Add forms for user enterable search criteria to collections.

Project description

This package extends the Products.ATContentTypes.criteria types to create search forms. Specifically, any criterion fields which are selected in each criterion’s “Form Fields” will be rendered on the search form. The values set on the criteria edit form become the default values on the search form. Search terms submitted through the search form supplement any criteria not on the search form. IOW, criteria not appearing on the form become the base query built into the search form.

A new “Search Form” display layout is provided that renders the search form and the collection body text but no results. The search form on this layout will display results using the layout specified in the “Form Results Layout” field of the collection’s edit form.

The search form can also be rendered in a search form portlet based on plone.portlet.collection. The portlet will not render on the search form view or the criteria edit form but otherwise will render the search form for the designated collection according to the portlet settings.

Thus the collection can use either the search form or a results listing as the display layout. Users can initiate searches using either the form or the portlet. The portlet also reflects any submitted search terms and thus provides a convenient way for users to refine their searches.

Multiple sort criteria can also be added that will render user selectable sort links on the batch macro. See collective/formcriteria/criteria/sort.txt for more details.

A CSV export action is also provided which provides a link to users allowing them to download the collections results, subject to the user’s query in the CSV format. This allows collections to be used, for example, in conjunction with spreadsheet software for ad-hoc reporting or limited export to other systems.

A folder contents table display layout is also included. This layout is not yet fully functional but provides the basis for some very rich site admin functionality.

WARNING: Uninstall

Uninstalling this product after having added any collections or adding criteria to any collections, even ones added before install, is untested and may leave your collections broken.

Form Criteria

Start with a collection and some content for search results.

>>> from Products.PloneTestCase import ptc
>>> self.login()
>>> foo_topic = self.folder['foo-topic-title']
>>> foo_topic
<Topic at /plone/Members/test_user_1_/foo-topic-title>
>>> self.folder['bar-document-title']
<ATDocument at /plone/Members/test_user_1_/bar-document-title>
>>> self.folder['baz-event-title']
<ATEvent at /plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title>

Create the browser object we’ll be using.

>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> browser = Browser()
>>> browser.handleErrors = False

Log in as a normal user.

>>> browser.open(portal.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Log in').click()
>>> browser.getControl('Login Name').value = ptc.default_user
>>> browser.getControl(
...     'Password').value = ptc.default_password
>>> browser.getControl('Log in').click()

Change the display layout of the collection to the “Search Form”.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Search Form').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...View changed...

Login as a user that can manage portlets.

>>> owner_browser = Browser()
>>> owner_browser.handleErrors = False
>>> owner_browser.open(portal.absolute_url())
>>> owner_browser.getLink('Log in').click()
>>> owner_browser.getControl(
...     'Login Name').value = ptc.portal_owner
>>> owner_browser.getControl(
...     'Password').value = ptc.default_password
>>> owner_browser.getControl('Log in').click()

Add the search form portlet for this collection to the folder.

>>> owner_browser.open(folder.absolute_url())
>>> owner_browser.getLink('Manage portlets').click()
>>> owner_browser.getControl(
...     'Search form portlet', index=1).selected = True
>>> owner_browser.getForm(index=3).submit() # manually w/o JS
>>> print owner_browser.contents
<...
...Add Search Form Portlet...
>>> header = owner_browser.getControl('Portlet header')
>>> header.value = 'Foo Search Form Title'
>>> foo_topic_path = '/'.join(
...     ('',)+ foo_topic.getPhysicalPath()[
...         len(portal.getPhysicalPath()):])
>>> header.mech_form.new_control(
...     type='checkbox', name="form.target_collection",
...     attrs=dict(checked='checked', value=foo_topic_path))
>>> owner_browser.getControl('Save').click()
>>> print owner_browser.contents
<...
...Foo Search Form Title...

Go to the collection’s edit tab and set the “Form Results Layout” field.

>>> browser.getLink('Edit').click()
>>> browser.getControl('Collection').selected = True
>>> browser.getControl('Save').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Changes saved...

