[FNR] TextField setName() not working
When I call TextField setName() method it won't set name property in HTML.
It will produce following output in HMTL.
FormPanel form = new FormPanel();
VerticalLayoutContainer p = new VerticalLayoutContainer();
TextField firstName = new TextField();
p.add(new FieldLabel(firstName, "Name"), new VerticalLayoutData(-18, -1));
<input class="GJUVS-2BBU GJUVS-2BMT" type="text" value="" style="width: 207px;">
Calling setName() works for FileUploadField and also for GWT Hidden fields.
Thanks for the bug report, we'll look into it and get back to you.
