plone.formwidget.autocomplete

AJAX selection widget for Plone

Project Description

Introduction

plone.formwidget.autocomplete is a z3c.form widget for use with Plone. It uses the jQuery Autocomplete widget, and has graceful fallback for non- Javascript browsers.

There is a single-select version (AutocompleteSelectionFieldWidget) for Choice fields, and a multi-select one (AutocompleteMultiSelectionFieldWidget) for collection fields (e.g. List, Tuple) with a value_type of Choice.

When using this widget, the vocabulary/source has to provide the IQuerySource interface from z3c.formwidget.query and have a search() method.

Changelog

1.1 (2010-08-25)

  • Force the inserted HTML radio buttons to be interpreted as HTML instead of text. [dukebody]
  • Fall back to the site to perform content-related operations if the context is not wrapped into an aquisition chain. [dukebody]
  • Compute the view name as the request URL left-stripped the content absolute URL. [dukebody]
  • Use the same display template for single- and multi-selection: The single selection display template was non functional before. The value of a single selection field is wrapped in a list anyways so the multiselection template renders the single selection field just fine. -> https://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/10495
  • Update widget in the autocomplete-search browser view: The self.context.update() call rebinds to source which previously was only bound during traversal. This avoids problems with sources that only work after security is applied. [gaudenzius]

1.0 - 2010-04-19

  • Issue 107: plone.formwidget.autocomplete: problems in IE8 when changing value Added a JavaScript work around, which dechecks all existing radio fields before adding a new one which is checked. [jbaumann]
  • Made the widget work properly in Zope 2.12. [optilude]

1.0b3 - 2009-06-29

  • Fix security validator to work properly on add views and other views using namespace traversal (++add++...) [optilude]

1.0b2 - 2009-04-08

  • Fix security validator to work with urls not including the @@ view name. [optilude]