Go to the “Criteria” tab and add a criterion for the workflow state that won’t appear on the form. Then set the query term to return only published content.

>>> browser.getLink('Criteria').click()
>>> form = browser.getForm(name='criteria_select')
>>> form.getControl('State').selected = True
>>> form.getControl(
...     'Select values from list', index=1).selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Add criteria').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...State...
...Select values from list...

Since the test browser doesn’t have JavaScript, test the discrimination of criteria types by index manually.

>>> foo_topic.allowedCriteriaForField('review_state')
['FormSelectionCriterion', 'FormCheckboxCriterion',
'FormSimpleStringCriterion', 'FormListCriterion',
'FormCommaCriterion', 'FormSortCriterion']
>>> foo_topic.allowedCriteriaForField(
...     'review_state', display_list=True)
<DisplayList
[('FormSelectionCriterion', 'Select values from list'),
 ('FormCheckboxCriterion', 'Check values'),
 ('FormSimpleStringCriterion', 'Text'),
 ('FormListCriterion', 'List of values'),
 ('FormCommaCriterion', 'Enter comma separated values'),
 ('FormSortCriterion', 'Sort results')] at ...>

Set the query term and save.

>>> form = browser.getForm(action="criterion_edit_form", index=0)
>>> form.getControl('published').selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Save').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Changes saved...

Open another browser as an anonymous user.

>>> anon_browser = Browser()
>>> anon_browser.handleErrors = False

Before the topic has any form criteria, the search form is not present.

>>> anon_browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url()+'/atct_topic_view')
>>> anon_browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
Traceback (most recent call last):
LookupError

Add a simple string criterion for the SearchableText index on the criteria tab.

>>> form = browser.getForm(name='criteria_select')
>>> form.getControl('Search Text').selected = True
>>> form.getControl(name="criterion_type").getControl(
...     'Text', index=1).selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Add criteria').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Search Text...
...A simple string criterion...

Select the criterion’s ‘value’ field as a form field so it will appear on the search form.

>>> browser.getControl(
...     name='crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     '_formFields:list').getControl('Value').selected = True

Set a default search term.

>>> browser.getControl(
...     name="crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion"
...     "_value").value = 'bar'
>>> browser.getControl(name="form.button.Save").click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Changes saved...

If no form value have been submitted, such as on a fresh load of the topic view, the default term will be used in the query returning only one of the content objects.

>>> len(foo_topic.queryCatalog())
1
>>> anon_browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url()+'/atct_topic_view')
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
<Link text='Bar Document Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/bar-document-title'>
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError

Now that a form criterion has been added, the search form is rendered.

>>> anon_browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> form = anon_browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")

Criterion fields that haven’t been selected in “Form Fields” don’t appear on the search form.

>>> form.getControl(
...     name='form_crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     '_formFields:list')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LookupError: name
'form_crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion_formFields:list'

The label for the criterion corresponds to the form element for the first criterion field.

>>> ctl = form.getControl('Search Text')

Enter a search term and submit the query. The topic will now list the other content object.

>>> ctl.value = 'baz'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
<Link text='Baz Event Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title'>

Since the search form has been submitted, the results are rendered on the layout specified by the “Form Results Layout”.

>>> anon_browser.url.startswith(
...     'http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/foo-topic-title'
...     '/atct_topic_view')
True

The search form portlet also reflects the search term submitted rather than the default value submitted on the criteria tab.

>>> form = anon_browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
>>> ctl = form.getControl('Search Text')
>>> ctl.value
'baz'

If the search form is submitted from this page, the results are still rendered on the same view.

>>> ctl.value = 'bar'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> anon_browser.url.startswith(
...     'http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/foo-topic-title'
...     '/atct_topic_view')
True

Values are also ignored if submitted for criteria fields which are not listed in “Form Fields”.

