How can i give a form fieldset an id?

or would have to do a custom form?

eg: php code

$fields = new FieldSet(


only gives me
front end output

but i want <fieldset id="delegates">

and it needs to be on a fieldset not a div or other TAG

any ideas?

The fieldset class doesn't wrap the fields in a 'fieldset' (terrible naming). It's actually part of the template ( so you'd either need to do a custom template or put the ID on a div within the fieldset.

I was using a piece of javascript found at
to duplicate fields and was stuck and thinking the js would only work on the <filedset> id, but luckily it can work on a div as well.
