usually means error.

Code from browser how it was done:

<td class="section-cell-label" title="First name"><label
name="givenname" class="field-label">First name:</label><span
class="required" style="
float: right;
font-weight: bold;
color: #319016;
font-size: 20px;
" title="required">*</span></td>

(style should be moved to css file)

<div style="line-height: 25px;"><span class="required" style="
font-weight: bold;
color: #319016;
font-size: 20px;
vertical-align: middle;
">*</span> required</div>

It may vary on the section type.

Fixed. I couldn't use the exact style above because it looks a bit weird
in the details page since the labels are right aligned. I use red for
now because it can also mean 'important', but we can adjust this again

2) When rendering label, we should also obtain field input's id (if
possible) for 'for' attribute of <label>. This can be done separately.

I'd rather avoid using ID in a dynamic app like this. Adding ID into the
fields is possible, but we'd have to do it very carefully to avoid

3) Should we create some common pure html widgets with certain

We can, but as discussed elsewhere, we have to fix the current
assumption first: each widget correspond to an attribute, it currently
has properties and methods (e.g. metadata, load(), save()) that are only
valid on attributes.

IE asterisk shouldn't be directly concatenated with label
text. It is used on more than one place which may cause maintenance

IPA.form(or some other name).required_indicator = function() {
return '*'

in this case this seems unnecessary. But if the required indicator was
like in 1) it will be useful.


All 3 points are nice to have. If you think is not necessary then ACK.

This patch is also fixing https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/1973 .

Noted in the new patch.


Also proposing minor visual enhancement (see attached patch).
