3.8 Filling in HTML forms

These emacs-w3m commands let you move between forms and fill in fields, using simple key bindings and optionally prompting you for values in Emacs windows or in the minibuffer.

The main key binding to remember is <RET>. It has different meanings, depending on the thing under point: for textareas, you will be prompted for a value in the minibuffer. For select tags, you will be given a list of choices in an electric Emacs window (you can move using the arrow keys, and pick one with the <RET> key). For radio and checkbox buttons, the <RET> key selects one of the elements.

When in the minibuffer or in the electric window, you can cancel with the C-c C-q sequence. To submit the form, use C-c C-c.


Jump to the next form (w3m-next-form).


Jump to the previous form (w3m-previous-form).

C-c C-c

Submit form at point (w3m-submit-form).


Edit the value of the form item under point.

<RET> (w3m-form-*-keymap)

Accept the value.

C-c C-q (w3m-form-*-keymap)

Quit editing the form item, leaving changes.

Unless w3m-form-use-textarea-backup is set to nil, emacs-w3m stores the text you input in textareas in backup files for later reuse. When you start editing a form and there is backup text available, you will be asked whether you want to use it or not. Files to save text are stored in the directory specified by the w3m-form-textarea-directory variable.
