Automatically collect fields for a Zeam Form.

Project description

zeam.form.autofields is able to collect fields definition for your form. This enable you to create forms with a plugable list of fields.


You need first to define a group of fields. This will be just an interface:

>>> from zope.interface import Interface

>>> class IReplyFields(Interface):
...    pass

Now you can define groups of fields:

>>> from zeam.form import base, autofields

>>> class ReplyInformation(autofields.AutoFields):
...     autofields.order(0)
...     fields = base.Fields(base.Field('Comment'))

>>> class ReplyBlogInformation(autofields.AutoFields):
...     autofields.order(10)
...     fields = base.Fields(base.Field('Blog URL'))

And you will be able to use those fields on your form somewhere else:

>>> class ReplyForm(base.Form):
...     fields = autofields.FieldsCollector(IReplyFields)


In addition to its API, zeam.form.autofields export the one of zeam.form.base.
