I'd like to be able to call a function with an argument from within an element's attribute definitions. This would greatly simplify my controller code for my forms. Is there any way to get around this limitation?

Actually, I guess it makes more sense to move all the function calls that I want to expose to my views into an object.

Unfortunately, this would make the parser a bit more complicated (and a bit slower) because it would have to keep track of opening/closing parentheses.

As a workaround, call your functions in advance, storing the values in variables / view locals. Then, plug those in as the attribute values. I'm sure you're probably doing this already...

Closing this issue for now. Thanks.
