Provides SecureOrderedMultiSelectWidget which fixes an acquisition bug in OrderedMultiSelectWidget in

Project Description


This package fixes a Plone/Zope2 Acquisition bug for the OrderedMultiSelectWidget that appears in line 556.

Note: The module has been moved to zope.formlib in newer versions of zope/ztk.

The OrderedMultiSelectWidget is used automatically for zope.schema.List type fields.

How do I know if this bug affects me?

If you get errors in your traceback or error_log similar to the one below, you might have be affected: (XXX is variable)

Line 166, Column 8
Expression: <PathExpr standard:u’view/selected’>
{‘args’: (),
‘context’: <zope.schema._field.List object at 0x2aaab329f110>,
‘usage’: <zope.pagetemplate.pagetemplate.TemplateUsage object at 0x2aaab1800090>,
‘view’: < object at 0x2aaaae5684d0>,
‘views’: < object at 0x2aaab1800650>}
Module zope.tales.expressions, line 217, in __call__
Module zope.tales.expressions, line 211, in _eval
Module, line 562, in selected
Module zope.schema.vocabulary, line 124, in getTerm
LookupError: XXXX


Just make sure that collective.orderedmultiselectwidget is installed via the plone control panel or the portal_quickinstaller tool in the ZMI.

Afterwards it should just work.

Why not fix the bug in and zope.formlib? and zope.formlib are Plone/Zope2/Acquisition agnostic. They do not depend on Acquisition and no one will want them to.

A bug might however be contributed to I’ll contact the dev-list, but for now, this is a bug-fix package for people being affected on in-production systems.
