A collection of widgets, templates and other components for use with z3c.form and Plone

A Plone specific integration and HTML mark-up for z3c.form.


This Plone package is aimed for developers who want to create forms in Python code.

Please read the documentation for z3c.form, which contains important information about using z3c.form in Zope 2 in general. For the most part, that package contains the “active” parts that you need to know about, and this package provides “passive” overrides that make the forms integrate with Plone.


Plone 4.1 and later include in Plone core. Older versions need to install the addon separately as your own add-on dependency.


The following Plone and z3c.form integration is added

  • Plone integration
  • Plone specific widget frame
  • Date/time pickers
  • WYSIWYG widget (TinyMCE visual editor with Plone support)
  • CRUD forms

Out of the box form templates

The form and widget templates are applied in the following order

  • specific
  • plone.z3cform specific
  • z3c.form specific package overrides the @@ploneform-macros view from plone.z3cform, using standard Plone markup for form fields, fieldsets, etc.

All the macros described in plone.z3cform are still available. In addition, you can use the widget_rendering macro to render all the default widgets, but none of the fieldsets (groups) or the fieldset headers (which would be rendered with the fields macro).

Each widget is rendered using the @@ploneform-render-widget view, which by default includes the widget’s label, required indicator, description, errors, and the result of widget.render(). This view may be overridden for particular widget types in order to customize this widget chrome.

Customizing form behavior

Form method

If your form instance defines a property called method it allows you to set whether form is HTTP POST or HTTP GET. The default is POST. This translates to <form method="post"> attribute.


class HolidayServiceSearchForm(form.Form):
        """ Example search form of which results can be bookmarked.

        Bookmarking is possible because we use HTTP GET method.

        method = "get"

Form action

Form action property defines HTTP target where the form is posted. The default is the same page where the form was rendered, request.getURL().


class HolidayServiceSearchForm(form.Form):

    def action(self):
        """ Redefine <form action=''> attribute.

        We use URL fragment to define the <a> anchor
        were we directly scroll at the results when the form is posted,
        skipping unnecessary form fields part. The user can scroll
        back there if he/she wants modify the parameters.

        # Context item URL + form view name + link fragment.
        # This works for HTTP GET forms only.
        # Note that we cannot use request.getURL() as it might contain
        # 1) prior fragment 2) GET query parameters messing up the UrL
        return self.context.absolute_url() + "/holidayservice_view" + "#searched"

Fieldsets and tabs

You can fieldsets to your form if you subclass the form from The default behavior of Plone is to turn these fieldsets to tabs (as seen on any Edit view of content item).

You can disable this behavior for your form:

class ReportForm(, z3c.form.form.Form):

    # Disable turn fieldsets to tabs behavior
    enable_form_tabbing  = False

Unload protection

The default behaviour on Plone is to add a confirm box if you leave a form you have modified without having submitted it.

You can disable this behavior for your form:

class SearchForm(, z3c.form.form.Form):

    # Disable unload protection behavior
    enable_unload_protection  = False

CSRF Protection

A common vulnerability affecting web forms is cross-site request forgery (CSRF). This attack occurs when the user of your site visits a third-party site that uses Javascript to post to a URL on your site without the user’s knowledge, taking advantage of the user’s active session. can protect against this type of attack by adding a unique token as a hidden input when rendering the form, and checking to make sure it is present as a request parameter when form actions are executed.

To turn on this protection, enable the form’s enableCSRFProtection attribute. Example:

class PasswordForm(form.Form):
    """Form to set the user's password."""
    enableCSRFProtection = True

Form main template override

Forms are framed by FormWrapper views. It places rendered form inside Plone page frame. The default FormWrapper is supplied automatically, but you can override it.

