plone.formwidget.autocomplete 1.2.4

AJAX selection widget for Plone

Latest Version: 1.3.0


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.


1.2.4 (2012-10-23)

  • Switch the default parser to use the title as the value, so that titles are used to autocomplete what’s in the text input box. [lentinj]
  • Add a custom parse function that defaults to an identical function to the default one. [lentinj]

1.2.3 (2012-02-13)

  • Fix <input /> element generation for Internet Explorer; in most cases, the generated element would be lacking the name attribute. [mj]

1.2.2 (2011-09-24)

1.2.1 (2011-05-16)

  • Use full widget name in ++widget++ path, don’t try and remove form prefix (which will not behave correctly if widget is part of a subform). [lentinj]

1.2.0 (2011-04-30)

  • Add upgrade step to register formwidget-autocomplete.js, bumping profile version to 1 [lentinj]
  • Split input:radio adding function so the code can be reused when adding in plone.formwidget.contenttree [lentinj]
  • Move the javascript callback to real code, so instances of the widget can be added to the page by cloning existing widgets [lentinj]
  • Allow overriding of the autocomplete URL [lentinj]
  • Fix htmlDecode to return an element, not the nodeValue of an element which is null. [ggozad]
  • No longer include the demo.zcml by default, but rather allow users to include it if needed. [hannosch]
  • Update distribution metadata. [hannosch]
  • Remove direct dependencies. [hannosch]
  • Use the correct ViewPageTemplateFile from Five required in a Zope 2 context. [hannosch]

1.1.1 (2011-02-11)

  • Explicitly include CMFCore’s zcml in demo.zcml, for compatibility with Zope 2.13. [davisagli]

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]

1.0 - 2010-04-19

  • 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]
  • Made the widget work properly in Zope 2.12. [optilude]

1.0b3 - 2009-06-29

  • Fix security validator to work properly on add views and other views using namespace traversal (++add++…) [optilude]

1.0b2 - 2009-04-08

  • Fix security validator to work with urls not including the @@ view name. [optilude]
  • Made widget use getURL() instead of constructing URL from underlying view. This makes it work with complex traversal logic. [optilude]

1.0b1 - 2008-08-28
