Project description


collective.wfform gives a developer the ability to present a z3c.form
during a workflow transition.

To implement this for a transition in a particular workflow,
change the transition url from:




This will give you a jQuery popup form with a comments field.
To add your own fields, add a method to your content type which
returns a z3c schema based on the transition.

security.declareProtected(permissions.ModifyPortalContent, 'getSchemaForTransition')
def getSchemaForTransition(self, transition):
"""Return a fieldset depending on the transition"""
if transition == 'my_transition':
return IMyTransitionForm

IMyTransitionForm should be a standard interface class with a zope3 schema.

To process the data from the form, add another method onto your class to manage this.

security.declareProtected(permissions.ModifyPortalContent, 'processTransitionForm')
def processTransitionForm(self, data):
"""Return a fieldset depending on the transition"""
if data.has_key('my_field'):

collective.wfform Installation

To install collective.wfform into the global Python environment (or a workingenv),
using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

* When you're reading this you have probably already run
``easy_install collective.wfform``. Find out how to install setuptools
(and EasyInstall) here:

* If you are using Zope 2.9 (not 2.10), get `pythonproducts`_ and install it

python install --home /path/to/instance

into your Zope instance.

* Create a file called ``collective.wfform-configure.zcml`` in the
``/path/to/instance/etc/package-includes`` directory. The file
should only contain this::

<include package="collective.wfform" />

.. _pythonproducts:

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance
recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

* Add ``collective.wfform`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

eggs =

* Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zcml =

* Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

$ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package
from another package's configure.zcml file.
