty library has a Popovers Component that lets you embed the form as markup:

<button id="popover-target" data-original-title="MyTitle" title="">Popover</button>

<bs-popover title="Popover with Title" for="popover-target">
  <!-- MyForm -->
</bs-popover>

Demo

Solution 3:

<a data-title="A Title" data-placement="top" data-html="true" data-content="<form><input type='text'/></form>" data-trigger="hover" rel="popover" class="btn btn-primary" id="test">Top popover</a>

just state data-html=”true”

Solution 6:

You can load the form from a hidden div element with the Bootstrap-provided hidden class.

<button class="btn btn-default" id="form-popover">Form popover</button>

<div class="hidden">
  <form id="form">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" />
  </form>
</div>

JavaScript:

$('#form-popover').popover({
    content: $('#form').parent().html(),
    html: true,
});
