FileField evaluates to the actual file content and thus breaks output

Reported by: wmark Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.5
Component: TG Widgets Version: 1.0.2
Severity: normal Keywords:


Given that you added a FileField to a WidgetsList you will be able to upload files (such as images).

But, if you use that WidgetsList in a form to display current data and if that FileField is linked with a existing model's attribute...

what currently is

... the value of that attribute is displayed. If it is an image being stored in database, this will rise an exception and thus break output. (ValueError with KID as of malformed output)


... the form should contain something like "a file exists" or any other indicator that there is something (or not/None) - but not the content itself!

Can you please provide some code that exhibits the problem?

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by wmark


class ContactFields(WidgetsList):
    title   = TextField(label=_("title"))
    fname   = TextField(label=_("first name"))
    lname   = TextField(label=_("last name"))
    photo   = FileField(label=_("photo"))

contact_form = TableForm(

Methods are similar to those described in the TG book, chapter 4. Thus, the data is displayed by the form, too. (New, edit/save)

The widget code alone is not enough to see what your trying to do. Please post relevant controller and template code. Use a  pastebin service and post the URL here.
