Description: ------------ If the name of a group contains square brackets, one cannot add a rule to that group (tested with radio groups). Reproduce code: --------------- require_once 'HTML/QuickForm.php'; $form = &new HTML_QuickForm('foo'); $r[] = &$form->createElement('radio', null, null, 'yes', 'yes'); $r[] = &$form->createElement('radio', null, null, 'no', 'no'); $form->addGroup($r, 'yesorno[mine]', 'Choose:'); $form->addGroupRule('yesorno[mine]', 'Choose one!', 'required'); $form->addElement('submit', null, 'Submit'); if ($form->validate()) echo "<h1>YEAH!</h1>\n"; $form->display();

Clarification: the bug is not with the rules but rather than with getting a submit value for a group of radios. The error can once again be traced back to getSubmitValue() with its logic for checking for a group of radios conflicting with its logic for getting a submit value of an element with bracketed name.