Below is a placeholder example with few <select> inputs.


import zope.schema
import zope.interface
from zope.i18nmessageid import MessageFactory
from Products.Five.browser.pagetemplatefile import ViewPageTemplateFile as FiveViewPageTemplateFile

from zope.schema.vocabulary import SimpleVocabulary
from zope.schema.vocabulary import SimpleTerm

import z3c.form

import plone.z3cform.templates

_ = MessageFactory('your.addon')

def make_terms(items):
    """ Create zope.schema terms for vocab from tuples """
    terms = [SimpleTerm(value=pair[0], token=pair[0], title=pair[1]) for pair in items]
    return terms

output_type_vocab = SimpleVocabulary(make_terms([("list", "Patient list"), ("summary", "Summary")]))

class IReportSchema(zope.interface.Interface):
    """ Define reporter form fields """
    outputType = zope.schema.Choice(
        title=u"Output type",
        description=u"How do you want the output",

    country = zope.schema.Choice(
        description=u"Which country to report",

    hospital = zope.schema.Choice(
        description=u"Which hospital to report",

class ReportForm(z3c.form.form.Form):
    """ A form to output a HTML report from chosen parameters """

    fields = z3c.form.field.Fields(IReportSchema)

    ignoreContext = True

    output = None

    @z3c.form.button.buttonAndHandler(_('Make Report'), name='report')
    def report(self, action):
        data, errors = self.extractData()
        if errors:
            self.status = "Please correct errors"

        # Create sample item which we can consume in the page template
        self.output = dict(country="foobar")

        self.status = _(u"Report complete")

# IF you want to customize form frame you need to make a custom FormWrapper view around it
# (default plone.z3cform.layout.FormWrapper is supplied automatically with templates)
report_form_frame = plone.z3cform.layout.wrap_form(ReportForm, index=FiveViewPageTemplateFile("templates/"))

Example configure.zcml:




Example templates/reporter.html:

<html metal:use-macro="context/main_template/macros/master"

    <metal:block fill-slot="main">

        <h1 class="documentFirstHeading" tal:content="view/label | nothing" />

        <div id="content-core">

            <div id="form-input">
                <span tal:replace="structure view/contents" />

            <div id="form-output" tal:condition="view/form_instance/output">
                Chosen country: <b tal:content="view/form_instance/output/country" />



Widget frame override

You can override widget templates as instructed for z3c.form. renders a frame around each widget which usually consists of

  • Label
  • Required marker
  • Description

You might want to customize this widget frame for your own form. Below is an example how to do it.

  • Copy to your own package and customize it in way you wish
  • Add the following to configure.zcml
  • Create a new marker interface in Python code
from zope.interface import Interface

class IDemoWidget(Interface):
  • Then apply this marker interface to all of your widgets in form.update()
from zope.interface import alsoProvides

class MyForm(...):
    def update(self):
        super(MyForm, self).update()
        for widget in form.widgets.values():
            alsoProvides(widget, IDemoWidget)

Hide fields that have no value

The .empty css class marks the fields that have no value. If you don’t want to display these fields in view mode, add the following css in your theme:

.template-view .empty.field {
   display: none;


To test it is recommended to use function test layer which will do setup for you. Read manual for further instructions.

If you still need to test forms on lower level in unit tests you need to enable support manually. Below is an example:

import unittest2 as unittest

from zope.interface import alsoProvides
from zope.publisher.browser import setDefaultSkin

from z3c.form.interfaces import IFormLayer

class TestFilteringIntegration(unittest.TestCase):
    """ Test that filtering options work on the form """


    def setUp(self):
        super(TestFilteringIntegration, self).setUp()
        request = self.layer["request"]
        alsoProvides(request, IFormLayer) #suitable for testing z3c.form views

    def test_report_form_filtering(self):
        reporter = ReportForm(self.layer["portal"], self.layer["request"])


Here are some common errors you might encounter with

ComponentLookupError in updateWidgets()

You probably forgot to include in your product’s configuration.zcml. See Installation above.

KSS inline validation (deprecated)


Plone 4.3+ and later no longer includes KSS

This package installs AJAX handlers to perform inline field validation. On any form, the field will be validated when the user blurs a field.

