I am unsure exactly what you are trying to do.

The code I posted for Hans was for HttpForm, not WebForm. Webform operates on the server side. HttpForm is a client (that simply 
makes it easier to submit a HTML form). HttpForm would not modify anything on the server; the web application would have to do that.

I haven't done any work with gb.web.gui, but from the wiki it appears that Webform does not actually represent a HTML form; but 
merely any page or dialog of a web application. And now that I'm looking, I don't see any readily apparent way to create a HTML 
form with gb.web.gui.
