I'm looking at adding an attribute (wrap) to a TextareaField - I've yet to find an $field->AddAttribute(name,val) - can anyone help with this please?

As far as I see it's not there :-( All attributes seem to be hardcoded into the FormField::Fields() method, that calls the FormField::createTag() that in turn only creates attributes it receives in its param list. I've tried following the chain of methods involved in creating a field, and it won't be simple to wriggle in some general AddAttributes() thing - definitely not without changing core...

So probably it's extending the TextareaField - unless I'm totally missing something...

shame - that seems a bit basic to add something like that :(