This relies on the KSS framework, and is only installed if is available. If you are using a custom form, note that you must define the following “kassattr” variables:

  • formname, the name of the form view, defined on the <form /> element.
  • fieldname, the name of the current field (same as the widget name), defined on an element wrapping the field.
  • fieldset, defined for non-default fieldsets on the <fieldset /> element.

This also assumes the standard Plone form markup is used. See templaes/ for details.

WYSIWYG widget

The package provides an implementation of the Plone WYSIWYG widget compatible with z3c.form. This will allow you to use Kupu, FCKeditor and other editors compatible with the Plone WYSIWYG interface in your z3c.form forms.

To use, simply set the widget factory for the widget you’d like to be displayed with the WYSIWYG widget:

>>> from zope import interface, schema
>>> from z3c.form import form, field
>>> from z3c.form.interfaces import INPUT_MODE
>>> from import WysiwygFieldWidget
>>> class IProfile(interface.Interface):
...     name = schema.TextLine(title=u"Name")
...     age = schema.Int(title=u"Age")
...     bio = schema.Text(title=u"Bio")
>>> class MyForm(form.Form):
...     fields = field.Fields(IProfile)
...     fields['bio'].widgetFactory[INPUT_MODE] = WysiwygFieldWidget

Inline validation

First, let’s set up some infrastructure:

>>> from zope.interface import alsoProvides
>>> from plone.testing.z2 import makeTestRequest
>>> from zope.annotation.interfaces import IAttributeAnnotatable
>>> from z3c.form.interfaces import IFormLayer
>>> app = layer['app']
>>> def make_request(form=None, lang='en'):
...     request = makeTestRequest({'HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE': lang})
...     if form is None:
...         form = {}
...     request.form.update(form)
...     alsoProvides(request, IFormLayer)
...     alsoProvides(request, IAttributeAnnotatable)
...     return request

Then we create a simple z3c form

>>> from zope import interface, schema
>>> from z3c.form import form, field, button
>>> from import FormWrapper
>>> class MySchema(interface.Interface):
...     age = schema.Int(title=u"Age")
>>> class MyForm(form.Form):
...     fields = field.Fields(MySchema)
...     ignoreContext = True # don't use context to get widget data
...     @button.buttonAndHandler(u'Apply')
...     def handleApply(self, action):
...         data, errors = self.extractData()
...         print data['age'] # ... or do stuff
>>> class MyFormWrapper(FormWrapper):
...     form = MyForm
...     label = u"Please enter your age"
>>> from zope.component import provideAdapter
>>> from zope.publisher.interfaces.browser import IBrowserRequest
>>> from zope.interface import Interface
>>> provideAdapter(adapts=(Interface, IBrowserRequest),
...                provides=Interface,
...                factory=MyFormWrapper,
...                name=u"test-form")

Let’s verify that worked:

>>> from zope.component import getMultiAdapter
>>> from zope.interface import Interface, implements
>>> from Acquisition import Implicit
>>> class Bar(Implicit):
...     implements(Interface)
...     def restrictedTraverse(self, name):
...         # fake traversal to the form
...         if name.startswith('@@'):
...             return getMultiAdapter((self, self._REQUEST), Interface, name[2:]).__of__(self)
...         else:
...             return getattr(self, name)
>>> context = Bar()
>>> request = make_request()
>>> context._REQUEST = request # evil test fake
>>> formWrapper = getMultiAdapter((context, request), name=u"test-form")
>>> formWrapper
<Products.Five...MyFormWrapper object ...>
>>> formWrapper.form
<class ''>
>>> del context, request

Inline validation

Inline validation is invoked via the @@z3cform_validate_field view.

