The anchor dialog should validate that the provided anchor name is valid

The patch doesn't allow a single letter name, but I think that it should be valid. Also, as we aren't interested in the details it should be enough to use test instead of match:

if ( !(/^[A-Za-z][-A-Za-z0-9_:.]*$/.this.getValue())  )

The provided patch will show the "Please type the anchor name" message in this case, and the user will get confused.

Let's simply trim the spaces from the name, as users may not notice that they are there, being again confused.

If validation is to be done, other than trimming, a dedicated error message should be displayed. This is not a requirement for this ticket though.

As per comment:4, I believe trimming the spaces would be enough here. See proposed solution in the attached patch.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by tmonahan

The provided fix does not seem like a good solution for this. With this fix, if the user includes spaces at the end of their anchor name, they get prompted with the message 'Please type the anchor name'. This is confusing for the user as they do not know what is wrong with the name they have already entered.

A better approach would be to trim the anchor name before it is committed as proposed in 5447_2.patch.