>>> crit = foo_topic.getCriterion(
...     'SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion')
>>> crit.setFormFields([])
>>> anon_browser.open(
...     foo_topic.absolute_url()+'/atct_topic_view'
...     '?form_crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     '_value=baz')
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
<Link text='Bar Document Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/bar-document-title'>
>>> anon_browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError
>>> crit.setFormFields(['value'])

The search form portlet successfully renders when viewed on a context other than the portlet.

>>> anon_browser.open(folder.absolute_url())
>>> form = anon_browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")

Ensure that collective.formcriteria doesn’t break existing ATTopic instances such as those created by default in a Plone site.

>>> owner_browser.open(portal.news.absolute_url())
>>> print owner_browser.contents
<...
...Site News...
...There are currently no items in this folder...
>>> owner_browser.getLink('Criteria').click()
>>> print owner_browser.contents
<...
...Criteria for News...

Contents View

Change the topic’s display layout and the search form results layout to the contents view.

>>> foo_topic.setFormLayout('folder_contents_view')
>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Tabular Form').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...View changed...

The view renders the contents form.

>>> browser.getForm(name="folderContentsForm")
<zope.testbrowser.browser.Form object at ...>

The topic contents are listed in the contents table form.

>>> browser.getControl('Bar Document Title')
<ItemControl name='paths:list' type='checkbox'
optionValue='/plone/Members/test_user_1_/bar-document-title'
selected=False>
>>> browser.getControl('Baz Event Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LookupError: label 'Baz Event Title'

The search form is also rendered if form criteria are present.

>>> form = browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")

The contents view also reflects user submitted criteria.

>>> form.getControl(
...     name='form_crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     '_value').value = 'baz'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> browser.getControl('Bar Document Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LookupError: label 'Bar Document Title'
>>> browser.getControl('Baz Event Title')
<ItemControl name='paths:list' type='checkbox'
optionValue='/plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title'
selected=False>

Make sure none of the collective.formcriteria extensions interfere with existing ATTopic instances.

>>> browser.open(portal.events.aggregator.absolute_url())

Sorting

Two kinds of sort criteria are supported. Multiple fixed sort criteria can be defined allowing the user to select from among them using links on the batch macro. One form sort criterion can be added per collection to allows the user to specify a sort on the sort form. If both are used, and the user has both submitted a sort from the form and selected a sort from the batch links, the latter criterion in the list of criteria takes effect.

Form sort criteria are not yet implemented.

Fixed Sort Criteria

Set the item count to 1 so that batches will only have one item.

>>> foo_topic = self.folder['foo-topic-title']
>>> foo_topic.setItemCount(1)

Open a browser and log in as a normal user.

>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> from Products.PloneTestCase import ptc
>>> browser = Browser()
>>> browser.handleErrors = False
>>> browser.open(portal.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Log in').click()
>>> browser.getControl('Login Name').value = ptc.default_user
>>> browser.getControl(
...     'Password').value = ptc.default_password
>>> browser.getControl('Log in').click()

Load the criteria edit form of a collection.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Criteria').click()

The sort selection form has been removed from the criteria tab.

>>> browser.getForm(action="criterion_edit_form", index=1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
IndexError: list index out of range

Instead, multiple sort criteria can be added to a collection using the normal criterion add form on the criteria tab.

>>> form = browser.getForm(name="criteria_select")
>>> form.getControl('Relevance').selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Sort results').selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Add criteria').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Added criterion FormSortCriterion for field unsorted...

Add another sort criterion for the Date field reversed.

>>> form = browser.getForm(name="criteria_select")
>>> form.getControl('Effective Date').selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Sort results').selected = True
>>> form.getControl('Add criteria').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Added criterion FormSortCriterion for field effective...

Change the display layout of the collection to the “Search Form” then submit a search criteria to test that the sort links preserve search criteria.

>>> foo_topic.setLayout('criteria_form')
>>> foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'SearchableText','FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     ).setFormFields(['value'])
>>> browser.getLink('View').click()
>>> form = browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
>>> form.getControl('Search Text').value = 'blah'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()

When the batch macro is rendered on a collection view, such as one of the listings, it includes links to the different possible sorts in order. By default, the first sort criteria is selected. The sort links also have id’s and CSS classes for styling support.

