complex validators only allow a single render of a field or form

Reported by: kvaml Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: TurboGears Version: 1.0.3
Severity: normal Keywords:


Normally we can render a field repeatedly.

>>> from turbogears import widgets
>>> from turbogears import validators
>>> phone = widgets.TextField("phone",
...     validator=validators.PhoneNumber(),
...     label="Phone Number with area code")
>>> phone.render()
'<input id="phone" type="text" class="textfield" name="phone">'
>>> phone.render()
'<input id="phone" type="text" class="textfield" name="phone">'

However, if we add not_empty=True to the validator, only the first call to render works properly.

>>> phone = widgets.TextField("phone",
...     validator=validators.PhoneNumber(not_empty=True),
...     label="Phone Number with area code"
...     )
>>> phone.render()
'<input id="phone" type="text" class="textfield requiredfield" name="phone">'
>>> phone.render()

I am using python2.4 on fedora 6. All packages were installed with easy_install. Hopefully the trace provides enough useful information.

I just tested on fedora 7 using python 2.5 and could not reproduce the problem. I'll make a detailed comparison of package versions and try to pin down the issue.

The version differences do not appear to be significant.

In [28]: for v in versionset:
   ....:     if worksmap[v] != failmap[v]: print '%16.16s\t%s\t%s' % (v,worksmap[v],failmap[v])
   ....: name           works   fails
          _mysql        1.2.2   1.2.1
         MySQLdb        1.2.2   1.2.1
       distutils        2.5.0   2.4.4
          urllib        1.17    1.16
      simplejson        1.7.1   1.3
        optparse        1.5.3   1.5a2
         urllib2        2.5     2.4

I assume there is some unexpected difference between python 2.5 and 2.4.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

The simple fix was to add

__metaclass__ = type

to the top of the controlers.py file!

The Form and Root classes inherited from widgets.TableForm? and controllers.RootController?, so it is not clear to me why this was necessary.
