form and formName parameters

I'm trying out RenderFormPlugin as it seems flexible and usable vs standard dataform. When creating topics from the examples in the topic page everything is ok but when I try out RENDERFORM with topic names differing it looks like the rfp_s_formName does something not logical to me. The issue occurs when rendering a record and clicking on [EDIT FORM]. Even if DEFAULT parameter is the correct form name it does something wrong when going to edit mode. The rfp_topic parameter is correct but rfp_s_formName is something like "renderFormWebNr" where Nr is 10 or some varying number. The topic with RENDERFORM is named "TestRenderKontakt" and the form name is "KontaktForm".

I can't quite figure out the code but I see that putting both DEFAULT parameter and formName to the same form then it works, but there is some garbage text right above the rendered form:
KontaktFormCheckFormData?();" name="KontaktForm">

Dont know if I'm not doing things right or it could be a bug or missing doumentation.

After trying to read code it looks like the text above the form is from sub render { in RenderFormPlugin/ line 211 and 212, it is printed readable on the screen.

After after: think I found the error, it is line 210 in said file. I guess because of strikeone the form html syntax is a bit more complex and it gives this behaviour because there's some text spanned in onsubmit that uses double quotes. I changed so single quotes and it looks fine. I'll open a bug report on this, Foswiki:Tasks/Item8318.

Setting this to answered. For me I had to change double to single quotes and also use the formName parameter, like this: RENDERFORM{ "MyForm" formName="MyForm" }
