Hello, I am new to plone/zope. I am trying to use z3c forms with plone to fetch some data from RDBMS but I am having an issue with variables passed to edit forms using GET and POST variables.
>From what I read, the edit form needs to override the getContent function: def getContent(self): #get the id from the request object personid = int(*self.request['entityid']*) #use the id to look up the person person = sql.getPerson(personid) #create a return a dictionary content = dict( [ (name, getattr(person,name)) for name in self.fields.keys()]) return content This works and I can display values just fine, but when I do something similar in the action handler @button.buttonAndHandler(u'Apply',name='applyView') def handleApplyView(self,action): self.handleApply(self,action) if not self.widgets.errors: url = absoluteURL(self.context,self.request) url += '/person-view?id=' + *self.request['entityid'] * self.request.response.redirect(url) I get an error that there is no entityid key in self.request. Inspecting the request object seems to confirm that. I guess my other options are to: - Get the value from form directly with *self.request.form.widgets.entityid*(seems like an ugly thing to do) - Get the value from *data* dictionary. What would be the best pattern for handling this type of processing? I have used z3c.formdemo and their example (sqlmessage) but for some reason self.request['id'] seems to work for them. Thanks for your time Daniel Fimiarz
