Hey. This has a couple of bugs, IMO. It might also be a misfeature,
but I'm less sure about that.
First, "return self.context.get(content)" assumes that this widget
will be used on an edit form (not true for us).
Second, "if self.context.interface.providedBy(content):" assumes that
the schema field is part of an interface (not true for us).
Hum. From that I make that there are not enough tests. :/
I figure that the .interface attribute doesn't seem to be part of any
interface anyway. So in fact this is not a nice thing to do.
Neither of these are valid assumptions generally for a form field, IMO.
I'm also not sure about the semantics. Shouldn't this be handled more
at the form level? I can see why you want to do this here, but it
seems pretty gray, and I'm not sure how to solve the bugs in a sane
and reliable way.
No, thinking about it it's not the right way I did it. Basically I
wasn't aware about the different conexts. In general I know that, but
sometimes you're just blind :)
I agree that this is a tricky problem, and it would be nice to solve
it, but your solution is not correct for a generic form widget. The
only suggestion I have ATM is to revert this, unfortunately, but I
welcome other approaches that solve the issues I raised.
Solving it on form level is of course possible but not really the thing
you want to think about. I suspect there should be some 'i have not
changed' marker value.
There is some strange thing in zope.formlib.form.applyChanges
preventing updates of the value already:
def applyChanges(context, form_fields, data, adapters=None):
for form_field in form_fields:
name = form_field.__name__
newvalue = data.get(name, form_field) # using form_field as marker
if (newvalue is not form_field) and (field.get(adapter) != newvalue):
changed = True
newvalue is not formfield? To me this does not make much sense. Why
would I return self.context to indicate the value has not changed?
Questions over questions :)