>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Sort on:...
...class="formcriteriaSortField...
...id="formcriteria-sort-crit__unsorted_FormSortCriterion...Relevance</span>...
...class="formcriteriaSortField...
...id="formcriteria-sort-crit__effective_FormSortCriterion...Effective Date...
>>> browser.getLink('Relevance')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError

The results are listed in order of weight.

>>> browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
<Link text='Baz Event Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title'>
>>> browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError

When a sort link is clicked, that sort will show as selected and results will be sorted according to the sort criteria.

>>> browser.getLink('Effective Date').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...Sort on:...
...Relevance...
...Effective Date</span>...
>>> browser.getLink('Effective Date')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError
>>> browser.getLink('Relevance')
<Link text='Relevance'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/foo-topic-title/atct_topic_view?crit__unsorted_FormSortCriterion:boolean=True&form_crit__SearchableText_FormSimpleStringCriterion_value=blah&submit=Search'>

The results reflect that the search query is preserved across the new sort selection.

>>> browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
<Link text='Bar Document Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/bar-document-title'>
>>> browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError

If the next batch is selected the sort and search query are preserved.

>>> browser.getLink('Next 1 items').click()
>>> browser.getLink('Bar Document Title')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError
>>> browser.getLink('Baz Event Title')
<Link text='Baz Event Title'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title'>

The batch macro will render the sort links even if there’s only one batch.

>>> foo_topic.setItemCount(0)
>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url()+'/atct_topic_view')
>>> browser.getLink('Effective Date')
<Link text='Effective Date'
url='http://nohost/plone/Members/test_user_1_/foo-topic-title/atct_topic_view?test=&crit__effective_FormSortCriterion:boolean=True'>

Ensure that the extended sort criteria work inside previously created ATTopic instances.

>>> topic = portal.events.aggregator
>>> topic.setSortCriterion('effective', True)
>>> topic.queryCatalog()[0].getObject()
<ATEvent at /plone/Members/test_user_1_/baz-event-title>

Grouped Listing

A variation on the default collection view is provided that lists items grouped by the sort used. This requires that the index used for sorting is also in the catalog metadata columns and this available on the catalog brains.

Sort by creator to that we get at least one group with multiple items.

>>> foo_topic.deleteCriterion('crit__unsorted_FormSortCriterion')
>>> foo_topic.setSortCriterion('Creator', False)

Select the layout.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Grouped Listing').click()
>>> print browser.contents
<...
...View changed...

Now the items are grouped by the sort values.

>>> print browser.contents
<...
...<dl...
...<dt...bar_creator_id...</dt>...
...<dd...
...Baz Event Title...
...</dd...
...<dt...foo_creator_id...</dt>...
...<dd...
...Foo Event Title...
...Bar Document Title...
...</dd...
...</dl>...

The grouped listing layout requires a sort criterion to render and raises an error if one is not present.

>>> foo_topic.deleteCriterion('crit__Creator_ATSortCriterion')
>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
Traceback (most recent call last):
AssertionError: ...

The batch macros still work for topics that have no sort criteria.

>>> foo_topic.setLayout('criteria_form')
>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> form = browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
>>> form.getControl('Search Text').value = 'blah'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> 'Sort on:' in browser.contents
False

CSV Export

The data accessed in tabular form from collections is often exactly the data site admins want to export into other formats such as CSV. This package provides views for exporting the current query’s collection data into various formats. The CSV columns are taken from the collections ‘Table Columns’ field on the edit tab/form regardless of whether the table layout is used. The CSV export link is available as a document action like the print and send-to actions.

Add some criteria to the collection.

>>> foo_topic = self.folder['foo-topic-title']
>>> _ = foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'path', 'FormRelativePathCriterion')
>>> foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'Type', 'FormSelectionCriterion'
...     ).setValue(['Page', 'Event'])
>>> foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'SearchableText','FormSimpleStringCriterion'
...     ).setFormFields(['value'])
>>> _ = foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'unsorted', 'FormSortCriterion')
>>> _ = foo_topic.addCriterion(
...     'effective', 'FormSortCriterion')

Open a browser and log in as a normal user.

