Hi,

every time i use addExtraClass on my forms i get a space before the classname. Is there a way to avoid this?

$anredeField = new DropdownField('Anrede', 'Anrede', $listsForAnrede);
$anredeField->ExtraClass('select');

<select name="Anrede" id="Form_SubscribeForm_Anrede" class=" select"><option value="Herr">Herr</option><option value="Frau">Frau</option></select>

Greetings, Carsten.

The space is added in case there are already classes defined, have you tried calling extraClass(), according to the API (http://api.silverstripe.org/2.4/forms/core/Form.html#methodextraClass) it compiles all css classes, although I'm not 100% sure it means it will get rid of the leading space.

I guess it may always put a ' ' before everything just to be safe. It shouldn't cause any issues as [space] won't be a valid classname. If you want to dig in and get it resolved have a look around where it prints the select tag, you probably need to use trim() around value put into the class attribute.
