File field and widget with enhancements for zope3.

Project Description


A correctly working File widget and field for zope.

The standard FileWidget returns a string instead of an IFile instance, which means it will always fail schema validation in formlib.

In addition this widget will also extract the filename and Content-Type from the request.


Widget originally developed for Reflecto

Further enhancements

Version 1.3

  • Fix FileViewDispatcher (the inline images on forms) to work with forms that rely on adapters [ldr]

Version 1.2

  • Don’t pretend we have a file if we don’t actually have one (e.g. this is an add form and validation failed) [optilude]
  • Fix IE bug - IE prepends the full local path to the filename [optilude]

Version 1.1

  • Add an image widget and field. [mj]

Version 1.0

  • Extract file and widget from reflecto [ldr]
  • Enhance input widget to have same functionality as Archetypes file widget. Create display widget and view on IPageForm to expose file downloads from forms. [ldr]
