Title: #782: [WIP] Improving GUI text in "Add DNS Zones" popup
Hello @felipevolpone ,
Thank you for your patch.
For adding arbitrary text into a dialog or details page is probably the most
suitable IPA.html_widget (but it has a big disadvantage - described below in
section A). You can put it into the section you created. It might look like
html: "Select the required zone type."
widget_cls: "col-sm-12 controls",
Layout attribute of the section might not be needed, but I would say that here
it good to add it. It hides label of field and set width of the field to 100%
of the dialog.
(Simpler solutions below - B and C)
A) The html attribute contains text which will be displayed. Text there should
be taken from translatable strings. It can be done by using
`text.get('i18n:path.to.the.string')` and writing the string into
ipaserver/internal.py. The main challenge here might be to find a place where
the string has to be loaded. It has to be done before building the whole dialog
and its sections. You will probably need to override `dialog_build_properites`
attribute of entity specification and there change `$post_ops` operation which
where is the function which builds adder dialog for entity (add there loading
of translate string).
B) (not tested) Another solution would be to set text field instead of html one
and turn off the field in the same way as above and then set it non-writable
and read_only. Then hide the label and there the `text.get()` should work
directly in field definition. (should not be needed to change behavior of
building entity's adder dialog).
C) Another solution will be to create new widget, which will work in the same
way as `IPA.html_widget` but it will support translatable strings.
If you have any question feel free to ask. :)
