I keep hearing about the wonders of formlib, so I've been trying to
migrate one of my zcml browser:editform generated forms to formlib.
Once I figured out how to "select(...)" fields to avoid problems with
the "__parent__" field on my interface, this worked acceptably.
After edit changes are applied, I want to redirect the user to another
page (ultimately, to the page from which they came). Before I did
this with a "changed" method on my edit form class, but this did not
work when I switched to formlib.
Below you can see my approach. From within my "changed" method, I
manually call "handle_edit_action" which gives a TypeError because the
'Action' object is not callable. Unfortunately, without
"handle_edit_action", the object never gets changed upon "apply".
** What is the best way to use a formlib EditForm to redirect a user
after applying changes without fully cloning a "handle_edit_action"
from zope.formlib import form
from zope.formlib.form import action, haveInputWidgets
form_fields = form.Fields(interfaces.IPitcher).select('Last',
def changed(self, action, data):
#TypeError: 'Action' object is not callable
