AJAX selection widget for Plone

Project description


plone.formwidget.autocomplete is a z3c.form widget for use with Plone. It uses the jQuery Autocomplete widget, and has graceful fallback for non- Javascript browsers.

There is a single-select version (AutocompleteFieldWidget) for Choice fields, and a multi-select one (AutocompleteMultiFieldWidget) for collection fields (e.g. List, Tuple) with a value_type of Choice.

When using this widget, the vocabulary/source has to provide the IQuerySource interface from z3c.formwidget.query and have a search() method.

1.1 (2010-08-25)

  • Force the inserted HTML radio buttons to be interpreted as HTML instead of text. [dukebody]
  • Fall back to the site to perform content-related operations if the context is not wrapped into an aquisition chain. [dukebody]
  • Compute the view name as the request URL left-stripped the content absolute URL. [dukebody]
  • Use the same display template for single- and multi-selection: The single selection display template was non functional before. The value of a single selection field is wrapped in a list anyways so the multiselection template renders the single selection field just fine. ->
  • Update widget in the autocomplete-search browser view: The self.context.update() call rebinds to source which previously was only bound during traversal. This avoids problems with sources that only work after security is applied. [gaudenzius]

  • Issue 107: plone.formwidget.autocomplete: problems in IE8 when changing value Added a JavaScript work around, which dechecks all existing radio fields before adding a new one which is checked. [jbaumann]