>>> context = Bar()
>>> request = make_request(form={'form.widgets.age': 'Title'})
>>> context._REQUEST = request
>>> form = MyForm(context, request)
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((form, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")

This is wired up with jQuery. When the user leaves a form control with inline validation enabled, it will be called with the following parameters:

>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'form.widgets.age')
'{"errmsg": "The entered value is not a valid integer literal."}'
>>> request = make_request(form={'form.widgets.age': '20'})
>>> context._REQUEST = request
>>> form = MyForm(context, request)
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((form, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'form.widgets.age')
'{"errmsg": ""}'

If the field name (fname) is not provided by the client, the validation should return without issue:

>>> z3cform_validate_field()
'{"errmsg": ""}'
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=None)
'{"errmsg": ""}'

Inline validation with groups

We use and validate the field ‘name’ that’s part of a group. Inline validation is invoked via the @@z3cform_validate_field view.

>>> request = make_request(form={'': ''})
>>> context._REQUEST = request
>>> from import MyGroupFormWrapper
>>> form = MyGroupFormWrapper(context, request)
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((form, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")

The validation view takes an Attribute fset with ether the numeric index or the name of the group.

>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'', fset="0")
'{"errmsg": "Required input is missing."}'
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'', fset="mygroup")
'{"errmsg": "Required input is missing."}'
>>> request = make_request(form={'': u'Name'})
>>> context._REQUEST = request
>>> form = MyGroupFormWrapper(context, request)
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((form, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'', fset="0")
'{"errmsg": ""}'
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'', fset="mygroup")
'{"errmsg": ""}'

Inline-Validation and Translation of ErrorSnippets

We use and validate the field ‘name’ that’s part of a group. Inline validation is invoked via the @@z3cform_validate_field view.

>>> request = make_request(form={'': ''}, lang='de',)
>>> context._REQUEST = request
>>> form = MyGroupFormWrapper(context, request)
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((form, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")

The validation view takes an Attribute fieldset with the index of the group. The error is only shown when warning_only is explicitly switched off (matching the behavior of archetypes.)

>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'', fset="0")
'{"errmsg": "Erforderliche Eingabe fehlt."}'

Forms embedded inside normal views

It’s possible to embed z3c.form Forms inside a normal BrowserView via viewlets, portlets or tiles.

Currently the name of the form to be validated is gotten from the URL. For embedded forms this can’t work since the URL only has the containing view’s name.

Until a lasting solution is found, we just make sure that validation doesn’t raise an exception if it receives a normal browerview as the supposed form.

>>> from zope.publisher.browser import BrowserView
>>> class MyNormalView(BrowserView):
...     """ """
>>> provideAdapter(adapts=(Interface, IBrowserRequest),
...                provides=Interface,
...                factory=MyNormalView,
...                name=u"my-view")

Let’s verify that it gets called…

>>> context = Bar()
>>> request = make_request()
>>> view = getMultiAdapter((context, request), name=u"my-view")
>>> view
<MyNormalView object ...>

Inline validation is invoked via the @@z3cform_validate_field view. But in this case no validation output should be returned.

>>> context = Bar()
>>> request = make_request(form={'form.widgets.age': 'Title'})
>>> z3cform_validate_field = getMultiAdapter((view, request), name=u"z3cform_validate_field")
>>> z3cform_validate_field(fname=u'form.widgets.age')
'{"errmsg": ""}'


2.2 (2017-01-02)

Breaking changes:

  • Test fixes for 2.1. While this is not a breaking change functionality or API wise, the tests do only pass with 2.1. [thet]

Bug fixes:

  • Fix RelatedItemsDataConverter with relation lists, where in an iteration a wrong value was checked to be existent. Fixes failures in situations, where a None value was part of the relation list. [thet]

2.1.2 (2016-12-02)

Bug fixes:

  • Added option to override <form action=”“>. [miohtama]
  • Updated README regarding form action and method. [miohtama]

