I don't know about the right tracker for this, but I think the right
solution is 2) except that when widget.ignoreContext is True the default
value should be looked up and validated instead. In other words, change
z3c.form.validator.SimpleFieldValidator.validate to something like this
def validate(self, value):
context = self.context
request = self.request
view = self.view
field = self.field
widget = self.widget
if context is not None:
field = field.bind(context)
if value is interfaces.NOT_CHANGED:
if (interfaces.IContextAware.providedBy(widget) and
# get value from context
value = zope.component.getMultiAdapter(
value = interfaces.NO_VALUE
if value is interfaces.NO_VALUE
# look up default value
value = field.default
adapter = zope.component.queryMultiAdapter(
(context, request, view, field, widget),
value = adapter.get()
Unless I am missing something, the above code should compute the same
value as z3c.form.widget.Widget.update would when ignoreRequest is True.
Thus effectively converting NOT_CHANGED into the "existing" value
Hope this helps
