Locking integration for dexterity content objects.

Project description


The package provides a plone.locking integration for dexterity.


Just use the behavior in your dexterity content type. Also check the condition of the “edit” action of your type, it should check if the object is locked.

In your profiles/default/types/YOURTYPE.xml add the behavior and the edit action:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<object name="example.conference.presenter" meta_type="Dexterity FTI"
        i18n:domain="example.conference" xmlns:i18n="">

    <!-- enabled behaviors -->
    <property name="behaviors">
        <element value="" />

    <action action_id="edit"
        <permission value="Modify portal content"/>


The ILocking behavior enables locking support for your content type. This adds the ITTWLockable interface from plone.locking. The locking viewlet from is also working for the dexterity content type.


1.0.6 (2018-11-21)

Bug fixes:

  • Cleanup project level files (, .travis-ci.yml…) [maurits] [gforcada] (#2524)

1.0.5 (2017-02-12)

Bug fixes:

  • Add coding header on python files. [gforcada]
  • Unskip test for Zope 4, as isolation problems are already fixed. [thet]

1.0.4 (2016-05-02)


  • Add behavior short name. [jensens]

1.0.3 (2016-02-20)


  • Use a functional layer to resolve test isolation problems. [gforcada]
  • Refactor doctest to an integration test and skip it for Zope 4 due to isolation problems. [pbauer]
  • Changed i18n_domain to “plone”. Requires 4.3.9 or higher. [claytonc]

1.0.2 (2015-09-09)

  • Remove superfluous ‘for’. [fulv]
  • Fix tests: redirect was changed in commit e7367258. [jone]
  • If the content is locked, the redirect points to the default view and not to the absolute_url of the object. It avoids image opening on redirect [parruc]

1.0.1 (2011-12-06)

  • Fix version requirement of plone.dexterity: 1.1 is compatible. [jone]

1.0 (2011-11-27)

  • Fixed problem: locks were not released when editing content and saving it without changing anything. Fixed by using new IEditFinishedEvent instead of IObjectModifiedEvent. [jbaumann]
  • Fixed problem which caused widget traversal to fail. The edit form is now protected for non-anonymous user, since locking for anyonmous users does not work anyway. [jbaumann]
  • Initial implementation [jbaumann]