0.5.0 - 2010-04-20

  • Render errors from group form widget manager validators. Fixes [davisagli]
  • Default to showing the default fieldset, rather than the first non-default fieldset. [davisagli]
  • Replace the required field indicator image with a unicode box, refs [davisagli, limi]
  • Replaced the existing radiobutton-based boolean widget with the standard single checkbox Plone version. [limi]
  • Add @@ploneform-render-widget view, so that the widget chrome can be customized for particular widget types. [davisagli]
  • Added slots to the titlelessform macro. See README.txt in plone.z3cform for details. [optilude, davisagli]
  • Cleaned up templates to match Plone 4 conventions. [optilude]
  • Made templates and inline validation work with standalone forms as supported by plone.z3cform 0.6 and later. [optilude]
  • Installed a browser layer IPloneFormLayer with this package’s extension profile. This inherits from z3c.form’s IFormLayer, allowing the default widgets to work. You should always install this package in portal_quickinstaller before using z3c.form forms in Plone. [optilude]
  • Made the textlines widget the default for sequence types with text/ascii line value types. The default widget from z3c.form is too confusing. [optilude]
  • Use form method defined in form class. This allows HTTP GET forms. Before method was hardcoded to “post” in the template. [miohtama]

0.4.9 - 2010-01-08

  • Remove unused (and broken on Plone 4) lookup of the current user’s WYSIWYG editor preference. The wysiwyg_support template does this for us. [davisagli]

0.4.8 - 2009-10-23

  • Made the KSS validator use publish traversal instead of OFS traversal to find the form. This makes it usable with forms reached by custom IPublishTraverse adapters. [davisagli]
  • Added enable_form_tabbing option to not transform fieldsets into tabs. [vincentfretin]
  • Added an id to the generated form. [vincentfretin]
  • Fixed issue in fieldset.current hidden input was never generated. [vincentfretin]

0.4.7 - 2009-09-25

  • Set plone i18n domain for “Info” and “Error” messages in so they are translated. [vincentfretin]

0.4.6 - 2009-07-26

  • Include plone.z3cform’s overrides.zcml from our own overrides.zcml. [optilude]
  • Updated to collective.z3cform.datetimewidget>=0.1a2 to fix a ZCML conflict with z3c.form. [davisagli]

0.4.5 - 2009-05-25

  • Made the KSS form support conditional on both kss.core and Archetypes being installed. [hannosch]
  • Use the date/time widgets from collective.z3cform.datetimewidget as the default widget for Date and Datetime fields. [davisagli]

0.4.4 - 2009-05-03

0.4.3 - 2009-04-17

  • Added a display template for the WYSIWYG widget. [optilude]
  • Make the ?fieldset.current query string variable work. Set it to the id of a fieldset other than default to pre-select a different fieldset, e.g. …/@@formview?fieldset.current=3 [optilude]
  • Hide the ‘default’ fieldset if there’s nothing to show there. [optilude]
  • Provide ‘portal’ variable in wysiwyg template, as its used by some editors. [davisagli]

0.4.2 - 2008-09-04

  • Make the WYSIWYG widget work also for non-Acquisition wrapped content.

0.4.1 - 2008-08-21

  • Removed maximum version dependency on zope.component. This should be left to indexes, known good sets or explicit version requirements in buildouts. If you work with zope.component >= 3.5 you will also need five.lsm >= 0.4. [hannosch]
  • Make use of new plone.z3cform support for looking up the layout template by adapter. This means that forms now no longer need to depend on unless they want to use Plone-specific widgets.

0.4.0 - 2008-07-31

  • Add inline validation support with KSS

  • Require zope.component <= 3.4.0 to prevent compatibility issues with five.localsitemanager, of which a buggy version (0.3) is pinned by plone.recipe.plone 3.1.4. Upgrade to this version if you’re seeing:

    Module five.localsitemanager.registry, line 176, in registeredUtilities
    ValueError: too many values to unpack

0.3.2 - 2008-07-25

  • Fixed a bug in where ‘has_groups’ and ‘show_default_label’ for fieldsets were set in the ‘form’ macro, rendering the ‘field’ macro unusable by itself.

0.3.1 - 2008-07-24

  • Fixed a bug where we would use the form macros defined in plone.z3cform instead of our own.

0.3 - 2008-07-24

  • Create this package from Plone-specific bits that have been factored out of plone.z3cform.
