A pluggable control panel.

Project Description
Project Description

This product is a pluggable control panel.

The idea behind it is the following.

- You want a control panel for your settings.
- You don't want to make new control panels all the time.
- You want all your settings to be in the same control panel
- You want tabs in your control panel.

How to use it

- install medialog.controlpanel (or add it as a dependecy in your product)
- then do the following in your own product

In a py-file ( maybe):


from z3c.form import interfaces
from zope import schema
#from zope.interface import Interface
from zope.interface import alsoProvides
from plone.directives import form
from medialog.controlpanel.interfaces import IMedialogControlpanelSettingsProvider

from zope.i18nmessageid import MessageFactory

_ = MessageFactory('your.product')

class IMyProductSettings(form.Schema):
"""Adds settings to medialog.controlpanel

label=_(u'name of My Settings'),

my_field = schema.TextLine(
title=_(u"label_my_field", default=u"My Field"),
default=u"My description")

alsoProvides(IMyProductSettings, IMedialogControlpanelSettingsProvider)


In your products profile:

Add a registry.xml field with the following content:


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<records interface="my.product.interfaces.IMyProductSettings">
<value key="my_field"></value>

Of course, change MyProduct / my_field to your own names.

Some of the code is stolen (shamelessly) from Bluedynamics and Nathan van Gheem.