>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> from Products.PloneTestCase import ptc
>>> browser = Browser()
>>> browser.handleErrors = False
>>> browser.open(portal.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Log in').click()
>>> browser.getControl('Login Name').value = ptc.default_user
>>> browser.getControl(
...     'Password').value = ptc.default_password
>>> browser.getControl('Log in').click()

The export link isn’t available if the ‘Table Columns’ field is not set.

>>> foo_topic.update(customViewFields=[])
>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Export')
Traceback (most recent call last):
LinkNotFoundError

Add some columns to the ‘Table Columns’ field.

>>> foo_topic.update(customViewFields=['Title', 'Description'])

The export link is now available. Download the raw, un-queried collection results.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> browser.getLink('Export').click()
>>> browser.isHtml
False
>>> print browser.headers
Status: 200 OK...
Content-Disposition: attachment...
Content-Type: text/csv...

Since the testbrowser can’t handle file downloads, we’ll check the CSV output by calling the browser view directly.

>>> print browser.contents
Status: 200 OK...
Content-Type: text/csv
Content-Disposition: attachment;filename=foo-topic-title.csv
Title,Description
Foo Event Title,
Bar Document Title,blah
Baz Event Title,blah blah

Submit a query. The exported CSV reflects the user submitted query and is sorted by relevance.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> form = browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
>>> form.getControl('Search Text').value = 'blah'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> browser.getLink('Export').click()
>>> browser.isHtml
False
>>> print browser.contents
Status: 200 OK...
Content-Type: text/csv
Content-Disposition: attachment;filename=foo-topic-title.csv
Title,Description
Baz Event Title,blah blah
Bar Document Title,blah

Select another sort, The exported CSV reflects the user selected sort and query.

>>> browser.open(foo_topic.absolute_url())
>>> form = browser.getForm(name="formcriteria_search")
>>> form.getControl('Search Text').value = 'blah'
>>> form.getControl(name='submit').click()
>>> browser.getLink('Effective Date').click()
>>> browser.getLink('Export').click()
>>> browser.isHtml
False
>>> print browser.contents
Status: 200 OK...
Content-Type: text/csv
Content-Disposition: attachment;filename=foo-topic-title.csv
Title,Description
Bar Document Title,blah
Baz Event Title,blah blah

  • Add criteria ordering support

  • Form Sort Criteria

    An widget is avialable for selecting which of the possible sort fields should be available for sorting on. The InAndOutWidget is used so that the order can be specified.

    >>> print browser.contents
    <...
    <div class="field ArchetypesInAndOutWidget
    kssattr-atfieldname-sortFields"
    id="archetypes-fieldname-sortFields">...
    ...>Relevance</option>...
    ...>Effective Date</option>...
    

    The InAndOutWidget uses JavaScript so we’ll set the field manually for testing.

    >>> self.login()
    >>> foo_topic.setSortFields(['', 'effective', 'Type'])
    
    >>> form = browser.getForm(name="criteria_select")
    >>> form.getControl('Sort Order').selected = True
    

    Form sort criteria default to sorting on the “Relevance” field corresponds to a sort by weight for searches that include queries against indexs that support weighted results.

    >>> form = browser.getForm(action="criterion_edit_form", index=0)
    >>> form.getControl('Relevance').selected
    True
    
  • Add AJAX search results refresh

  • Add single selection (pulldown, radio) criteria (davisagli)

  • Fix folder_contents view to support deleting, etc.

  • Use subcollections to support AdvancedQuery operations

    Collections will act as grouping/parenthesis and operators. IOW, a collection will have a boolean field to set whether it uses AND or OR to find the intersection or union of its result sets. Sub-collections will not acquire criteria but instead parent collections will treat sub-collections as criteria groupings. Not yet sure how to handle sorting.
