PloneFormGen provides a generic Plone form generator using fields, widgets and validators from Archetypes.
Actions like mailing or saving form input are incorporated by included plug-in adapters.
This product provides a generic Plone form generator using fields, widgets and validators from Archetypes. It makes it possible to build simple contact, information-gathering or data-entry forms through Plone's interface.
To use it, create a form folder, then add form fields as contents. Individual fields can display and validate themselves for testing purposes. The form folder creates a form from all the contained field content objects.
Final disposition of form input is handled via plug in action products. Action adapters included with this release include a mailer and a save-data adapter that saves input in tab-separated format for later download. When you first add a form folder, it's configured as simple response form with input mailed to the owner.
Since PloneFormGenerator uses Archetypes fields, widgets and validators, it's also a good tool for rapidly prototyping forms intended for use with Archetypes-derived content types.
What's New in This Release:
· Viewing mailer w/ Zope 2.8.7 and Plone 2.5.1 caused unicode decode error in fgFieldsDisplayList.
· No similar error in Plone 2.1.x or with Plone 2.5.1 / Zope 2.9.x. Fixed.
