Extensions for zope.formlib

Project description

gocept.form provides some extended functionality for zope.formlib and z3c.form. To use the package with formlib support, require it using gocept.form[formlib]. To use the package with z3c.form support, require it using gocept.form[z3cform].

Destructive Actions

Destructive actions allow marking actions that can potentially cause harm. Those actions will be rendered as buttons and - on JavaScript-capable platforms - be disabled by default. Additionally a checkbox is rendered that allows enabling the corresponding button.

Grouped Fields

gocept.form.grouped provides a very low-tech way of grouping schema fields into field sets. The styling is applied only via CSS.

Base Add and Edit forms

gocept.form.base.Add and gocept.form.base.Edit providing some common code to make implementing basic forms more convenient.
