1 File per form filled.
If you are not trying to upload a file, then we need some more
as to what you are trying to accomplish.
So, each time a visitor fills a form, I firts need to create the File,
then I will see later how to write into the File.
But I almost found: I have to use manage_addfile.
But I dont know, the "title" argument is not working properly:
If I hardcode the "title" when calling manage_addfile, there is no
If I try to set it throuhg the form, the string goes into the body of
the file instead of the "title" when the File is created...
If you have a simple html form like:
<form action="ptst" method="post">
Enter File Name: <input type="text" name="fName" value="" size="20"><br>
Enter File Title: <input type="text" name="fTitle" value=""
Enter File Type: <input type="text" name="fType" value=""
<input type="submit" value="Create File">
And a simple python script ('ptst') with parameters "fName", "fType" and
"fTitle" (note: script parameters match form field names) and contains
context.manage_addFile(id=fName, file=None, content_type=fType,
It should give you the basis for what you are trying to accomplish (if I
understand the requirement correctly!)
